Measuring system for thickness and width measurements of metal strips
thicknessCONTROL MWS 8201.LLT combines thickness and width measurements in one O-frame system equipped with three laser line sensors. Two sensors are integrated in the upper belt and one sensor in the lower belt. While the sensors continuously detect the thickness profile while being traversed, the width is always measured when both sensors are positioned in the upper belt on one edge. This system architecture is suitable for monitoring and process optimisation of slitting lines, as the thickness and width can be continuously monitored and documented for each individual ring. The third laser scanner is moved independently of the two scanners for thickness measurement and can measure the exact width of individual rings in slitting lines.
