The new ConScan® system by hpl-Neugnadenfelder Maschinenfabrik visualizes the edge contour shape of narrow strips, thus allowing the operator to intervene immediately in the production process in case of minor deviations from the specified contour.
Since the requirements regarding the exact shape of the strip contours have been continually increased, hpl-Neugnadenfelder had been asked by many of its customers to find a solution for a precise online measurement of strip edge contours. This has resulted in the development of ConScan®, a laser-based system for the visualization of strip edge contours.
The system visualizes typical defects, as for example burrs, edge chippings as well as radii and edges that are out of alignment.
This allows the operator to adjust the chip removal during the running production: the quantity of produced high-quality strips increases, production downtimes are avoided.
