Steel Bar Cut Length

Laser Rangefinders Measure Cut Length For Steel Bars

Laser sensors measure the position of the end relative to the distance to a saw blade

A large steel producer makes products in various shapes and sizes. Round bar stock is created by cutting a continuously-cast bar to specific lengths. Bar is fed down a roller conveyor and a laser rangefinder (AR1000) measures the position of the end relative to the distance to a saw blade. The length is displayed on a screen in a remote operator's booth as the distance data is transmitted via 4-20mA current loop signal.

The AR1000 measures to the leading edge of the steel bar. The temperature of the bar may be as high as 1100°F and the accuracy is 2 mm.
