Laser Thickness Measurement for the Steel and Metals Industry

Get reliable results throughout the entire coil with thicknesses up to 40mm! Add in PLC integration and your systems can communicate quickly with operators and upstream machines to improve accuracy and reduce coil waste.

Cutting it Close

Using a Mate Gauge, you can detect immediately when your steel goes from on gauge to off gauge - and catch it immediately.  

No more eyeballing or stopping for manual measurements. With our touchscreen display, you can tell immediately when your head or tail end needs to be cut.

3 ways Mate Gauge's technology can integrate and substantially improve your metals production lines. 

Simple Substitution

Replace calipers and other measurement tools with a near-process, high-speed, benchtop laser gauge.

 Improve What You Have

Add a Mate Gauge (like the MGS​​) directly onto your production line and measure your rolls coming down the line.

Automate Your Lines

Connect your MGS directly to your rolling or trimming machines to control thickness with closed-loop control.

Non-contact thickness gauges consistently outperform manual measurement tools!

Manual thickness measurement tools, such as calipers and micrometers, are widely used primarily due to their low cost and familiarity. 

However, more and more companies are turning to modern laser gauging techniques as a proven way to increase the efficiency and quality of their processes and products.
