Noncontact Thickness Gauges for Hot Plate Lines

Steel plates must be manufactured to precise thickness specifications for use in applications which require superior strength and wear resistance, such as bridges, wind turbine towers, and ships. Thermo Scientific™ Noncontact Thickness Gauges for Hot Plate Lines provide real-time measurements that meet the tightest dimensional tolerances of any steel plate application. When controlling plate thickness variation is a must, Thermo Scientific plate thickness gauges optimize the mill process with extremely high measurement accuracy at high speed, low noise and with excellent cross-profile resolution.

Thermo Scientific Noncontact Thickness Gauges for hot plate lines include the following products:

Thermo Scientific™ RM 200 EG Plate Thickness Gauge
  • Evaluates steel plate thickness, including alloy and temperature expansion correction, for fast automatic gauge control purposes.
  • Thickness cross profiles are available with a crossmachine C-frame scanning option.
  • Gamma-ray source with scintillation detector provides fast response and high effiency.
  • Best signal-to-noise ratio and 2-times better accuracy than conventional gauges which use ionization chambers.
  • High geometrical resolution of the measurement.
  • Space saving in-mill version includes source and detector, but is without C-frame.
