Contour Check

CONTOUR CHECK is an inline laser light sectioning measurement system that collects all dimensions of several profiles and is able to detect production failures during the rolling process. It consists of several laser light sectioning sensors mounted in a steel frame construction. The frame and the sensors are flushed with air to maintain thermal stability and a dust and dirt free environment. The data evaluation is done with the included RDMS CC Software. The whole system is designed to withstand harsh conditions with dust, dirt and humidity. It is able to work under mechanical and thermal influences that normally occur in rolling mills.
The purpose of CONTOUR CHECK is the control of dimensions and detection of rolling defects during the production process of long products. The measured data is visualised and rolling defects are reported with size and category to the user. Beside periodically occurring rolling defects also one time defects can be detected.
