Width gauges, large hole and edge crack detectors
Our optical measuring systems measure width and centreline deviation in your production lines (from pickling lines over rolling mills and coating lines to slitting and cut-to-length lines). In your slitting lines it is possible to measure the width of every single slit stripe. Optionally the systems are also able to detect and classify edge cracks and holes (min. Ø1mm).
A gauge basically consists of two components – a camera unit beam (receiver) and a backlight unit beam (transmitter). Both components are modular in construction. Depending on your requirements, the modules are lined up one next to the other or separated by spacer modules (bridge clusters).
Our solution for you:
High investment and maintenance costs for scanning camera systems
Measuring errors caused by vertical strip fluctuations, tilted position or the edge contour
Measuring errors caused by extraneous light
Failure of the measuring system caused by contamination
High maintenance costs caused by usage of fluorescent lamps
For stripe width gauges: Production stops in case of scanning systems, discontinuous width measurement
Multi camera systems (CCS) without moving parts require low maintenance
Multi camera systems (CCS) apply the stereoscopic effect for the compensation of vertical strip fluctuation
All LED-modules can be dimed separately, therefore influences from extraneous light can be compensated
Automatic contamination detection and warning
Long lifetime of LED-modules
Continuous measurement of the stripe width
