High-Accuracy, Non-Contact Laser Gauging Offers Many Accuracy Advantages Over Contact Methods
Aluminum and Steel mills mills are harsh environments for measurement devices used to control processing operations. Mechanical contact encoders have difficulty measuring the length and speed of hot materials with any degree of accuracy due to the extreme temperatures and slag-scale accumulation on the product’s surface. These mechanical systems are subject to slippage and debris buildup on the rotating measurement wheel, causing measurement inaccuracies. They also experience mechanical failure and require operators to perform routine calibration, maintenance and production line adjustments.
NDC's LaserSpeed® Pro gauge eliminates the measurement errors associated mechanical contact encoders because it uses a unique, laser-based measurement technique that does not contact the product. As a result, you realize a number of significant production benefits and savings.
