Metals Thickness and Coating Weight Measurement Applications

Deliver world-class quality plate, sheet and coils

Consistent delivery of world-class quality products in a commodity market provides the differentiation required to maintain and grow your metals business. Thermo Scientific metals thickness gauge tools and coating weight measurement gauges are custom built for your application. Our experienced engineers and service personnel understand the critical role gauge measurements play in the metals production process. 

Metals thickness, coating weight measurement and pinhole detection applications

We offer a portfolio of non-contact gauging systems for hot and cold steel rolling mills that provide precise, real-time measurements during high-speed production of steel plate and sheet, to help you produce quality products and meet the tightest tolerances, while maintaining output and efficiency.

Our non-contact gauging systems for hot and cold aluminum rolling mills provide accurate, robust and repeatable measurements during high-speed production of aluminum plate, sheet and foil, regardless of alloy and clad layer composition.

Thermo Scientific non-contact gauging systems for specialty metals rolling mills are custom built for their unique production environment to provide accurate and repeatable thickness measurements, helping you to produce high quality products while maximizing raw material use.

Thermo Scientific non-contact pinhole detectors verify the integrity of flat-sheet as it is being rolled and monitor for defects that could compromise the barrier between perishable goods and the outside environment.

This app illustrates the application of Thermo Fisher Scientific solutions across the Integrated Steel plant workflow, from raw material handling to coke plant, sinter plant, blast furnace, hot rolling, cold rolling, coil coating, and lab equipment. Find out how you can leverage these solutions to optimize your steel plant operations.
