Key orders: Tata Steel, Scunthorpe to reduce levelling

Shapeline is just about to finalise a platform system in cooperation with Tata Scunthorpe, UK. The system measures flatness in a shearing line to verify shape, but also to limit the amount of plates sent to the levelling line.

The laser based system is capable of measuring 4.8 m wide plates on-line and has an integrated laser doppler sensor for speed and plate length measurements. The performance of the system was demonstrated under dynamic conditions by Shapeline´s new, traceable, dynamic test procedure.
