Thickness measurement systems for complex applications
The IPC-based measurement systems of the thicknessCONTROL 820x series are equipped with powerful signal processing software. The systems are largely based on discrete laser line technology and so are suitable for complex applications. The systems are available in C-frame or O-frame-configurations. Accessories for harsh environments such as pneumatic protection devices for lenses, cooling packages for switching cabinets and sensor technology complete the product range.

Proven protection and cleaning concepts for harsh ambient conditions
Multi-touch capability, gesture-controlled analysis and control software
Measurement of profile characteristics (with LLT sensor technology)
Patented compensation of parasitic, thermal effects
The MTS 8202.T is equipped with laser triangulation sensors that ensure material-independent measurements. During the production process, the laser beams of both sensors are optimally adjusted using a specially developed optoelectronic tool that offers the highest precision. Due to its high measuring rate, the system is ideal for monitoring highly dynamic processes. Automatic inline calibration ensures that measurements are not influenced by temperature.
The MTS 8202.LLT is equipped with laser triangulation scanners which means measurements are independent of the surface properties of the target material. Scaling or mirror effects of the metal surface are therefore absorbed. Furthermore, compared to point sensors, the system offers higher accuracy and a larger mouth width. Automatic inline calibration ensures that measurements are unaffected by temperature changes. The measurement line is arranged vertically to the material flow, enabling the system to cope with lateral strip tilting.
The MTS 8201.LLT is equipped with laser triangulation scanners which means measurements are unaffected by the surface properties of the target material. Scaling or mirror effects of the metal surface are therefore absorbed. Furthermore, compared to point sensors, the system offers higher accuracy and a larger mouth width. The O-frame shaped mechanical system provides a temperature-compensated frame that compensates for any thermal changes of the measurement frame using additional sensor technology. The measurement line is arranged vertically to the material flow, enabling the system to cope with any lateral strip tilting.
The operating principle of the thicknessCONTROL MWS 8203.LLT system is based on laser line triangulation scanners (i.e. profile sensor technology) that provide extremely high lateral resolution and therefore the required precision can be achieved. The highly dynamic positioning of two profile sensors at the edges of the strip to be measured enables high precision width measurements. These sensors measure the width synchronously using the distance measurement between both sensor positions. In the case of large widths, thermal expansion plays an important role and is compensated for by using an innovative concept that prevents the precision of the measuring systems being impaired by the width of the material to be measured. The 2D profile sensor not only recognizes the strip edge, but also knows the height information, enabling the sensor to account for possible tilting of the metal strip.
Accuracy ± 20µm
Working in combination with the thicknessCONTROL MTS 8201.LLT thickness measurement system, the upper thickness sensor can also be applied as a width sensor.
