Quality products for a superior finish
Before steel can leave the plant, it must be processed for later use as much as possible. To achieve this, it is rolled as a plate, wire or rail and provided with surface refinement. The quality of these final steps is visible later in the product. Accordingly, even the smallest errors are irreversible and cannot be allowed to happen.
The highest level of precision is essential. Balluff provides this with quality products for cold rolling and surface refinement. Whether it's at the dancer roll, winder or coating system or during quality control: With these products you will get the best performance, even in the final stretch.
Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors are typically used anywhere where high reliability and accuracy are required. They even guarantee maximum precision when coils are wound during cold rolling, because, for example, the pressure roller is guided depending on the roll diameter.
Functional security during surface refinement is guaranteed by our HCL-resistant BSP pressure sensors. Even under the harsh conditions that prevail there and where there is a potential for contact with hydrochloric acid, they enable the reliable pressure measurement of process media.
As precise all-rounders, Balluff BUS ultrasonic sensors detect plates on rolls and coils and regulate the correct material feed at the dancer roll according to the plate sag. In doing so, they ensure the correct roller drive and that the plate tension is always perfect.
The Balluff BFS color sensor offers unbeatable high quality in the inspection of plate coatings. Here, it reliably detects even the finest color nuances or whether a plate leaves production polished or unpolished. Even in the case of temperature fluctuations, it reliably identifies the plates.
