This product line is the ideal solution for non-contact X-ray thickness gauging of flat products in cold rolling mills and processing lines of the steel and non-ferrous industries and in aluminum hot mills.
The X-ray sources continue the innovative concept of integrating X-ray tube, high voltage generation, emission control and the sample magazine in a robust stainless steel casing.
High resolution and fast detectors and a ruggedized C-frame complete the thickness gauge.
In the version for static centre-line measurement it provides the primary input signal for accurately controlling the rolling process. Alternatively the thickness gauge can be delivered with a scanning C-frame for cross profile measurement of the strip.
In its simplest configuration the thickness gauge consists of C-frame with X-ray source and detector and one operator station. Extended versions come with a visualization server for connecting several operator stations and for long term data archiving. For reversing mills and tandem lines up to five gauges are combined to a measurement system with common operation and line interfacing.
