HiPROFILE: the essential dynamic, in-line inspection technology for bars and medium sections
New Danieli Automation HiProfile in operation at ArcelorMittal Sul Fluminense
A HiProfile gauge with four laser heads performing accurate profile measurement of large beams and channels up to 155 mm was recently installed and commissioned at ArcelorMittal Sul Fluminense plant, Barra Mansa, Brazil.
Equipment connection, tuning and full cold tests were executed in just 8 hours.
Danieli do Brazil technicians operated in remote mode, limiting the on-site presence to just one specialist, due to the current pandemic. The Final Acceptance Certificate was released straightaway.
HiProfile allows the complete in-line dimensional control and surface-defect inspection of bars and sections during rolling.
The system, featuring ultra-high-speed laser heads capable of acquiring several hundred profiles per second, allows real-time 3D representation of the bars, accurate dimensional control, and integrated surface-defect detection during rolling.
The benefits from the installation of this device are proven by the quality improvement of the final products, making HiProfile recognized as “an essential tool” by the most qualified long product producers.
Since 1992, Danieli Automation has pioneered the laser profile gauge technology and recorded more than 130 HiProfile installations worldwide.
