Cold mills / Processing lines

Thickness measurement for control and quality inspection is at many positions and so is an important element in the process landscape of cold rolling mills. Common places of application for systems for detecting the center thickness or the cross-profile are strip entry or exit of pickling lines with tandem mills, reversing mills as well as finishing lines.

Based on confocal sensor technology or laser line triangulation, Micro-Epsilon offers high-precision thickness measuring systems with the thicknessCONTROL MTS 8201/8202 series, which operate with high precision in the submicrometer range.

In processing lines, such as for tinning, hot-dip galvanizing or painting, thickness measuring systems are used at many points to ensure that the high demands on the product as well as on efficiency are met. Due to the wide portfolio of sensor technologies with which the thicknessCONTROL systems are available, high precision can be achieved for a wide variety of surfaces. For further measurement tasks in the area of process lines, Micro-Epsilon offers infrared temperature sensors and displacement sensors.

  • Flexible portfolio with O- and C-frames
  • O-frames for large widths with patented temperature compensation
  • High traversing speeds up to 64 m/min for dynamic cross profile measurements
  • Confocal technology with accuracies up to +/-0.3 µm
  • Material- / and alloy-independent fully automatic calibration and measurement
