 One of the critical quality criteria for sheet, plate, and tube production is the compliance with the required dimensions for slabs, strips, plates, and tubes.

This material property must be guaranteed constantly throughout the complete production process – from continuous casting plant through hot and cold rolling mill and refining line to dressing and straightening line and inspection line.

We are able to offer optical measuring systems that measure and document the relevant parameters precisely and reliably even in extreme environmental conditions and constantly changing material position.

The optical measuring systems measure:

  • Quickly: The measurement is made online. The results are available immediately – the higher-level process control system can react immediately
  • Accurately: They measure every single product completely – the basis for comprehensive documentation and complete traceability.
  • Without physical contact: They measure from a safe distance without physical contact with the material.


The measurement is based on optical transmission.

The backlight unit uses infrared light and the light is monitored by the camera unit beam.

The light emitted by the backlight and leaked from the pinhole and/or edge crack of the sheet material will be detected by area scan cameras.


Applicable in processing lines and cold rolling mills

  • Width gauge
  • Edge crack detector
  • (Large) hole detector
  • Pinhole detector
  • All in one gauge

– Camera cluster and optical measuring systems are inextricable parts of different mills. So, Contact Us and we will provide you with the vast knowledge of pioneer manufacturers in this specific field.
