The most accurate, robust and reliable systems for your production line

The long experience in non-contact measurements in the steel and metallurgical field gained over the years has allowed us to develop extremely reliable and performing systems that can make the difference. All our modern systems are the natural consequence of their predecessors. Since the early 90s, when we first introduced open systems with user-frienly user interface based on Windows and Linux operating systems, our mission has been to continue to develop simple systems, with linear architecture and made up of commercial parts that are easily available on the market with software that was simple for both users and maintainers. Our sensors have always been the strength of our systems, for robustness and reliability. The current systems retain all the characteristics of the previous models, and they have been made better in terms of digital signal management and data exchange with sensors and peripherals. The strength of our systems is certainly high reliability, very low maintenance and extreme ease of use use and installation, mainly due to the minimization of wiring and interconnections. Each system is equipped with modern software tools that allow all the advanced features possible to date.
We have specific ready-made solutions for online and non-contact measurement on:

  • PLATE MILLS AND CASTING LINES

  • HOT ROLLING

  • HOT STRIP MILLS

  • TANDEM E REVERSING MILLS

  • Z-MILLS

  • METAL RIBBON

  • SLITTING / CUT TO LENGTH

  • PICKLING / RECOILING / SKIN-PASS

  • ELECTROLYTIC TINNING LINE


Cold Rolling thickness measurement and control (Tandem Mills, Temper o Reversible Mills)

A classic application of Advanced Automatic Gauge Control is to provide a very fast input (less than 2 ms) of the thickness deviation from a target set in a continuous rolling mill for steel. A classic example of advanced automatic control is the complete closed circuit with feedback or feedforward interaction with the rolling mill, on the Tandem V stands process line, which reduces the thickness of the steel strip from 5 mm to 0.7 mm with the tolerance of 0.1 microns at the last step. The thickness of the final product, as well as determining its conformity with respect to the request for use, has an important impact on the mechanical characteristics of the material itself. Our systems are able to automate different types of cold rolling plants, continuous or reversible in order to optimize their physical and chemical-physical characteristics.

Hot Rolling thickness measurement and control (HSM o Plate Mills).

AAGC finds its natural application on hot steel strip trains that require very high performance, accuracy and response speed, given the speed of the process. The control of the centerline takes place continuously, in order to guarantee the activation of the actuators over time as small as possible and therefore obtain an immediate thickness correction. All our systems are designed and applied for constant use, H24, in critical environments and with very severe environmental conditions and with very low maintenance, they guarantee extremely high MTBFs, given the operational difficulty of ordinary and extraordinary maintenance activities.


Hot Rolling - Centerline thickness control with AGC feeback

AAGC finds its natural application on hot steel strip trains that require very high performance, accuracy and response speed, given the speed of the process. The control of the center line takes place continuously, in order to guarantee the activation of the actuators over time as fast as possible and therefore obtain an immediate thickness correction. All our systems are designed and applied for constant use, H24, in critical environments and with very severe environmental conditions and with very low maintenance, they guarantee extremely high MTBFs, given the operational difficulty of ordinary and extraordinary maintenance activities.

Finishing lines(Pickling, Corrective, Eletrolytic)

The control of the thickness in the center line on the cold finishing lines is vital to be able to certify a product within certain imposed characteristics. In addition to process control, our systems find a natural application in control thickness in the finishing and reworking lines, whether pickling, corrective, electrolytic or coating lines.
