Efficient process management — inline and contactless
The achieved progress and the high speed of developments ensure that laser measuring technology is already revolutionizing inline inspection of geometric sizes today. Flatness, straightness, profile, thickness and width are typical inspection parameters, which are optically measured and hence contactlessly measured directly in the production flow - that is the key competence of nokra.
Our measuring systems inspect seamlessly and automatically in the production cycle. Contactless thickness gauges for strips and plates, or fully automatic flatness inspection systems can be used for the process controlling of quality steel or in the aluminium production. Camshaft inspection machines used in the automotive industry and contour measuring systems for the windshields of automobiles provide an insight into our product range. The results are objective and traceable inspection data, which are provided without any influence of the operator. The automatic feedback of the measured values in the production process increases productivity and efficiency.
In the March/April issue of Glass Worldwide we explain how the curvature of windshields or glass roofs can be measured, both inline and immediately...
Flatness measurements downstream the heat-treatment line at Ilsenburger Grobblech (Salzgitter Gruppe)
A nokra flatness measuring system installed in cooperation with SMS at the end customer Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH.
In comprehensive tests and investigations, it has been demonstrated that the gauge measures with a much higher precision than that specificated in the...
