3D Laserscanning in Steelcasting Ladles under hot condition

As an absolute novelty in the field of measurement technology for the steel industry Ferrotron Division from Minteq International, leader in industrial Laser-technology, introduces the LaCam®  – EXPLORER. This newest product of the LaCam®  family allows the inspection of a Steelcasting-ladle with measurements of the refractory-lining in less than 2 minutes. The special cooled Laser-head is immersed into the hot ladle by means of a sturdy manipulator arm. The results calculated with the millions of collected data points provide a reliable way of inspecting a Steelcasting-ladle at minimum time consumption. The advanced possibilities of evaluation allow a big range of presentations, from simple tabular reporting up to a virtual walk-through of configurable 3D images. This patented technology provides beside safety improvement huge savings in refractory- and maintenance cost.
