STRIP THICKNESS MEASUREMENT USING LASER TRIANGULATION
Two opposing sensors with a defined distance (A) each detect the distance to the surface (d1, d2).
Thickness is calculated by subtraction (D=A-d1-d2).
Short demonstration regarding thickness measurement of strip.Play
Continuous thickness measurement (profile) of strip
Two LAP thickness sensors CALIX XL are fixed on electrical driven linear moving units and be placed beside the roller table. The linear moving units move the sensors continuously across the half width of the passing strip and measure in that way a zigzag thickness profile across and along the strip.
A common PC control unit for both sensors will be used for data sampling and evaluation.
