Edge Tech Coil Inspection

FLAWLESS TRIM COIL AFTER COIL

Bad edge conditions on steel coils result in downgrading or re‐trimming that costs manufacturers millions of dollars. The Edge Tech Remote Inspection system allows detailed inspection of the trimmed edge on both sides of the strip immediately after the trimming operation is performed. Strip edge quality, knife wear, and knife cracks can be seen, corrected, and then checked to ensure that the problems have been eliminated.

  • MORE INSIGHT. MORE OPTIONS. LESS SCRAP
    For the first time, you can monitor coil edge quality and see knife wear in real-time. Make necessary adjustments long before the coil is complete, eliminating the need for additional processes like retrim and the cost of rejected or downgraded coils.

  • MONITOR QUALITY FROM THE SAFETY OF THE PULPIT
    Improve operator safety by limiting interaction with the line to only when necessary. Edge Tech captures and magnifies edge quality to show critical settings like lap and gap and symptoms of knife wear like burrs and sawtooth, far from the hazards of the line.

  • INSPECTION TECHNOLOGY FOR TODAY (AND TOMORROW)
    Retrofit existing lines with Edge Tech today and start gathering intelligence to increase efficiency and yield. Machine learning features provide faster response to defects identified as critical for your operation, which will help you to keep up with the production needs of tomorrow. Invest today with the benefit of knowing you can upgrade as new features are released.
