Process Lines: Thickness Gauges

Non-Contact Strip Measurement That Has Unparalleled Accuracy

Responding to market demand for more affordable, non-contact x-ray gauges that measure strip thickness, IMS developed the XR Gauge line. These precise, reliable and intelligent measuring systems are manufactured at our North American headquarters near Pittsburgh.

The XR Gauge now features integrated laser strip measurement. The Gauge’s laser speed sensor has a measurement accuracy of <0.05% is easy to handle for preventive maintenance and features an air wipe & protective window to prevent contamination by dirt.

XR Gauges can significantly improve productivity and quality in the full range of operations that service centers perform, including:

  • Pickling
  • Cold Rolling
  • Cutting-to-Length
  • Slitting
  • Tension Leveling
