The Thermo Scientific™ product line of  noncontact thickness measurement gauges for cold rolling and process lines consists of:

Thermo Scientific Laser TX Optical Thickness Gauge

  • Laser triangulation measurement with sensors ideally suited for the measurement of the sheet thickness range
  • Completely insensitive to sheet composition and the sensor is safe, requiring no radiation registration or licensing
  • Standard design provides thickness monitoring for the entire length of a coil.
  • Use of laser based sensors completely eliminates the need for semi-annual regulatory inspections

Thermo Scientific RM 100 PL / RM 110 PL Strip Thickness Gauge

  • Sensors are housed in an industrial, heavy-duty C-frame for centerline measurement to provide reliable data.
  • Gamma-ray measuring heads measure the centerline thickness as well as the cross profile in the optional scanning mode.
  • X-ray measuring head operates with minimum maintenance in challenging environments.
  • High efficiency, ionization-chamber-based radiation detectors provide excellent measurement stability.

Thermo Scientific RM 200 PL and RM 200 CM Strip Thickness Gauge

  • Gamma-ray measuring heads measure centerline thickness as well as the cross profile in the optional scanning mode.
  • Designed to operate with minimal maintenance in demanding environments.
  • Available in dual configuration for reversing cold mill applications or processing lines with dual payoff reels.
  • RM 200 CM includes additional sealing and modified access panels for further protection against rolling fluids used in cold mill applications.

Thermo Scientific RM 302 ES Simultaneous Triple Spot Thickness Gauge

  • Simultaneous triple-spot measurements: a middle sensor obtains the thickness of the strip center while two outside sensors obtain edge thickness.
  • High efficiency detectors permit measurement resolution of less than 12mm in the crosswise direction.
  • Rugged C-frame with electric drive.

Thermo Scientific RM 210 CM Strip Thickness Gauge

  • Delivers noncontact on-line measurements for every type of cold-mill application.
  • Low-noise analog output allows rolling to tighter tolerances.
  • Can be used for manual, AGC or adaptive control of the mill.
  • Expandable architecture for two- or three-sensor C-frames per cabinet.
