Lighting systems and laser Dopplers
LDV Laser- und Lichtsysteme GmbH supplies lighting systems for visual surface inspection as well as laser Dopplers for speed and length measurement.
Through the effective use of the light as a working medium, our patented lighting systems enable a faster and clearer identification of surface defects. As a separate division in LDV Laser- und Lichtsysteme GmbH, the products for visual surface examination are incorporated under the name iLux-Lichtsysteme (iLux lighting systems).
Speed differences in rolling mill application are measured by high precision Velemeter® systems. The measurement results are used for mass flow application as well as for elongation ratio measurement in cold and hot mill environment.
Measuring Systems for Thickness Measurement
For more than sixty years Mesacon have designed, developed and manufactured thickness measurement systems for a variety of applications and materials. We provide systems for simple thickness measurement (centre line measurement), traversing profile measurement and complex Multi Channel Profile gauges including Flatness-, width and speed measurement. Our systems can be used on hot mills, cold mills, foil mills, processing and finishing lines, measuring Steel, Aluminium and Non-Ferrous materials
For paint and galvanizing lines, MESACON Messelektronik supplies layer thickness gauges based on Isotope backscattering or X-ray fluorescence principle.
Built to meet your specific requirements and considering your operational conditions, we offer complete modular measuring systems, or upgrades of existing measuring systems.
