Cold Mills: Width Gauges

Fast, Accurate Measurements of Distances Across Strip

IMS optical measuring systems are compact and allow for fast, complete measurements of product geometry. The company’s width gauges are ideal for production on a wide range of lines, including:

  • Pickling
  • Galvanizing
  • Cold Rolling
  • Inspection & Re-Coiling
  • Coating
  • Slitting
  • Cut-to-Length

Depending upon the customer’s particular environment, a gauge’s optics, sensors and signal processing features can be customized based on:

  • Shapes & Sizes of Objects to be Measured
  • Distance of Objects from Sensors

Other functions include Hole Detection and Edge Defect Detection.

When it comes to width gauges, IMS has unmatched ability to design and produce superior measuring systems.


A Revolution in Strip Dimension Measurement


Using infrared light, the patented Camera Cluster Systems (CCS) Gauge sets the industry standard for measuring strip width in cold processing environments and offers options for evaluating edge crack, hole/pinhole size and strip contour. Key features and benefits are:

  • Low Maintenance
  • Long Operating Life
  • No Moving Parts
  • Highly Accurate
  • Compact & Lightweight
  • Monitors for Dirt
  • Unaffected by Ambient Light

The CCS Gauge is another measuring solution from IMS that delivers outstanding precision and excellent value.
