Exact steel strip positioning in the coating line.
Your color coating line is more productive and cost-effective – with radar!
Prevent unplanned downtime in the coating line.
Monitor the exact position of the steel or metal strip at any time - with radar.
With our reliable radar solution, you will benefit from a precise inline position control of the steel or metal strip in your coating line. Our radar sensors work error-free even in the most difficult environments of the metal industry with heat, dust, smoke, steam, vibrations, noise, adverse lighting conditions or rough surfaces. Thanks to our innovative radar technology, you will successfully prevent collision-related damages to the metal strip or the coating line and thus eliminate unplanned downtime, high maintenance and repair costs and loss of production.
Steel strip height control with radar
For a productive color coating line
For a zero-defect coating process in the coating line, it is important to continuously determine and correct the precise position of the steel strip. The OndoSense apex coating radar solution was specially developed for this application: It enables an error-free inline position control of the steel or aluminum strip. The radar system is suitable for all surface textures, colors and metals. Both freshly painted strips and high-gloss products are reliably detected. The sensor system thus enables a reliable tension control at all times, ensuring an efficient functioning of the color coating line.
Our sensor system is based on high-precision radar technology that is insensitive to heat, dust, smoke, steam, vibration, noise, difficult lighting conditions or rough surfaces. OndoSense radar sensors are therefore able to supply your coating line with reliable measurement values in every situation.
Exact steel strip position: up to 1 mm
No measurement errors and unplanned downtime
For safety reasons, the distance measurement to the steel strip is carried out redundantly with two sensors on both sides of the strip. Our sensor solution determines the position of the steel or aluminum strip for correct height adjustment with an accuracy of up to 1 mm. Thanks to the high measurement rate, the radar sensors will detect anomalies at an early stage: This means that the system control can immediately intervene to correct the coating process.
With the OndoSense sensor solution, measurement errors that lead to faulty steel strip settings are once and for all a thing of the past. Thanks to our extremely reliable radar technology, you will successfully ward off collision-related damages to the metal strip or the coating line. You can finally say goodbye to unplanned downtime, high maintenance expenditures, costly production failures and annoying repair costs.
