To measure the strip width, we offer width measuring systems using different measurement methods depending on your accuracy requirements and the conditions on-site. These also offer further functions, e.g. contour measurement or detection and classification of edge cracks and holes.

The simplicity of our measuring devices

Our measuring systems impress on the one hand with their simplicity, but on the other hand also with their precision. In contrast to most conventional systems from other suppliers, ours do not require any PC technology at all. The width and/or contour values are calculated on an FPGA chip integrated in the measuring heads. Results and status information are made available to you via Ethernet. You perform parameterization and calibration via the web browser of your laptop. You do not need any operating software and the measuring system does not require a virus scanner.

However, if you require special evaluations and/or a visualization station, we will be happy to supply these. 

The systems are already calibrated before delivery. Nevertheless, we attach great importance to quick and easy calibration or, in terms of quality assurance, quick calibration verification. A lightweight calibration unit is included in the scope of delivery, which can be attached to the measuring heads by one person alone. Finally, our 4-3-2-1-0 method underpins the simplicity of our system.

From our many years of practical experience as commissioning and development engineers, we know what both your production team and your maintenance team need.

Application areas of the width measurement

Areas of application include all areas of processing lines, such as galvanizing lines, tinning lines, continuous furnaces, but also shearing lines, rewinding lines, etc. However, it can also be used at reelers (coiler, uncoiler) in rolling mills.

Our width measuring systems at a glance


The use of the stereoscopic measuring principle has been state of the art for a very long time. We also rely on this technology for our NIGduo width and position measuring system. High accuracies are achieved with this method. Learn more about the 4-3-2-1-0 method.

NIGLAS – Camera System with Laser

The NIGlas measuring system, which operates according to the triangulation principle, is our most compact width measuring system.
