Steel Making

Problem
To replace encoders on roller or rail type side guides with a sensor system that is more rugged and accurate, allowing for greater reliability, control, and automation of the process.

Solution
Our highly accurate Resolver - or Linear Displacement Transducer (LDT)-based sensor packages in rugged mill-duty housings. These sensor packages are designed to produce reliable and accurate positioning data by reading the actual side guide position, not the drive mechanisms that actuate them. By ignoring machine backlash, we improve accuracy. The Linear Displacement Transducer’s (LDT) mill-duty housing allows it to be mounted directly to the side guide itself, while protecting it from the heat, water, and mechanical damage inherent when this close to the rolling process. In addition, all of our systems are designed for easy installation and are compatible with your host computer.
