CCS Flatness Gauge

Contactless measurement

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 centers and cold mills.

It contains 50 cameras per 1,000mm of inspection length and a laser line unit. The source head projects multiple laser lines across a strip’s 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 surface. 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 advanatge. The IMS-CCS Flatness Gauges are now more powerful and easier to install than ever before!

Your challenges:

Our solution for you:

Claims caused by imperfect flatness. Only by offline sampling.

High personnel efforts for offline sample measurements. Production stops.

Missing measuring systems and control systems at tension levelers

Limited installation space

Continuous online flatness measurements

Automatic monitoring and logging of the measuring results

Economic solutions available

The introduced solution requires small installation space
