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.
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
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.
