Two types of non-contact speed measurement instruments in rugged housings designed specifically for the harsh environments found in steel and aluminium rolling mills. Two models cover a wide range of applications ranging from the high speed measurement of small diameter hot wire rod to the slow creep speeds of cold and hot slabs.

The SM3100 model uses two identical IR sensors which are spaced apart by a precisely known amount, and are aimed at two small portions of the rod, bar or strip.

The SM3200 model employs machine vision techniques to accurately track the movement of low-speed products. By comparing consecutive images of the product surface, its movement, and thus its speed, can be computed by relying on sophisticated and adaptive algorithms.
