Laser-View Technologies has helped steel producers integrate high quality and affordable width detection of slabs on caster lines. Accurate and fast width monitoring is key to the quality of the final downstream rolled product. Over the years, we’ve developed expertise in methods of integrating and protecting the lasers in a mill environment.
Several steel mills have announced and that they are under expansions and line renovations. Thanks to our unique air purge window and cooled electronics, Dimetix lasers can be placed adjacent to a strand on the caster line producing live width measurements. Our visible, red laser spot can be seen even on the red hot steel slab.
