How to Use Our Sizing Calculator

  1. Reed Space (inches):
    • Enter the measurement of the Reed Space in inches into the first input field.
  2. Number of Reed Stripes:
    • Enter the total number of Reed Stripes into the second input field.
  3. Dents per Reed Stripe:
    • Enter the number of Dents per Reed Stripe into the third input field.
  4. Click “Calculate”:
    • After entering the values in the input fields, click the “Calculate” button.
  5. View Results:
    • The calculated results will be displayed below the button.
      • The “Beam Width” is the result of adding 20 mm to the Reed Space.
      • The “Approximate Number of Dents Used” is calculated by multiplying the Number of Reed Stripes by the Dents per Reed Stripe.
  6. Repeat as Needed:
    • You can repeat the process by entering new values and clicking the “Calculate” button again.

The calculator provides a quick way to estimate the Beam Width and the Approximate Number of Dents Used based on the given formula. Ensure that you enter valid numerical values in the input fields for accurate calculations.
