Dayton, OH – January 3, 2018 –NDC Technologies, a leading global provider of precision measurement and control solutions, reports that producers continue to look for innovative and cost-effective ways to implement high-performance measurement systems. NDC Technologies is meeting this demand with market-driven solutions for high-value hot mills. The company’s recent W200 Optical Width Gauge is designed to help hot mills produce higher quality products, increase productivity and realize significant manufacturing savings.

“Over the years, the IRM brand of metals gauging systems has been synonymous with providing accurate, reliable measurements to high-value hot mills worldwide,” says Mike Ramsey, Director of NDC’s Metals business. “Today, these IRM products are now part of the NDC Technologies solutions portfolio and integrated with NDC’s most advanced and intelligent measurement technology. These expanded measurement capabilities provide hot mills with best-in-class gauging systems. Best of all, now hot mills can take advantage of this world-class performance at exceptional introductory prices.”

NDC’s metals gauging systems have a long heritage in the steel industry, serving the world’s leading manufacturers. The W200 Optical Width Gauge uses the most advanced stereoscopic measurement technology to accurately and consistently measure product width across a range of process conditions. This system is designed to be installed above the product in hot strip and plate mills, and provides high-resolution true width measurement from an ultra-stable optical bench with long-life lasers. The W200 incorporates over 30 years of NDC/IRM experience in manufacturing optical width and flatness gauges for the metals industry. Advantages include flexible scalability to meet unique application requirements, the highest measurement performance driven by the most advanced technology, and the lowest cost of ownership.

The W200 system can also be equipped with the Beta LaserMike LaserSpeed® length and speed gauge for crop shear optimization, marking and cutting control, discrete coil and plate length, elongation and differential speed applications.

The W200 metals gauging system is based on NDC’s proprietary Total Distributed Intelligence (TDi) architecture which creates a more powerful, yet simpler system -- providing industry leading measurement performance, better uptime, easier maintainability and low cost of ownership. This successful architecture has been proven across thousands of different processes and applications since its introduction in 2006.
