Micro-Epsilon announces thicknessCONTROL MTS 820x and MTS 920x thickness measuring systems

February 3, 2020 - The thicknessCONTROL MTS 820x and MTS 920x thickness measuring systems from Micro-Epsilon offer a solution for measurement tasks in hot rolling mills. They enable measurements on thick and thin materials.

The material thickness decreases during the rolling process and so needs to be monitored. In this respect, high requirements are placed on the measurement technology used, which must not only measure thick, but also thin materials with consistent precision.

The thicknessCONTROL MTS 820x and MTS 920x thickness measuring systems from Micro-Epsilon offer an application solution. Their technology enables measurements on both thick and thin materials. Furthermore, they are insensitive to harsh industrial environments, heat and vapors that occur while emulsions are applied. The sensors are equipped with a cooling unit that enables them to perform thermally stable measurements. In addition, hot surfaces require a large measuring range so that the sensors can be placed at a safe distance from the object.

The thickness measuring systems operate using special laser line scanners. These are integrated in the upper beams of the O- and C-frames and have two sequential measuring ranges. Two lenses and two matrices in the scanner divide the measuring range into two sections. This is how the thickness measuring systems operate in different accuracy ranges.
