Plate Mills: Slab Dimension Gauges

A Solid Solution for Gauging Slab Dimensions

IMS Outline Dimensions Gauges are designed to measure the outer dimensions such as width, thickness and length of steel and aluminum plate with superior consistency. The gauges’ compact dimensions give them the flexibility to fit any production line.

Depending upon the customer’s particular requirements, more than one camera and laser may be required. The sensors (CCD cameras) and lasers are placed in special protective housings that are suitable for the environment in which they are operating. Cooling elements protect the sensors from excessively high temperatures, minimizing the probability of unplanned downtime.

Lighting arrangements, optics, sensors and signal processing are customized based on the shapes and sizes of objects to be measured and the objects’ distances from the sensors. Optics are available to meet a variety of distances between sensors and target objects.

Outline Dimensions Gauges may be supplemented by system components that measure temperature, length and speed.
