Thickness measurement systems for harshest environments
thicknessCONTROL 920x thickness measurement systems are extremely robust in terms of their mechanical design and measurement technology. Due to the high data density, their discrete laser line technology enables high performance signal processing which provides stable measurements even on emulsions, steam and highly polished surfaces. The systems are designed as solid steel framed strcutures and are equipped with efficient cooling mechanisms, making them suitable for use in harsh environments. Furthermore, blue laser sensors can be used in order to measure on red-hot glowing materials.
Wide choice of different measuring ranges Measurement frame from steel for large widths
Proven protection and cleaning concepts for harsh ambient conditions
Multi-touch capability, gesture-controlled analysis and control software
Application-specific sensor technology (red or blue laser)
thicknessCONTROL MTS 9201.LLT is specifically designed for harshest environments such as aluminium hot rolling mill applications. These systems stand out due to their solid steel frame. The optical sensors are water-cooled in order to ensure a longer service life. The integrated, electronic components remain in the specified temperature range, as the frame is purged with cold air. Another special feature is the patented, fully automatic monitoring of the linearity in the ‘parked’ position using a certified calibration standard. In this way, not only are thermal effects on the mechanics of the measuring frame monitored but also the factors affecting the sensor electronics, which are corrected automatically using a patented linearisation process.
Optionally expandable with vertical linear axis for measuring range extension
