Thickness measurement of slabs during rough rolling

In order to monitor the slab thickness during the first rolling processes, laser distance sensors are used which measure from above onto the rolled material. Due to the high temperatures, steam and emulsions, measurement from a long distance is required, for which optoNCDT ILR2250 laser distance sensors are used. The sensors determine the thickness from the difference between the rolling mill and the slab on top.
