Hot and Cold Rolling Processes in Steel Manufacturing
Ensure your products meet the most precise specifications
Produce quality steel products while maintaining output and efficiency with the help of our complete line of non-contact thickness gauges for hot- and cold-rolling mills that provide precise, real-time measurements during high-speed production of steel plate and sheet to help you meet the tightest tolerances while maximizing raw material use.
For zinc-coated steel sheet, our hot coating weight gauges provide fast feedback for coating control using well-established X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and our near-infrared (NIR) sensors assure uniform paint coverage.
Produce thinner, stronger steels with the Thermo Scientific SIPRO Simultaneous Profile Gauge. SIPRO is a high-speed, accurate dimensional measurement gauge that allows for in-bar correction of off-gauge product, resulting in raw materials savings and mill optimization. It provides 100% characterization of the material throughout the entire length of the product with the fastest profile update rate.
Ensure coating uniformity and product quality with fast, accurate non-contact coating weight measurement of metal coatings applied to flat sheet galvanized products. Thermo Scientific RM 310 EH Hot Coating Weight Gauges significantly improves coating weight control by reducing the dead time between the air knives and measurement, resulting in raw material savings and a reduction in scrap.
Increase productivity with highly accurate noncontact on-line measurements for every type of cold-mill application. The Thermo Scientific RM 210 CM Thickness Gauge allows customized sensor configuration for your metal strip application. Its low-noise analog output allows rolling to tighter tolerances, improving overall product quality.
