Starting from its original, first-ever clear label sensor, Lion Precision continues to offer the most precise label sensors on the market, utilizing capacitive or ultrasonic technology to eliminate sensitivity to color or contrast. We have also expanded into new applications as our customers have asked us to develop solutions for some of their most difficult process applications. Servocontrols will work with you to determine the right solution for your application to help you reduce time to market and improve throughput.
Optics-free sensing technology is at the heart of an LRD clear label sensor. They see labels regular “eyes” cannot see. This improved technology also makes them more precise and much faster than traditional label sensors – even on ordinary paper labels. More than 50,000 LRD label sensors are installed across the globe and testify to their accuracy and reliability.
Label Sensing – Capacitive label sensing measures thickness change between the label and backing material
Visual Inspection – High-speed visual inspection machines can move at a rate of 300 meters/ min. At these speeds, registration errors for traditional sensors can become an issue, even on paper labels.
Splice Detection – See-through solid or films. LRD’s will sense splices or hidden materials not measurable with photo eyes.
Adhesive Detection – Easily detect the presence or absence of adhesive. With a fast triggering speed and no need for visual inspection, get the job done quickly and reliably with an LRD.
Edge Tracking – Use LRD’s to track the edge of your web. The information provided from our sensor will allow you to set maximum travel tolerances for your web, preventing costly downtime for repair. Use LRD outputs to steer your web back on track when it wanders.
