Measuring System

The CCS sheet geometry measuring system is usually
installed between the shear and stacking system.

The measurement is based on optical reflection, in which the entire cut edge is ascertained. The measuring system is able to measure the length (L), width (W), diagonals (D1, D2), angles (A, B) and squareness (S) for every sheet.

Storage of the measurement results is, of course, an
integral part of the system.

– length
– width
– squareness
– parallelism

sheets with scrap-minimizing shapes such as trapezoid, rhombus and scroll

#IMS Expert

Dirk Reimertz,
Dipl. Engineer

…to the verifiability of flatness previously required, your best customer suddenly also needs the exact geometry of the plates to be delivered. Do you now lose the order or is there a possibility to retrofit a measuring system despite the cramped conditions? What advantage does this investment bring me, apart from the fact that it satisfies just this one customer?

Not only in slitting and cut-to-length lines, but also in pickling lines, recoiling lines and inspection lines, it is necessary to meet growing customer demands on product quality. These are challenges that I am confronted with every day and for which we at IMS have developed a product portfolio specially tailored to metal service centres.

We set new standards with our systems and reach new dimensions with our efficient, digital and durable measurement technology. The systems are designed precisely for your application, and with our Life Cycle Partnership you are always on the safe side.”
