Using the RDMS profile measurement system from LAP, steel industry plants can measure the contours of glowing wires, bar steel and tubes in the production process completely automatically. Software warns in real-time about imminent tolerance infringements even before the product quality suffers. Users can specifically optimise the capability of the individual structures locally and avoid costly rework. The RDMS profile measurement system can also be integrated in existing lines where space is limited. It is currently the most compact measuring system on the market.
