(Booth 930) NDC Technologies will be debuting the LaserSpeed® Pro non-contact length and speed gauge and IG710e/SR710e coating sensors for metals processes. These high-performance gauges significantly improve process control across a wide range of mill applications and deliver production savings for quality-conscious manufacturers.
Non-Contact Length & Speed Measurements
The LaserSpeed® Pro gauge integrates easily into production networks providing the real-time data exchanges and tight processing efficiencies that today’s metals manufacturers need to deliver true product quality. LaserSpeed Pro delivers the highest accuracy in the industry (better than +/-0.03%) and the widest measurement depth of field for the full velocity range. This gauge can measure forward and reverse directions and down to true zero speed (product at standstill). It is an ideal replacement for mechanical contact encoders that are prone to a variety of measurement errors and high maintenance costs. Ethernet connectivity options support ModBus TCP, Ethernet/IP, Profinet IO and Profibus DP for improved operational control. Heavy-duty enclosures are available to protect the gauge in hot, hostile environments.
LaserSpeed is proven in numerous mill applications including continuous slab, billet and bloom casters; cutting control; elongation control in temper and skin pass mills; gauge control in hot and cold rolling mills; and other applications. There are over 8,000 LaserSpeed gauges installed worldwide.
On-Line Coating Measurements for Passivation and Other Processes
Engineered for a wide range of metal coating processes, the IG710e and SR710e near infrared gauges effectively measure a variety of coatings on metal coils in real-time. The IG710e provides highly accurate, versatile and reliable coating weight and coating thickness measurements, while the SR710e delivers the highest precision and performance for measuring thin, high-value coatings.
