Flexible measuring system for a wide range of beams, sections, rails, and special profiles

The product diversity in the field of light, medium and heavy section production is especially challenging when it comes to contour measurements. With particularly large formats, such as beams with web heights of over one meter, the measurement windows must be correspondingly wide. That is why top priority must be given to the mechanical stability of the sensors in relation to each other. Design-related measures and air or water-cooling are used to provide effective compensation for the high thermal loads.
