Strip Processing Line

Get the Highest Gauging Performance for Your Process Line

The strip processing line often represents the last point in the process where product undergoes ultimate treatment and the coil is measured for final length prior to final shipment. Accurate length and speed measurements are important at this stage of manufacture.

At steel plants, the LaserSpeed® Pro non-contact length and speed gauge is used to precisely control the strip processing speed, coil length and applicable slitting operation. Length and speed measurements are performed with +/-0.03% accuracy and +/-0.02% repeatability.

The LaserSpeed Pro gauge offers manufacturers significant advantages over mechanical contact encoders which are subject to slippage and debris buildup on the rotating measurement wheel, causing measurement inaccuracies. These devices also experience mechanical failure and require operators to perform routine calibration, maintenance and production line adjustments - resulting in costly downtime.

The LaserSpeed Pro gauge is a direct replacement for contact encoders and can be easily integrated into your process to drive product quality control.
