Width Measurement with radar
Versatile in use, also where other measurement techniques fail
Advantages of radar technology
Radar radiation is, in contrast to laser radiation or light, insensitive to steam and dust.
IMS has developed the first width measuring system based on radar technology and launched it successfully on to the market. The width measuring system with radar delivers accurate measurements under the harshest of environmental conditions – and that without requiring much maintenance.
The measuring system consists of two measuring units, each equipped with a sensor and a pair of antennas to generate, emit, and receive the radar radiation. The distance between the measuring system and strip edge is measured. With suitable calibration, the width of your material is then determined.
Due to the compact construction of the system, these width gauges can also be installed in the smallest of spaces. The measurement technique allows the components needed for measurement to be placed a relatively large distance away from the hot material.
