Measuring Billet Profiles With Acuity’s Laser Line Scanners Ensures Aluminum Billets Are Square

November 2019, MARIETTA, GA ~

Laser line scanners used to profile billets with repeatability and speed before scalping  

No reliance on manually measuring the deepest point of the billet before the scalping process

Develop shorter cycle times and avoid excessive material scrap

Inline Laser Measurement Before Scalping

  • Measuring range: 5 mm – 1000 mm
  • Resolution: down to 0.8 microns
  • Large selection of cases and measuring ranges
  • Real-time 3D profiling can be created

The AccuProfile 820 Laser Scanner creates 2D profiles and 3D point cloud data using laser triangulation measurement principles. The AP820 is compact and performs very well on shiny or jagged targets. Edge scanning pose little problem due to the units auto gain and high dynamic range.

Laser Measurement To Avoid Excessive Material Scrap

Acuity lasers produce a 3D point cloud of the raw billet surface giving way for software to accurately calculate the coordinates of the highest and deepest levels of the surface. The laser measurements bring clients the advantage of shorter cycle times and avoid excessive material scrap.
