Thickness measurement in strip systems

In strip systems such as longitudinal and cut-to-length slitting shears, the advantages of C-frame and O-frame shaped measurement systems of the thicknessCONTROL 820x and 920x series become particularly clear. The high lateral resolution of discrete laser lines enables both thickness measurement and width detection. Also in grinding and milling lines, these systems offer high precision measurements on highly polished surfaces.

Features
  • Geometrical measurements without effects caused by material
  • Fully automatic calibration
  • Recognition and compensation of tilting
  • High lateral resolution enables combined thickness and width measurement
  • Detection of individual strips in longitudinal slitting shears
  • Comprehensive analysis software with numerous graphs for cross-sections, longitudinal profiles, SPC analysis and false-colour representation
  • Unlike the C-frame, the O-frame requires hardly any space beside the strip system

Applications

AMAG - Cut-to-length shears

System type:

O-frame thicknessCONTROL MTS 8201.LLT

Installation situation:

O-frame integrated at the end of a cut-to-length line

Material:

  • Width: 800mm up to 2200mm
  • Thickness: 1.0mm to 9.0mm
  • Material temperature: < 35°C

Measurement:

The cross-section of each product is measured for quality assurance purposes.

AMAG - Longitudinal slitting shears

System type:

O-frame thicknessCONTROL MTS 8201.LLT

Installation situation:

The O-frame is integrated in longitudinal slitting shears before the slitting unit.

Material:

  • Width: 850mm up to 1900mm
  • Thickness: 0.2mm to 2.0mm
  • Material temperature: < 35°C

Measurement:

The system measures the cross-section over the total width, recognising the edge position and adapting the traversing position according to floating strip movements and changing widths.
