Lump & neckdown detectors for wires, conductors, optical fibres, cables, tubes and hoses

KW 13/33TRIO
Lump & Neckdown Detection of the Highest Level

For continuous quality control, lump & neckdown detectors are as important as diameter gauges and spark testers. The new line of KW TRIO detectors capture with the highest accuracy, reliability and velocity, even the smallest lumps and neck downs in wires, conductors, optical fibres, cables, tubes and hoses. 3-axis detectors provide more precise detection of shortterm faults, because very often, in wire and cable products, the fault covers only a limited angle on the product circumference, e.g. small bumps or blisters. The experience of a pioneer for on-line measurement Our lump and neckdown detectors are based on ZUMBACH's experience of almost 60 years in development and production of optical diameter measurement and fault detection solutions. In order to detect product defects quickly and reliably, ZUMBACH offers fault detectors based on the latest technologies to ensure that high quality products can be produced reliably and with the utmost efficiency.

• 3 times higher certainty of detection as with models with less axes
• Flexible mounting concept
• Remote operation and display unit
• Micro-processor for intelligent fault analysis and classification
• Integrated air purging of the measuring windows
• Theoretically unlimited lifetime
• Detailed fault log
• Insensitive to stray light
