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 thicknessCONTROL 820x und 920x measurement systems become particularly clear. The high lateral resolution of discrete laser lines enables both thickness measurements and width detection. Also in grinding and milling lines, these systems offer high precision measurements on highly polished surfaces.

Special features

  • Geometrical measurements without effects caused by material
  • Fully automatic calibration
  • Recognition and compensation of tilting
  • High lateral resolution enables combined thickness and width measurements
  • 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 very little space beside the strip system
Caractéristiques
  • Geometrische Messung ohne Einfluss des Materials
  • Vollautomatische Kalibrierung
  • Erkennung und Kompensation von Verkippung
  • Hohe laterale Auflösung ermöglicht kombinierte Dicken- und Breitenmessung
  • Detektion der einzelnen Bänder in Längsteilscheren
  • Umfangreiche Analyse-Software mit zahlreichen Diagrammen für Querprofile, Längsprofile, SPC-Analyse und Fehlfarben-Darstellung
  • O-Rahmenausführung benötigt im Gegensatz zum C-Rahmen kaum Platz neben der Bandanlage

Applications

BBV - 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: max. 1600mm
  • Thickness: 1mm up to 12mm
  • 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 movements of the floating strip and changing widths.

Böhler Uddeholm - Grinding line

System type:

C-frame thicknessCONTROL MTS 8202.LLT

Installation situation:

The C-frame is behind the grinding unit.

Material:

  • Width: 40mm up to 650mm
  • Thickness: 0.5mm to 5.5mm
  • Material temperature: < 50°C

Measurement:

The system measures the centre thickness over the total length of the product. An interface transmits the measurement data to the grinding machine in order to control material removal.

Rudolf Flender GmbH - Longitudinal slitting shears

System type:

O-frame thicknessCONTROL MTS 8201.LLT

Installation situation:

The O-frame is integrated after the cutter spindle

Material:

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

Measurement:

The system detects cross-section, thickness profile and longitudinal profile of each individual ring.
