Measuring systemes for the metals industries

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.
