MEERgauge®

Measuring systems for bar, wire rod, and tubes with monitor control system

MEERgauge® laser system is available for bars, wire rod, and tubes and creates a true-shape cross-section from about 400 synchronous measuring points in a shared coordinate system. The results are then displayed with maximum precision. Unlike with conventional systems, the true shape of the contour can be represented precisely. With no moving or oscillating parts, the system requires almost no maintenance.
