System Overview

For decades the Polish company Stalprodukt S.A. is a leading manufacturer and exporter of highly processed steel products like grain-oriented electrical steels and cold formed sheets and strips.

The system is applied to measure flat steel strips from 0.15 up to 3.20 mm. As a part of the revamp, several components of the existing gauges will be reused, like the radiation heads and the existing isotope sources – type Am241. The scope of supply contains components of the F2500 technology for thickness measurement. New detectors, cabling, electronics and evaluation unit will be delivered. The existing C-frames are retained and their control is integrated into the new electronics.

Complex adaptations are not required based on the integration of the existing interfaces of the mill automation into the new measuring system. The double-channel gauge was set into operation quickly.

Based on the modular system components MESACON® provides affordable solutions for revamping, also for existing foreign measurement systems.
