Camera Cluster System
Optical measuring systems are used in production lines for example from pickling lines over rolling mills and coating lines to slitting and cut-to-length lines.
In your production lines, the IMS Systems measure strip width and detect centre and edge position. In slitting lines, for example the width of every single slit stripe,
IMS uses “camera cluster systems (CCS)” for all these measurement tasks. These systems comprise multiple high-speed intelligent cameras lined up one after the other in a cluster. By apposing multiple clusters, it is possible to measure foil, strip, and plate of varying widths.
Apart from the typical fields of application of CCD cameras, the cluster systems are also used in hot metal detectors.
»We have set new standards with the
Camera Cluster System.«
Product expert, IMS Messsysteme GmbH
The probably longest camera in the world detects edge cracks and holes and simultaneously measures strip width exactly.
CCS-Slit Strip Width
Hundreds of mini-cameras in use in the production of slit strip.
CCS camera with “microscopic eye” detects pinholes.
Mini-cameras and multiple laser pairs measure the flatness and levelness of flat products.
The end customers are given quality reports on every single sheet delivered, thus ensuring 100% quality assurance.
