Width, Hole, Edge crack Detection System

Width, Hole, Edge crack Detection System

The non-contact CCS width, hole, edge crack detection system is optimally suited for flexible use in many production lines.

From rolling to process and finishing lines, width, holes and edge cracks are detected reliably everywhere.

The measurement beams can be mounted easily on
existing plant components or integrated into the line with the help of customised frames.

With an optional software add-on, the system can also be extended to include edge crack and/or hole detection. The exact position of the defects is detected reliably both along the length and across the width of the material.

#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.”

CCS (16 cameras per cluster)

Typical working distance camera:

350 mm to 800 mm

Typical working distance backlight:

150 mm to 300 mm

Measuring dynamics

Sampling rate:

up to 28 kHz

Measuring accuracy for width measuring

Width accuracy:

± 0,1 mm (2 σ)*

* The measuring accuracy depends on the distance between the material and camera unit. The above specifications are valid at a maximum distance of up to 400 mm between the material and camera unit.

Measuring accuracy for hole & edge crack detection

Size of hole:

≥ 0.2 mm x 0.2 mm *

Size of edge crack:

≥ 1.0 mm x 1.0 mm

* The detectable hole size depends on the thickness and speed of the material. Exact details are specified on a system basis.
