Rolling Mill

Problem
One of the processes within a Steel Mill is the Rolling Mill. In this section of the mill, thick slabs of steel are compressed with large rolls into a thinner dimension. The quality of thickness of the metal depends on the performance of the position feedback, and the reliability of the sensor to perform flawlessly.

Solution

The 953 VMax LDT, with the protection of the 950MD Mill-Duty Housing, is ideally suited for these hot, wet, and high shock applications. The 953 VMax provides the distance between the two rolls and reports positional data back to the host control with resolutions up to 1 micron.

Benefits
• High shock and vibration ratings ensure survivability in these robust applications
• IP68
• Programmable zero and span
• Diagnostic LED
• Available with analog, digital or SSI outputs

Conclusion
The Gemco controls are right at home in this type of environment and are sure to give years of fl awless positional feedback in these types of applications. Gemco is the only LDT manufacturer that offers a protective stainless steel mill duty housing to ensure the LDT survives in this hostile application.
