Process Lines: Flatness Gauges

The Industry Leader in Process Line Gauges

IMS-Camera Cluster Systems (CCS) Flatness Gauges are affordable, easy-to-use and offer a degree of accuracy not found in other flatness measuring systems used on a variety of process lines, including:

  • Galvanizing
  • Pickling
  • Cutting-to-Length
  • Slitting
  • Tension Leveling

As customers require increasingly tight tolerances, IMC-CCS Flatness Gauges can add significant value to your operations by helping you maximize the acceptance rate of materials processed.

IMS Camera Cluster System

Key features and benefits of IMS-CCS Gauges are:

  • Highly Accurate, Real-Time Monitoring
  • Takes Precise Reads of All Surfaces (from matte to glossy)
  • Ideal for High-Speed Processing Lines (Cut-to-Length, Coating)
  • Provides High-Resolution Images of Strip Cross-Direction
  • Reduces Process Disruptions, Equipment Damage & Scrap
  • Compact & Lightweight
  • Easy to Install
  • Compatible with MEVInet-Q Quality Data Management System

How the IMS-CCS Flatness Gauge Works

This optical measuring system uses innovative camera cluster technology, including

  • 16 cameras per each 300mm (1 ft.) segment are added proportional to strip width
  • Lines imaged using matrix cameras
  • Intelligent camera clusters’ high performance power allows real-time data image processing to detect the smallest buckles & waves, especially on or near the material’s edge
  • Real-time data generate topographical information allowing engineers and others to judge product surface quality and determine whether strip meets customer specifications
