Laser Gauges

The new standard for precision and speed

With the new VTLG Series laser systems, Vollmer is giving strip thickness measurement new impetus: They combine the highest precision with rolling mill-oriented design. Thanks to their unique measuring method, they are suitable for use in cold rolling mills. With a measuring precision of ± 1 µm and scanning rate of 50 kHz, they offer the precision and speed necessary for the control of the strip thickness.

VTLG systems are the only laser gauges to measure the strip thickness during rolling in the mill, thus opening up completely new possibilities in production and quality assurance for our customers.

WAs with our contact gauges, they measure the thickness irrespective of the alloy – ideal preconditions for use in the rolling mill, but also on the annealing line, in the finishing section, on the strip edge miller or in the steel service centre.

Simple and safe

An automatic air cleaning system for the measuring window and beam path and the innovative temperature compensation ensure the highest precision even under difficult environmental conditions. As the lasers conform to laser protection class 3B, no additional beam protection guards are necessary.

Contact Gauges

Proven for decades

The contact gauges that measure the thickness of the strip with an accuracy of a few micrometres are renowned for their outstanding precision and exceptional reliability: Almost 2000 systems that have gone into operation worldwide in recent decades are still in use even today.

They still form an integral part of the measurement technology in new plants where the highest precision is demanded.

Flexible from 0.01 to 24 mm
Tactile measurement is employed at all stages of the strip production process – on the annealing line and during rolling, on the finishing line or during strip processing as well as in the steel service centre. Vollmer delivers the systems in different versions for thicknesses from 0.01 to 24 mm.

Precise even on wavy strip
With a measuring precision of down to one micrometre per millimetre of strip thickness, they meet the demands of modern rolling mills. Contact gauges adapt to the strip passage and follow any waviness of the material. They thus compensate angular errors by actively adjusting the sensors perpendicularly to the wavy strip material.

Visualisation and Evaluation

50 years of measurement and assessment of strips means extensive experience in the visualisation and analysis of the data. Our visualisation and evaluation software is therefore specially tailored to the needs of strip assessment, for long strips and with a high measurement point density. It offers numerous editing and evaluation modes configured specially for the demands of strip production.

Vollmer offers two basic products:

VGraph: The comprehensive software for the recording and visualisation of the measurement data with statistical data evaluation and a wide array of options
VRecoS: The system for the visualisation and recording of data which essentially replaces the paper plotters previously used
The Office option with both products allows later evaluation and editing of the data on other computers in the customer's works.
