Steel Gauge Thickness and Coating Weight Measurement Applications

Maximize production of quality steel

Steel is used in every aspect of our lives, from the buildings we live in, the cars we drive, to the containers that hold and transport our food. With its strength and flexibility, it is the ideal material for so many industrial and consumer applications. As steel is rolled from plate to coil and coil to sheet, operational efficiency depends on quality thickness and coating weight measurements. With over 65 years of experience, we understand the unique aspects of steel production lines and deliver robust steel thickness measurement systems that deliver. 

Steel thickness and coating weight measurement gauges

Thermo Scientific non-contact thickness gauges for hot strip mills provide reliable, repeatable process control data to identify operating issues, ensure product uniformity, and increase output.

Thermo Scientific thickness gauges for hot plate lines optimize the mill process with extremely high measurement accuracy at high speed, low noise, and with excellent cross-profile resolution—making them ideal for applications such as bridges, wind turbine towers, and ships.

Thermo Scientific coating weight gauges provide fast, accurate, non-contact coating weight measurement of metal coatings applied to flat sheet products, helping to ensure coating uniformity, product quality and raw materials savings.

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.
