Multichannel Profile Measuring Systems for Cold Rolling Mills


IMS Multichannel Profile Measuring System for Cold Strip

  • Measuring principle: Radiometric
  • Measuring task: Thickness measurement, profile measurement
  • Field of application: Cold rolling mills
  • Production plant: Reversing stand, tandem mill, process lines
  • Measured good: Steel, aluminium, copper

Highest measuring accuracy as guarantee for maximum precision

By combining state-of-the-art x-ray technology and high-precision detectors, IMS multichannel measuring systems offer highest temporal and local resolution for continuous thickness profile measurement over the complete strip length.

Used for thickness measurement and profile measurement of steel, aluminium and copper, multichannel profile measuring systems find their application in reversing stands, tandem mills and process lines of cold rolling mills.

Thanks to high measuring accuracies and very small measuring time constants, the radiometric measuring method used provides comprehensive product data, whose feedback to the higher-level automation system leads to optimised product quality.

In other words, a measuring device as guarantee for maximum precision, reliability and quality, which, through its continuous measurements, offers the following quality criteria in the cold strip sector:

  • Strip thickness in the middle of the strip
  • Simultaneous recording of the thickness cross profile
  • Edge drop
  • Wedge and crown

Your challenges

  • Improvement in material quality
  • Quality assurance
  • Easier documentation through reports
  • Minimised risk of injury during manual measurement

Our solutions for you

  • Use of only one absorption curve
  • Continuous measurements without additional measuring range switching functions and associated range standardisations
  • No delays from thermal transient responses of the x-ray tubes because there is no change in the high voltage
  • Under constant conditions, x-ray tubes offer high lifetimes
  • Alloy compensations do not need to be adapted to changing energy ranges
