LIMAB at Aistech 2012

LIMAB at AISTech in Atlanta, USA

LIMAB participated at the Iron & Steel Technology Conference and Exposition, AISTech 2012, in Atlanta, USA, during May 7-9

We had many visitors and interesting discussions about our dimensional measurement systems for the steel industry, i.e. the HotProfiler (bars, profiles), the TubeProfiler (tubes and pipes), The SlabProfiler (slabs) and WireProfiler (wires and rebars).

The President for our US operations LIMAB North America Inc, Mr. Jens Svensson, can be seen on the photo.

We are looking forward seing you all next year in Pittsburg.

LIMAB at TUBE 2012

LIMAB at TUBE 2012

Last week, LIMAB was attending the International Trade Fair for the Tube and Pipe Industry in Düsseldorf, Germany. A lot of customers and partners passed by our booth and gave us a chance to present our laser and inspection systems for true dimensional measurements.

Our newly developed straigthness measurement system for tubes and pipes, the TubeProfiler S, was exhibited at the show. The TubeProfiler S is an on-line measurement system capable of measuring outer diameter, ovality, shape errors, length and straightness (both overall and local) of tubes and pipes. It is an excellent tool for the tube and pipe manufacturers to enhance their quality and process control. LIMAB is today the only company capable of offering this combined solution into one system.

We also presented our TubeProfiler, which measures the outer diameter, ovality, shape errors and length of tubes and pipes. The TubeProfiler has been installed in production lines by most of the world-leading tube and pipe manufacturers. For the measurement of strip thickness, we are offering our PanelProfiler.

The exhibition was a great success and we are hoping to see you all again soon.

Tube & Pipe Technology magazine published article regarding LIMABs new tube straightness measurement system

“SWEDISH-based LIMAB manufactures laser measurement systems for the steel industry. It is one of the pioneers in noncontact laser measurement, with its own sensor development, engineering, design and manufacturing done in-house. LIMAB has developed several innovative measurement solutions for the steel industry such as diameter, ovality, length, thickness and width measurement.

At Tube 2012 the company will launch a new tube and pipe straightness measurement system. The two current measurement systems for diameter and ovality/shape measurement, HotProfiler and TubeProfiler, can now also include a straightness measurement with very high accuracy. HotProfiler is a non-contact in-line laser measuring system for hot and cold applications in bar and tube rolling mills. The system can be equipped with 18 sensors placed in a rotating measurement frame. TubeProfiler is a non-contact in-line measurement system, equipped with 8 to 24 sensors, for hot and cold applications in bar, tube and pipe mills.

LIMAB has already won several TubeProfiler projects with its new straightness feature for commissioning in the first half of 2012. The HotProfiler and the TubeProfiler are very easy to install in the existing line and easy to relocate to other parts of the mill, using the built-in lifting hooks and the quick change electrical connectors.”

LIMAB moving to new facilities in October 2012

Due to a steady growth and in order to meet the future expansion, LIMAB will relocate to new facilities within the Göteborg area in October, 2012.

The building will be designed to meet our current and future needs regarding space and production flow. We are looking forward to invite our customers and partners to visit us. The new contact details will be distributed at a later stage.
