Shapeline AB is a Swedish based supplier of laser based systems for flatness measurement within the global steel-/metals industry. The company started in 1999 and has today supplied flatness systems for productivity and quality optimization worldwide.
The measurement systems of Shapeline are based on the research of Dr. Pär Kierkegaard at the University of Linköping. Pär, now Vice President – Sales and Marketing Director of Shapeline, pioneered laser trigonometry as a method to continuously measure surface profile with high accuracy. In 1995 Pär left the realms of the academic world to use the technology “in the real world”. After measuring several applications we are since year 2000 exclusively serving the metal industries, and then mainly steel, and only flat products. Shapeline is today a privately owned company.
