In a world where steel plates and strips are getting wider, harder and thinner, precision flatness measurement is becoming a standard requirement in many parts of the metal industry. Accurate flatness measurement not only improves levels of quality assurance and customer satisfaction, it also ensures a faster time to market and a fast return on investment.


Hot Rolling Lines

Accurate flatness measurement under hot conditions

Plate Process Lines

Quality assurance and process improvements in relation to measurement in plate leveling, shearing and finishing lines.

Strip Process Lines

Incoming strip shape, tension leveling control, tuning of in-line quench,
quality assurance at strip exit.

Cut-to-length Lines

Flatness measurement made easy – for standard lines, be used for wider material and precision steel.

Our solutions are tailored for all flatness measurement in the different phases of the flat metal production.

Our solutions

The solutions we provide are a combination of application knowledge and technology tailored for flatness measurement in various situations. These situations can be everything from hot rolling to hardening lines producing the finest precision steel. The technical platform is always the same, but the integration in the lines, information presented to the user, environmental protection, calibration etc. vary over wide ranges.

Overcome the difficulties

Measuring flatness, width and other geometric features accurately in-line during the course of plate transportation and production is, be it in the rolling, quenching or levelling process, easier said than done. But once the difficulties are overcome, significant benefits in terms of efficiency and higher yield are assured. Designed to resolve these difficulties, Shapeline Plate software provides the tools to locate and eliminate flatness irregularities and fine-tune the process. The versatility of the Shapeline system enables you to determine the levels of functionality and intelligence necessary to meet your specific demands, and facilitate their integration into your particular production environment. Better control, higher quality, lower operating costs and increased productivity are the outcome.
