Siemens VAI Metals Technologies has augmented its portfolio for online flatness measurement of cold rolled strip in steel and aluminum rolling mills with the Siroll Heavy Duty Shapemeter.
The new Siroll Heavy Duty Shapemeter flatness measuring system for steel and aluminum cold rolled strip
The new flatness measuring system is an enhanced version of the tried-and-tested Air Bearing Shapemeter family and enables measurement of cold rolled strips with a thickness of up to 5.5 mm. The system can be adapted flexibly to a wide range of end products and varying production conditions.
With the heavy duty version of the Siroll Shapemeter, Siemens VAI is extending upwards the range of strip thicknesses accessible to flatness measurements. Whereas the previous Shapemeter systems were designed for cold rolled strip of between 0.005 mm and 4 mm, the Heavy Duty Shapemeter handles thicknesses of between 0.05 mm and 5.5 mm. As is the case with the other systems, strips with a width of up to three meters can be measured.
The Heavy Duty Shapemeter features high load-bearing capacity combined with a robust design and is especially suitable for use in cold rolling mills for aluminum and steel, continuously providing plant operators with flatness data on the cold strip measured, even at low rolling speeds. The Automatic Trend Alignment (ATA) ensures precise positioning of the measured roll under all operating conditions and the system offers one the highest resolutions available today.
Like the other measuring systems from the Shapemeter series, the heavy duty version has a modular structure, which facilitates commissioning, reduces maintenance work and minimizes the stocking of spare parts.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
