EMG eMASS® - electromagnetic strip stabilisation

Stable strip in coil coating lines

EMG eMASS® is a turnkey system for stabilising fast running ferromagnetic steel strips based on electromagnets. The main field of application is the process optimisation and saving of metal coating at the air knife of a hot-dip galvanising, GALVALUME®* or aluminising line.  

The system is installed directly above the nozzle - as close as possible to the nozzle lip that blows off the liquid metal layer. With the experience of over 50 successful installations worldwide, EMG guarantees customised, optimal integration of eMASS® in the air knife area.   

*GALVALUME® is a registered trademark of BIEC International Inc.

More solutions

In the production of steel and aluminium strips, the increased demands on new materials and ever more complex components require an increasingly higher level of process reliability. With our innovative quality assurance systems for the cold rolling area, you can optimise your processes - and thus also your product quality. All EMG systems are based on the same hardware and software structure. Benefit from the use of our broad solution portfolio and reduce your TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).  


EMG SORM 3plus is the online measuring system for recording roughness parameters on running strips. Roughness characteristics are an important quality feature of uncoated and surface-finished strips.



EMG IMPOC is a well-proven magnetic-inductive measuring system for the automatic, non-destructive online determination of the mechanical properties tensile strength and yield strength of ferromagnetic steel strips. 



In hot-dip galvanizing lines, the thickness of the zinc layer on the metal strip is adjusted with the aid of compressed air-driven blow-off nozzles - so-called air knives - directly above the zinc pot.



EMG BREIMO is the non-contact, optical strip width measurement of steel strips in a continuously running process.



Increased demands on new materials and ever more complex components increasingly require higher process reliability.



THE Solution for high-precision strip and stripe width measurement as well as edge crack and hole detection



EMG iTiM is our solution for thickness measurements in various areas, such as hot and cold rolling, steel and aluminum service centers as well as in the automotive industry.
