Heavy sections

The given conditions in production lines for heavy sections make special demands on contour measurement. Bars with section dimensions of more than one meter require a correspondingly large measuring window. Despite the intense heat the mechanical stability of the sensor arrangement has to be guaranteed.

TBK measurement systems offer the advantage that even in harsh conditions precise measurement results are achieved. The necessary size of the measurement window can only be realized by special frame designs and an appropriate number of sensors with high laser power (up to 500 mW).

Specific capability

  • Software and measurement system can be individually customized to production conditions
  • High laser power
  • Stable measurement despite the high heat
  • Savings in time and cost through optimization of production
  • Many years of experience

  • High frame stability
  • 8-sensor measurement 
  • Optional non-contact speed measurement
