The non-contact measurement of speed and length device VLM has been an integral part of the ASTECH product portfolio for the last decades. The success of the sensor is mainly due to its steady development and expansion.
The new VLM500E allows measurements at an increased distance of 330 mm with a working range of 60 mm. Thus, the proven and reliable product can be used even more efficient in demanding applications in the steel and aluminum industries, as well as in hot areas. All other features of the VLM series can be found in the VLM500E as well. With this new development, ASTECH meets the special needs and demands of the market. In this regard, the close and deep customer relationship played an important role. As a result of this, ASTECH was able to identify the desire for an extended working distance premature. Whereby, a fast realization was achieved and ASTECH is now even more able to provide high quality products and customer support.
Furthermore ASTECH announces that two members of the VLM500 series (VLM500A and VLM500L) have been optimized regarding their working range which is now 20 mm.
