Gordy’s thickness gauge is based on the optical triangulation principle of a laser line observed by high resolution isochromatic camera. It is an optical measurement method without contact and without hazard radiations. Two measuring heads are mounted one on the top and one on the bottom side of a heavy-duty I-Frame at a certain angle of inclination with respect to material surfaces, in such a way to work from outside of the material running area, in a safer position rather than over and below setup requested by the typical measurement configuration with C-Frame. A thin laser line is projected on each of the two material surfaces and it is observed by the relevant camera through a proper optical system.
Each head measures the position of the relevant surface along the laser line. Material thickness is then calculated from the combination of the measured points, given the distance and the inclination of the two heads. The system is designed to operate in production lines to measure materials with high thickness variations, either cold or hot, either standing or running. System precision is proportional to the measuring range and independent from material thickness and composition.
