Dimension and weight control for rebars

TBK has developed a gauge to measure rebars that allows mill operators not only to control the diameter and the conditions of the ribs but also to roll in a reliable manner close to the minus tolerance. In addition, the condition of the ribs with regard to roll wear can also be monitored. The gauge can be installed either in rebar mills or in wire rod mills used to produce rebars, and wire rod.

Key values to be extracted out of accumulated cross sections consecutively taken during passing of the rebar:

  • Width of seam (longitudinal rib)
  • Core diameter
  • Maximum height of cross rib
  • Height of rib in defined angle
  • Weight per meter
