The AGT800™ laser thickness gauge is designed for measuring metals and virtually any other material, such as plastics, wood, gypsum, rubber and more, that are processed in coil, sheet, or strip form. It provides fast and reliable non-contact laser thickness measurements and S.P.C. reporting using the latest in laser displacement triangulation technology.
Direct benefits realized through these non-contact thickness measurements include documented compliance with ISO9001 and other quality specifications, improved process control, increased productivity, material savings by confirming thickness received matches requirement, and scrap reduction. The standard system also provides disk and/or network data storage and easy recall of all measured thickness data. In addition to thickness measurement information the AGT800 will produce thickness profile charts (Fig 2) for oscillating frame applications. For long term record keeping the laser thickness gauge will produce coil or end of run reports (Fig 3) with production, S.P.C. data, thickness and profile graphs. These reports can be recalled on screen, printed at the gauge or saved as a PDF on the gauge or on a network drive. This feature eliminates the need to maintain large files of printer paper for long-term record keeping purposes.
Our operation and calibration software is so easy and intuitive to use most customers never even open the manual. Our specifications below reflect real-world accuracy and performance not laboratory conditions specified by some other companies.
Our simplified hardware design combined with Keyence ultra high speed, high accuracy laser sensors, make the AGT800™ the most reliable laser gauge in the industry. The measurement system utilizes the latest in technology, reducing the requirement for peripheral hardware. The system configuration provides a very reliable platform for thickness measurement and S.P.C. reporting.
Our gauge includes automatic and real-time temperature compensation eliminating the need to recalibrate between every coil.
Our development engineers tested more than a dozen laser sensor models from five different countries and made the decision to manufacture all A.G.T. laser thickness gauges with high-end Keyence thickness measurement sensors. These are the fastest sensors in the world, and they produce the highest possible accuracy and repeat ability. This translates to the most consistent and stable thickness measurements possible.
The system automatically generates several reports, providing all the information you need in user friendly formats.
All coil data is automatically stored to disk. Any desired information can be easily and conveniently accessed at any point in the future, and the respective reports reprinted with relative ease.
The system is fully capable of network data storage, remote printing and control. Auto Data Gathering can be used to automatically position the C-Frame, start the measurement and reporting function. Auto Data Entry can be used to automatically enter coil data. Using both functions simultaneously, the AGT800 can run itself with no operator intervention.
All digital inputs and outputs, analog inputs, and power supplies can be monitored simultaneously in real-time on a single screen. This feature provides for a means of greatly simplified troubleshooting.
There are no licensing or leak test requirements, no risk of terrorism, and no shipping or radioactive source disposal fee issues.
The AGT800™ includes automatic and real-time temperature compensation to eliminate the need to calibrate between every coil. The stability and accuracy have been proven in the field in all kinds of environments.
The oscillating c-frame option provides more complete information as it scans the thickness across the width of the sheet instead of just one or two points. The oscillating configuration equipped with additional logic and control circuits enable the gauge to automatically sense strip edges and scan from one edge to the other. In this configuration, the Profile Display Screen and Reports are enabled, which show a strip cross-section of thickness versus width.
Patented technology using a third laser sensor to
determine passline angle. U.S. Patent #9151595
Allows inspectors a convenient method of logging strip defects as they are spotted. Available in single or dual handheld keypad configurations, for one or two-sided inspection lines. Read More
Includes an additional remote monitor, keyboard, and touchpad mouse.
Allows easier access to coil reports by enabling the recall of reports from a single or multiple gauges simultaneously via a company network or USB stick. Reports can be accessed without interrupting the gauge measurement or line operation. Also allows coil reports to be formatted as PDF files.
Standard system includes a 17″ LCD flat screen. Optional monitors include a 17″ remote flat screen unit, and a touchscreen.
To replace the standard system local printer.
