During this year’s EuroBlech in Hannover we present our large product range at booth D34 in Hall 15. Our solutions reach from the start of the production checking round knives over their slit strip measurement to checking the camber of either finished strips or inline.

Keeping an eye on the knife’s edge

The knife’s edge is observed during a full turn by a linescan camera and a laser sensor regarding both abrasion and cracks. The fixture unit of the imess S25 prevents vibrating movement to ensure constant results. The operator receives accurate results after only a few seconds.

Fast and secure production in slitting lines

Furthermore, the operator can rely on imess during the next production step. After the sheets have been cut into strips by the round knives, the imess SW controls their width inline. Therefore, a traversing camera moves over the belt and records the edges of each strip. Reaching into the system is not necessary anymore, increasing work safety. Moreover, the profitabilty is increased by decreased setup times. During the exhibition the compact SW-C system with a measurement range of 600 mm is presented. The camera is attached to a C-frame and moves across the slitted coil.

Detect and document camber

The subsequent quality control of the cut strip can be conducted with the digital camber measurement unit SMP. The entire product series SMP can be seen and tested at the imess booth. These systems check the straightness of the edge of strips and show the result instantly on a display. The systems are easy to use with two calibrated stops to place the sheet.
