The slab width and profile measuring system named LaseSPM consists of two 2D triangulation laser scanners which are mounted on both sides of the roller table.
How it works
This measuring system gauges the long sides of the slabs. By knowing the distance of both systems to each other and of the current measuring operation, the slab width and profile can be calculated – the whole evaluation takes place on a industrial PC.
The slabs even can move diagonally through the measurement system, because the software compensates misalignments automatically. In addition the shape (wedge and saber shape) of slabs can also be determined. In this application the triangulation scanners of our LASE 2000T-Series are used which can also measure hot slabs highly accurate to the millimetre.
