For more than 20 years the metals industry has relied on LIMAB’s industrial laser measuring equipment to provide essential dimensional and quality information. Our measurement systems are used in all areas of the metals manufacturing process from continuous casting, hot rolling, cold rolling and finishing processes. Our non-contact laser-based measuring sensors and industrial laser measuring systems are used for applications of speed, length, thickness, width and profile. Our experience gives us a unique insight into our customer’s needs allows us to provide working solutions that have a measurable benefit to our customers.
