- Every millimetre is worth money - EMG iCAM® is THE solution to measure the width or slitted strip width precisely.
- Edge cracks carry a high risk of strip breakage - EMG iCAM® is THE solution to detect edge cracks quickly and precisely.
- High-end products require the highest material quality - EMG iCAM® is THE solution to find holes in the full surface.
With EMG iCAM® (iCAM = intelligent Camera Array Module), a modular solution is now available that enables high-precision strip and stripe width measurement as well as edge crack and hole detection. The various measuring tasks can be combined as desired for the specific application.
The EMG iCAM® system consists of an LED backlight unit ("emitter unit") below the metal strip and a camera unit above the strip, consisting of several CMOS cameras, as receiver unit. The standard strip width is 1,000 mm to 2,250 mm and is scalable in steps of 250 mm (other strip widths on request).
The LED backlight unit emits infrared light in a defined spectral range in the direction of the strip. This is selected in such a way that a maximum reduction of the influence of extraneous light sources is achieved.
The light from the LED backlighting unit is shaded by the metal strip and only in the areas of the strip edges, holes or edge cracks does light pass through, which is detected by the CMOS cameras. Modeled after human eyes, two adjacent camera modules each capture the identical position of photons on the strip from two different directions emitted by the LED backlight unit. This measuring principle is based on the stereo vision concept.

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 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 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.
