X-ray strip thickness and profile gauge

X-ray metal strip thickness and profile gauge is designed for contactless online measuring of metal strip thickness on rolling mills or processing lines.

C-frame

The principle is based on the measurement of the X-Ray beam attenuation.

Advantages:

  • Optimized low- energy source (longer life of X-ray tube)
  • Temperature dependence is compensated by the constant temperature regulation
    of the X-Ray source and detector
  • The design of the C-frame and slide can be customized to fit the customer needs
  • Across profile scanning

Features:

  • C-frame with ceramic X-ray tube and detector
  • Motorized slide
  • Chiller unit
  • Industrial PC with processing, visualisation and archiving software
