LinkedIn +

FACTS has launched its LTM thickness measurement system, the latest in its broad portfolio of web thickness measurement systems, at Tire Technology Expo.

The LTM is said to accurately measure both steel cord and textile calendered fabric, as well as innerliner. Its post-calender scanner provides closed-loop thickness control and can be used alone or in conjunction with FACTS’ On Cal-3 on-calender gauges to provide the optimum control response and accuracy.

The company’s SME scanning thickness profile measurement system, along with the On Cal-3 and LE fixed-point thickness measurement gauges, are also being showcased. FACTS also has a full line of calendering peripherals such as automatic mill knives, servo trimming systems and servo-controlled low-profile bubble piercers.

Tire Technology Expo runs until Thursday, February 18 in halls 19 & 20 at the Deutsche Messe, Hannover, Germany. For more information or to register for a free exhibition pass, go to
