Beta LaserMike Receives Ultrasonic Snap Technology Patent

Published: Sunday, March 7, 2004 - 23:00

Beta LaserMike, a manufacturer of precision measurement and control systems, has received a patent for its Snap Technology software contained within the UltraScan DSP ultrasonic wall thickness measurement system.

Used by manufacturers of extruded plastic pipe, tube and cable products, the UltraScan measurement system provides measurement and control of minimum wall thickness. Previous incarnations of the testing system required complicated setup for each product. Snap Technology allows users to begin their extrusion line and immediately measure a product’s wall thickness. The UltraScan DSP automatically finds the product and begins to measure immediately, requiring only a simple size calibration.

"This patent represents Beta LaserMike’s continued commitment to providing flexible solutions to our customers with ever-changing needs," says Ken Wright, marketing director. "The UltraScan wall thickness system now provides the ease of use and exceptional accuracy associated with our AccuScan laser diameter gages."
