MESACON® Messelektronik GmbH Dresden received an order from Romanian manufacturer of electrical steel ERDEMIR Romania to supply three layer coating thickness gauges in order to optimize the overall process of the insulation coating process. The system was successfully tested and will be delivered end of the year. The customer already uses successful MESACON® thickness measurement technology in a four-high rolling mill for more than 10 years.

Laminated cores based on electrical steel (silicon steel) are used for transformers or rotors and stators of electrical motors. The base material of the cores is coated with an insulation varnish to increase the electrical resistance, the eddy current resistance and also to protect them against corrosion. The coating process is done in a continuous process before cutting and punching of the single parts of the core. The thickness of the insulation layer is very important for the quality of the core. In the past e.g. paper was used which results in a bad stacking factor and limited the maximum temperature of the core. Nowadays, mainly coatings related to the AISI classes C3, C5 and C6 are used. The benefits of any manual or automatic coating process control highly depend on the measurement accuracy of the layer thickness gauge. The paper concentrates on information about the MESACON´s F2800 layer thickness measurement system, improvement of customers coating process, benefits and customers experience.

The company PolymerTechnik Ortrand GmbH (PTO) invests into the expansion of their production capacities to manufacture canvas coated with elastomers. The end-product has multi-functional applications, e.g. as bellow material for articulated busses, working clothes in the meat production or also as membranes in the automotive industry. At present time, several measuring systems from MESACON Messelektronik are used for production monitoring and quality control. Recently PTO ordered another F2500 measuring system to provide a basis weight measurement for a new production line.

To meet the high quality requirements, PTO relies for decades on the radiometric measuring technology of MESACON Messelektronik. The measurement of the basis weight for determination of the material thickness is done contact-free during production and continuously across the whole width in length and cross direction.

ThyssenKrupp Electrical Steel India Private Limted a wholly owned subsidairy of Thyssen Krupp Steel, Duisburg Germany, was formed in September 2000.

To optimize the entire process of its coating plant ThysseKrupp Electrical Steel decided to order three specialized coating gauges from Mesacon Messelektronik Dresden GmbH – with adaptation to measure organic and inorganic layers down to 0.5 microns. The F2800 coating gauges are based on the beta backscattering effect with isotope source and ionization chamber. Read the rest of this entry »

In the beginning of December 2009 the layer thickness measurement system F 2800 was handed over to the Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Work. The order dealt with by Mesacon Messelektronik GmbH Dresden included drawing up client-specific plans of the gauge and manufacturing it.

The measurement system started its operation successfully at the coating plant. It measures Primer -and Finisher – Thickness on both sides of polymer coated strips. The coating plant was delivered by Fata Hunter.

After a continuously growing success during the past years, MESACON has accomplished one of its biggest orders in June this year. Already in spring 2008, the company prevailed successfully against strong competitors and received an order from the OEM world market leader SMS-Siemag to deliver 17 gauges for the largest enterprise of the Russian steel sector – Magnitorsk Iron and Steel Work.

Since 1956 and today more than 11 years under the name of MESACON, the company produces industrial-suited isotope and x-ray gauges made in Germany to measure strip, plate and layer thickness in hot rolling, cold rolling and subsequent processing lines. Despite a current decrease of investment activities on the global market, MESACON could deliver the systems in time last month. Read the rest of this entry »
