Detect flashes and burrs before they affect your production negatively

Slabs, sheets or billets that are cut autogenously or mechanically in a cold or hot state often have a flash or burr after cutting. These can lead in the further course of production to unnecessary material rejects or even to cost-intensive damage to the rolls. Used for the burr detection on slabs, the IMS burr detection system is used in continuous casting plants.

The proven 3D inspection technology from IMS detects these critical surface irregularities reliably and saves not only time, but also follow-up costs through automated inspection of the material.

Of critical importance for the high measuring precision of the burr detection system is a precisely defined laser-camera geometry. For optimal stability of all measuring components, IMS uses specially developed lasers with even brightness distribution, stable line projection as well as straightness, which guarantee reliable measurement results.
