Until now, C-frames for radiometric measurements were heavy and ponderous, and the faster movement was an advantage of Laser thickness gauges. Those days are over! The new MESACON C-frame combines speed with stability and precision.

Aluminium C-frames with a linear unit are used for Laser thickness measurement and have been proven in that application. MESACON now makes this technology available for radiometric measurement by isotope or x-ray.

The biggest advantage lies in the weight reduction. A conventional carbon steel C-frame can easily weigh over one ton, and is therefore not easy to move. The much reduced weight of an aluminum construction makes a drive per linear unit available and possible speeds of over 500mm / s possible. A complete strip width scan in a slitting line can be realized within seconds!

The use of isotope or X-ray as a measurement method offers the advantage that no short term adjustments are necessary. The measurement results are completely independent of the mechanics, thermal changes or material surfaces.
