longitudinal faults occur. e. • Or to calculate the out-of-tolerance (scrap) lengths for head and tail.: • Round bar. an oscillating SMO or a rotating SMR gauge is the right solution. if an accurate section is required. for dimensions up to 550 mm (21.g. cross section or area in mm2 (in2. Single Axis Systems In many cases for hot or cold processes.Basic Concept The combination of up to 6 measuring axes (lasers) with up to 2000 measurements for each axis offers an extremely dense information for both longitudinal and radial direction. such as seams.65 in.) can be calculated based on the particular diameter values d1. This means an extremely short distance between measurements. Fast or periodic variations in diameter and section can be detected and measured. overfills. the complete billet is scanned 100% from the very start to the end. See also: – Technical notes on detailed hardware and software functions. EPM. However. Calculation of Cross Section The approx.g. (optionally 50 mm / 2 in. The head and the tail data can be processed and utilised depending the need: • Its possible to suppress programmable lengths at the head and the tail separately. This can be used for quality control. a single axis system is the right solution. an SMS gauge cannot see the fault when it is located between 2 axes (in case of a 6 axes gauge the dead angle is 30°).

STEELMASTER SMS gauges are extremely compact and easy to integrate into existing mills and need close-to-zero maintenance. When combined with STEELMASTER electronics it is often referred to as SMS xx-S1. Examples: Short distance between measurements At 100 m/s D = 50 mm At 10 m/s D = 5 mm D Examples with 3 axes: 60° Up to 1000 measurements/s (optionally 2000 measurements/s) At 100 m/s D = 100 mm / 4 in. If this is of importance. where ovality is not important • With of flat bar or strip • When a large distance between emitter and receiver is required For all such cases ZUmBaCH offers the ECOGAUGE line of single axis instruments in various configurations with simple processors/displays. billets or tubes. .
