Wire and rod profile measurement in real time
A glowing hot wire is pulled through the rolling mill at about 120 meters per second during ongoing production. Speed, high temperatures and dirt are special challenges for a high-precision measuring system. Our solution is the CONTOUR CHECK WIRE. It is specially designed for the geometric measurement of wires, rods and rebar and, at 800 Hz, offers the optimum measuring rate for accurate data acquisition. In the uniaxial version, you can check the diameter; in the two- to three-axis version, the ovality can also be determined. The small dimensions and light weight allow a quick and easy integration of the CONTOUR CHECK WIRE into the existing line.
SMART CORE BASIC Software
Our software clearly presents the measurement results in real time and can be easily integrated into the existing IT structure.
