Thickness Measurement Systems for Aluminium Industry
Seltek thickness gauges are used for different applications in aluminium industry such as:
- Continuous Caster
- Hot Rolling Mill
- Cold Rolling Mill
- Foil Mill
- Slitting Line
- Tension Leveling Line
These systems measure the thickness of the flat aluminium product on-line. Sensors are isotope or x-ray source based. Very stable and long lasting ion chambers are used as detectors. Measurement is non-contact in nature.
Most common model is C-Frame scanner with single point measurement mode. Scanning C-Frames and O-Frames are also available.
Electronics enjoy a distributed architecture and the cabling between the frame and the main CPU is minimal, being restricted to Ethernet cable and power cable.
HMI (Human Machine Interface) is operator friendly. Fast and slow trend plots, recipe page, rich maintenance page, coil report page, alarm and event log pages are all very easy to learn and self guiding. Coil data is stored numerically in MS SQL® database, which can be converted to Excel® format for use by mill staff.
