HiSECTION is a non-contact eddy current system for on-line measurement of the cross sectional area In hot rod & bar mills cold stainless steel or non-ferrous rod & bar mills. The MD5000 family of sensors measures rounds, ovals and rebars. The system can be used in any application where bar sections require continuous real-time monitoring.

HiSECTION is based on the detection of eddy currents inducted on the surface of the rolled bar by a variable electromagnetic field. The electromagnetic design of the sensor is optimized by using FEM techniques. In this way vibration and transverse movements of the bar don’t affect the measure. An advanced and innovative signal processing calculates in real-time the cross-section of the rolled bar, independently by its steel grade. Different sensor sizes are available to cover different product ranges.
