More and more Steel Service Center decides for radiometric thickness measuring systems from MESACON® Messelektronik GmbH Dresden.
Especially cutting and slitting lines are equipped with thickness gauges for quality control of the incoming material.

The system measures in entry section of the line before cutting and slitting of the strip. The high developed MESACON software enables the operator to identify thickness deviations of each single strip during production and provides the evidence for the quality assurance to produce within the tolerances.

compact mechanic concept with hanging C-frame

MESACON® was commissioned by company Schäfer Werke to supply three further F3500 systems until middle of the year. Just now the customer has four MESACON gauges and the three new ones will be commissioned by the end of the year.

The supplied F3500 systems are based on the principle of X-ray transmission. The compact design is based on a hanging C-frame mechanism. The advantage to this concept is the low space requirement below the roller table. The hanging mechanics are mounted to a robust steel structure. The movement process is carried out via a linear unit with up to 500mm / s. The measurement will be realised scanning over the whole width of the material to be measured during production. The moving range can be adapted to customers’ requirements. The electric drive of the C-frame is assessable at the visualisation unit or for maintenance purposes at a control panel located close to the mechanic.

Innovative solutions designed by MESCON® already comply with the demands of tomorrow.
