The measurement is independent of material and pass-line variations and will stay accurate, stable and reliable - year after year.
Strip width and position measurement
One of the most important parameters in modern rolling millsis the position of the strip. If this is not correctly measured, there is a great risk of rolling the strip under incorrect presumptions. This leads to poor flatness, especially at the edges, and to a final product of inferior quality or even strip breakage.
The Millmate Strip Scanner System – a system for continuous, contact-free measurement of edge position/off-center and strip width in cold rolling mills and process lines such as pickling, annealing and galvanizing lines.
Contrary to optical, camera based techniques, it is immune to such substances as oils, water and other coolants, as well as steam and dirt.
