First Shapeline system at Material Sciences, USA

Linköping Sweden, November 17, 2013 –   Material Sciences Corporation, has successfully installed a Shapeline Flex flatness measurement system at their plant in Walbridge, OH.

The laser based system is used for measuring flatness of steel strips in the plant’s galvanizing line. The key benefit for Material Sciences is that they can optimize energy usage and reduce the risk for electrode damage in the electrical galvanizing process by measuring the flatness of the steel strips. Thus optimum coating and process conditions can be achieved.

The system started up in September 2013 and is the first Shapeline system installed in a Material Sciences plant.
