Oryx Non-Contact Metal Strip Thickness Gauge

The non-contact strip thickness gauge is a compact C-frame with two measuring heads, one above and one below the strip. The sensors measure the distance to the strip then calculates the thickness. In addition, it can measure strip that is not flat.

Application:

  • Metal strip thickness measurement

Configuration:

  • Compact Cframe contains two measuring heads, one above the strip and one below the strip. They measure the distance to the strip. The system then calculates the thickness of the strip.

Advantages:

  • Installation directly in the mill is possible.
  • Direct, absolute thickness measurement of any metal.
  • High precision, up to ± 2.0 µm

Measurement parameters:

  • Air gap between sensors 120 mm
  • Strip width 150 mm
