Systems for Steel Production

Our products are the most reliable part of any mill stand. They have to be to perform without failure under the harshest of environments imaginable. Incorporating strain gages as sensing elements and constructed from solid, high strength stainless steel forgings, our products outperform and outlive competitive products when used as original equipment and as replacement in mills – which accounts for our high percentage of retrofit business in the steel industry. With our recent acquisition, we have added certain optical gages for control systems and enhanced our other product offerings for process control in the steel mill industry.

Web and Strip Tension Transducers

Web tension sensors and controllers are used on continuous processing machinery for applications such as paper and roofing material production, printing, metal rolling, cutting, embossing, punching and forming. Typically, force sensors are placed at each end of an idler roll that is part of a machine frame and over which the web travels in the process. Thereby, the idler roll equipped with sensors measures the force placed upon the roller from the web. The output signal from the sensor can be used to control such parameters as the magnitude of the web tension, the speed of the web, the alignment of the web, or to detect breakage in the processing of the web.

Systems for Onboard Weighing and Overload Monitoring

An onboard weighing system is used to weigh a load carried by a vehicle with the system being wholly contained within the vehicle. The system is used not only for measuring the weight of a load as it is being placed on a vehicle; it is also used to weigh portions of a load being removed from a vehicle. Typically this occurs where a vehicle is used to transport a load of material to various locations and at each location some of the load is removed. There are onboard weighing models available for tractor-trailers and vocational trucks in a variety of applications, including trash collection, dump trucks, and concrete mixers. The biggest benefits to truck operators are reduced loading and adjustment times, since onboard scales allow for loading the vehicle to the maximum legal limit on-site. In addition, they allow for maximized payloads on every trip and the elimination of overweight fines.
