When it comes to the process of measuring the thickness of metal strips, systems based on the C-frame are the first choice. There are many systems that can reliably detect thickness but the ability to make stable measurements even during actual operating conditions separates the wheat from the chaff straightaway. The thicknessCONTROL MTS 8202 high-quality thickness measuring system is of modular C-frame construction and provides more than just stable measurement data. Equipped with an innovative calibration technology, and supporting a variety of physical measurement methods, it offers a unique range of solvable measurement tasks. Depending on requirements, the user can select between capacitive technology, confocal or triangulation sensors, or laser line triangulation. The latter offers significant advantages, particularly with the frequent problem of tilted and rippled test objects in the strip metal field. With its integrated correction procedure system developed by Micro-Epsilon, precise thickness measurement with µm-precision is possible for the first time, even when the target is tilted. Only this way can such measuring systems achieve the leap from the laboratory into industrial reality.
Even after years of service, the integrated calibration technology can prove the precision of the system at any time in less than a second, and it permits easy monitoring of the test equipment in the context of quality management.
Thanks to the modular design of the thicknessCONTROL MTS 8202 series, damaged sensors can be easily replaced at any time in a harsh industrial environment, without any need to take the whole system apart.
