LaseSTR - Slab Tracking Roller-table

Continuous monitoring of material on the cold roller table in front of furnaces: The control system receives approximate real-time position information of the slabs.

System features:

  • Fast and exact slab position recognition and monitoring
  • Approximate real-time position data
  • Clear product identification – no confusion
  • Queue building – no problem
  • Further possible application: roller tables with automatic positioning
  • Robust and reliable measuring technology

Short description:
A continuous monitoring of slabs on a cold roller table is possible with the LaseSTR - Slab Tracking Roller-table measurement system. It tracks the slabs on the roller table from the placement on the roller table over the charge identification through to they are pushed into the furnace. The laser scanners are installed alongside the roller table, placed in protective housings. The measurement system can also be installed at a roller table of any length.

The laser scanners send the measured data via Ethernet Interface to our LASE Control Unit (LCU). This application software of the LCU undertakes the following tasks:

  • Measurement data reading of the scanner (distance and angle)
  • Segmentation
  • Image structure of a list with slab ID numbers as well as head and base coordinates
  • Management and notification of malfunctions
  • Communication with material scheduling via TCP/IP
