HiWIDTH is a contactless sensor designed to continuously measure the width and the centraline deviation of hot and cold flat products. Stereoscopic principles ensure correct width measurement irrespective of how the strip or plate is laying on or above the roll table.

The HiWIDTH gauge is based on the precise detection of the product side edges and on proprietary calculation algorithms capable of determining their position in geometrical free space. Laser light sources and stereoscopic technology make HiWIDTH completely independent of both strip temperature and position (i.e. thickness, lift, tilt or twist) as it “bumps” along the roller table. The compact fully integrated system architecture ensures all measured data are available directly in the field, without the need for separate enclosures or process cubicles installed in remote control rooms.
