Hot metal detectors are specifically designed for steel production applications. They are ideal for controlling a process through accurate presence detection of material flow.
Optical LED, laser and microwave type sensing solutions are used to detect the presence of rod, billet, bar, slab or plate in a rolling mill, continuous casting or other mill process lines. Radiated infrared from hot material passing within the operating range of the HMD will trigger an output function to initiate a process command.
These sensors can reduce the risks of process line failures, scrap and rework by enabling the user to accurately detect product from start to finish.
