LASER MEASUREMENT FOR ALL METALS

For more than 30 years, LAP systems have been measuring dimensions of long and flat products in production lines. We manufacture laser based systems for non-contact measurement of position, width, thickness, diameter, contour and shape for the entire process chain, from continuous casting to the finished product. Careful assessment of customer requirements, from management to the operator level, of plant conditions and operating procedures, is essential to engineer and implement well thought-out solutions. Any project begins with the thorough understanding of customer needs.

RELIABLE IN HARSH ENVIRONMENTS

In the metal industries, measurement systems have to prove reliable every day under difficult operating conditions. Through decades of experience, our engineers understand these conditions and know how to protect measurement systems to keep them working. Outstanding sensor technology, mechanical stability, shock and dirt resistance, thermal insulation, cooling systems, and easy maintenance contribute to the overall performance of the systems.

 

MORE THAN JUST SENSORS

Specific needs of production processes and related production lines often require individual adaptation of a measurement system. Because of this we offer single source systems, from sensors through mechanics, electronics to software, and finally integration into the process. You are dealing with a single contact and clear responsibilities during the entire project. Close cooperation between LAP and their customers guarantees short installation cycles and high operator acceptance.

 

LEADING IN NEW TECHNOLOGIES

Quality demands on flat and long products are rising continually. Consequently, LAP is permanently refining and developing its systems. The RDMS profile gauge as an example is worldwide accepted to measure the true profile of long products. It‘s patented technology detects and measures all relevant shape defects precisely, namely three-lobed shapes and asymmetric fill. This patented technology provides reliable data for modern rolling technologies such as 3-roll stands.
