Between the 6th and the 9th of June the Rolling 2016 conference in Graz, Austria, took place. Shapeline was represented by Dr. Pär Kierkegaard, Director of Marketing and Vice President, who presented a paper on hot band measurement titled Optical strip flatness and shape measurement in hot strip mills.
The main challenges with optical measurement under hot conditions, such as heat shimmering, calibration and performance are addressed and the solutions described. The system also measures ski, crossbow, width, off-center and has a potential for camber measurement. Results from the measurements are also reported in the paper.
