Advanced Gauging Technologies just completed the startup of a new AGT800 Laser Thickness Gauge at Carpenter Technologies on their 18” Wet Grinding Line in Reading, Pennsylvania. They are running stainless steel, high nickel alloy, and cold worked steel on this line.
Carpenter is gaining a great deal of benefits from this gauge as it allows them to determine thickness without stopping their line to take hand mic measurements. Now they are able to take thickness data and make changes further back in their line as soon as the gauge indicates that they are out of tolerance. That means less downtime and higher productivity. It’s a win-win every way you look at it!
