Posco’s Pohang works in South Korea has ordered 10 Steelmaster diameter/profile measuring systems from Zumbach Electronics, Switzerland.

The systems will partially replace existing gauges or complete unequipped locations in the finishing sections of its # 1, # 2 and # 3 rod mills.

All gauges are equipped with 6 ODAC high speed laser scanner (in 6 axes) delivering 6000 calibrated measurements per second, as well as with the latest hardware- and software concept.

The systems will be fully networked over Ethernet with Posco’s material flow and QC control system. The gauges are compact and require limited maintenance.

Delivery of the gauges is scheduled for early 2011. Posco has operated a number of similar gauges in the intermediate sections since 2008.
