The IMS-CCS Flatness Gauge offers you a degree of accuracy not found in other flatness measuring systems. As your customers require increasingly tight tolerances, this gauge helps you to maximize the acceptance rate of strip, sheet, and plate processed on galvanizing, pickling, cutting-to-length, slitting, and tension leveling lines in service centres and cold mills.
It contains 50 cameras per 1,000 mm of inspection length and a laser line unit. The source head projects multiple laser lines across the strip width and the lines are imaged using matrix cameras. These intelligent camera clusters provide superior data image processing with a high sampling rate, no matter on matte or glossy surfaces. You get the topographical and flatness data displayed on an HMI device for superior monitoring and control. Even with limited installation space, the compact simplified design and pre-calibration shorten the installation and commissioning time to your advantage. The IMS-CCS Flatness Gauges are now more powerful and easier to install than ever!
50 cameras per 1m space
200 measuring zones per meter strip width
Sampling rate of 1 kHz
are the guarantee for a high-resolution measurement.
Co-Development by ANDRITZ Herr-Voss Stamco Inc. and IMS Messsysteme GmbH
To optimise leveling results, reduce scrap, and improve the quality of processed material, we cooperated with ANDRITZ Herr-Voss Stamco Inc. and developed Level Vision™, “a flatness measuring system with closed loop leveler control that uses advanced optical and laser technology.“ We are fortunate to have co-developed this unique project with ANDRITZ and are looking forward to collaborations in the future.
»[W]e chose IMS for their innovative solutions and the technical expertise of their staff. Their use of modern technology and extensive flatness measuring experience combined with ANDRITZ Herr-Voss Stamco’s portfolio of levelers has resulted in a product that provides reliable measuring systems and control which makes our customers more competitive.«
