Got ISO 9001 Equipment Calibration Requirements?

Posted by Maureen Redmond on Apr 23, 2018 12:59:55 PM


If speed and length calibration and verification with NIST traceability are a vital part of your ISO program, you need the proper test equipment to validate and maintain the accuracy of your production and process monitoring equipment.


A Portable Measuring Solution

At Izumi International, we produce feed rollers, nip rollers, pinch rollers, stretch rollers and driven winding systems designed to maintain a constant driving speed on fibers or web materials.  To calibrate our equipment, we built a portable calibration tool to quickly and accurately measure product length and the line/surface speed of rollers, webs, belts and product.  We realized this tool would also benefit our customers Quality and Maintenance groups that need to validate machine Line Speed/ Length displays or to troubleshoot and maintain their equipment. 

The PLSC-1000 portable counter provides a NIST traceable speed/length calibration system designed to be easily moved around and mounted to production equipment for test, calibration and verification of speeds and lengths shown on the production equipment displays. 

PLCS-1000 with Dual Wheel Encoder and Magnetic Mounting Stand

Technical Features

The standard PLCS-1000 is supplied with one dual wheel encoder, magnetic encoder mounting stand, remote I/O interface plug and NIST Calibration Certificate.

Some of the built-in Features of the PLSC-1000 include:

  • 4.5” Color touchscreen operator interface
  • Storage in the PLCS-1000 base for encoder, mount and cables
  • Built in Carry handle
  • Dual 1 foot circumference encoder wheels
  • Standard/Metric Units selectable from the operator screen
  • Simple test setup and display selection from the touchscreen
  • Ready to measure differential speeds between two rollers (Optional second encoder required for this function)
  • User defined Over/Under Speed limits with Alarm Light indication and relay outputs
  • User programmed Length Reached function with Alarm Light indication and relay output
  • User I/O Plug provided with screw terminals for field connections
  • Can measure speeds of 600 meters/minute to a few millimeters/hour
  • High accuracy calibration of speeds/lengths up to +/- 0.01%.

Optional Accessories

  • Single or dual wheel encoders as needed to meet specific speed or count ranges
  • Encoder wheels can be supplied with different cover materials and diameters
  • Optical (non-contact) sensors for when wheeled encoders are not preferred.
  • Additional encoder mounting stands and brackets
  • Custom systems or programming for unique measuring applications
