Quality Circumference Measurement (QCM)

Quality circumference measurement is available for single row cigarette makers and KDF2 filter makers. It consists of a sensor and the evaluation unit (display, software, etc.) with visual and acoustical warning signals.

The sensor is equipped as follows:
● State-of-the-art CCD-measuring technique
● Maintenance and calibration free due to absence of moving or wearing parts
● Serial interface RS232, Profibus-DP
● For products from 0,2 up to 10 mm diameter
● Compressed-air fluid including hose-system
● Mechanical connection
● Manual (EN, GER)

The evaluation unit is equipped as follows:
● Beckhoff IPC
● 5,7” TFT – colour monitor
● User friendly touch screen operation
● Connection to supporting arm with signal light
● Interface with 16 digital inputs and 16 outputs including housing
● Trends and statistics (for 1 month, 90 shifts, no storage, export possible)
● Manual (EN, GER)

● Online measuring of the rod diameter during production
● Visual display of two different kinds of warning level (parametrised by customer)
● Acoustic and visual signals to indicate necessary actions by operator
● Possibility to stop the machine due to free of potential contact
● Ensuring stable diameter through online measuring system
● Constant production for downstream machines
● Free of potential input for start of online measuring (e.g. rod detection signal)
● Detecting trends for min. 1month

Quality Circumference Control (QCC)

● Functional extension for the online circumference measurement (QCM)
● Automatical fine adjustment of diameter
● New sealing chamber
● Complete system from one source
● Fully adjustable to requirement
