Sheet width measurement and position determination of fabric sheet edges

The MLG-2 WebChecker measuring automation light grid is perfectly suited for determining the edge position and width of fabric sheets during ongoing processes. Changeover times due to changes to the sheet width are reduced to a minimum with the MLG-2 WebChecker since mechanical realignment is not required. In addition, fabric defects as well as their position can be reliably determined and passed on to the machine controller.
