Specialists on flat products, measuring online and no contact in harsh environment

Modern industry requires high technological content solutions to improve the process knowledge in order to optimize the overall quality of the final product. We are specialist in thickness measurement and control in the steel and aluminium making activities. Our solutions help our Customers produce the highest quality materials in rolling mills and process lines around the world. Since the 50's, LGE and its predecessors have built on a tradition of innovation and engineering excellence. By focusing on research and development we are continuously striving to be the preferred supplier for high technological solution in the heavy industry. Our main target is to help our Customers to produce better, faster and cheaper, by helping to identify the possible process bottle-necks leading to a low quality products. Thickness consistency and repeatability are two of the main features which identify an high quality flat product, and those variability highlight the overall quality of the production process. However, thickness is greatly influenced by other process variables, such as vibration, speed, temperature so a stand-alone approach to the thickness control can not be acceptable in the modern industry. 

A global approach to the process optimization

Our solutions may help to improve the overall process quality and performances in several ways, cross referencing data from different variables which may affect the final result of an acceptable product. We offer "holistic" solutions to maximize the process quality. Once the variable to be optimized has been identified, (i.e. thickness, shape, density),  the first step is to measure the variable in the most possible accurate way. We provide best-in-class thickness measurement solutions, online and no contact. The following step is to inspect the variable to understand in which condition and from which other variables may be influenced. The last step is to let our systems control the process devices to obtain the best possible result considering other variable's interference. Information gathered can be used online and offline to clarify which are the process parameters to modify in order to maximize the goal  of obtaining a superior final product.
