Paper Abstract

The advanced increase of production has a demand for more complex control tools. The design of new IR-Sensors, e.g. infrared line scanners or AGEMA THV 870, has now opened new fields in the infrared technology. Together with the increasing power of digital processing the online monitoring - and processing can be used to improve the quality of the products. One typical field is the hot strip mill where with the introduction of the new line scanner (AGEMA THP-5) it is now possible to check the entire strip's temperature not only at one point but accross the entire strip giving a more accurate information about the temperature distribution. This will strongly correlate with the quality of the product. The constant monitoring of the product can also increase productivity and reduce problems in quality inspection.
