CONTOUR CHECK

Real-time laser profile measurement
for rolled long products

LAP CONTOUR CHECK

Wire, rod, bar, tubes - CONTOUR CHECK is THE solution for inline measurement of long products before, during or after rolling. Profiles may be round, square or hexagonal, glowing, hot or cold - CONTOUR CHECK measure relevant dimensions, detect changes in shape, rolling defects and surface defects. The system provides warnings if tolerances are exceeded so you can intervene before scrap is produced. Start-up times after product changes are reduced substantially by measuring from the first moment material comes through.

THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR YOUR ROLLING MILL

LAP CONTOUR CHECK provide all the information needed for fast and precise adjustment of rolling lines. Depending on model, they can measure rounds, rebar, flats, squares, hexagons, L-, U-, T-, H-shaped profiles or even rails. The patented TrueShape technology allows precise measurement of three-lobed or polygonal rounds, and of single-sided over- or underfill. Off-size conditions are immediately displayed and allow corrections during runtime of a billet. Elimination of sample cutting reduces the ramp-up time after size or product change. Precise determination of off-size lengths at head and tail allows crop-optimization, further increasing the yield.
