Optimizing production and quality in long products rolling mills with laser gauges
The hot rolling of wires, rods and bars is a fast, complex and yet necessarily precise process. Human hands and eyes, or offline lab tests, are insufficient to find out about production problems. The results come too late, are not accurate enough, or they are obtained under dangerous circumstances. Fast, contactless laser sensors can bridge the gap in inline installed gauges and as handheld or mobile measurement tools.
