Accurate measuring of mult widths on slitting lines has long been a goal of metal processors. Historically, mults (strips cut from master coils) are typically measured by hand which, as most people know, is inconsistent, time consuming and oftentimes unsafe. However, as tolerances become tighter it has become more important than ever for processors to […]
