With their extensive knowledge and experience, MESACON Messelektronik have stood for high-precision thickness measurement systems for over 60 years. A flexible and modern company, with worldwide agencies and the seal of quality “Made in Germany”.

The non-contact measuring systems are used for regulation in rolling mills, and for quality control of the material thickness of flat products in a wide variety of industries. In addition to the classic radiometric systems for the steel and aluminum processing industries, the portfolio also includes laser-optical measuring systems, with a wide range of possible applications.

During November 2021, a new MESACON laser multi-spot measuring system for quality control of material thickness became operational at a location just outside Leipzig, Germany. The joint venture between SCHULER and PORSCHE sets new standards in the field of smart component tracking.

Industry 4.0 – that is the philosophy in the new state-of-the-art Press Shop with upstream blanking line. Particular attention being paid to seamless quality assurance from coil to finished component. During runtime, the material thickness measured, together with other quality characteristics, such as the oil layer, surface roughness and material properties. These are all monitored and visualized on large dashboards, along with the line data, using a comprehensive track and trace solution from SCHULER.

The material thickness is determined during production using confocal chromatic laser distance measurement in three measuring tracks.

MESACON’s measuring systems open up a wide range of applications in the field of non-contact thickness measurement, and can provide the competitive advantage for manufacturing processes. In times of Industry 4.0, the requirements for the digitalisation of production data are increasing. Higher data densities lead to ever better process understanding, more efficient production and detailed documented quality.

MESACON’s more than 60 years of experience in the field of non-contact thickness measurement has also been incorporated into the product line of laser-optical measuring systems. The primary approach is always the simplicity of the system in the aspects of integration, handling and operation. The focus is always on system precision and performance to reliably achieve the measuring capability important in quality management, even with demanding measurement specifications.

The Laser optical thickness measurements based on laser triangulation is a widely used technology in the non-destructive monitoring of flat products.
The F5500 measuring system represents an interesting alternative to radiometric systems due to the rather simple and compact measurement setup, the independence on the chemical composition of the material to be measured, as well as the comparatively low acquisition costs and maintenance efforts. Furthermore, topics such as radiation protection and time consuming authorization issues became obsolete. However, what seems to be a simple and easy measurement solution at the first glance holds a number of challenging difficulties.

In times of increasing demands for quality controls from the automotive industry, more and more Steel-Service-Centers decides for radiometric thickness measuring systems from MESACON® Messelektronik. The readiness to invest in innovative technologies for product and process optimization, even in economic difficult times, testifies to the enormous competitive advantage for the Service-Centers, which pursue a consistent implementation of the zero-defect principle.

The MESACON® software, which has been specially developed for cutting and slitting lines, enables the operator to identify continuously the thickness deviations of each single strip during production. In combination with a separate strip width measuring system, MESACON provides the evidence for the quality assurance to produce within the tolerances.
