LIMAB at Tube 2014

LIMAB at Tube 2014

LIMAB AB participated at the exhibition Tube 2014 in Düsseldorf, Germany

This year LIMAB presented our systems with films from installations all over the world. There was also a steel pipe explaining which types of measurements that LIMAB can provide. We had a lot of visitors from tube manufacturers, which lead to a lot of interesting discussions. There was also many of our existing customers visiting our stand.

LIMAB would like to take this opportunity to thank all the visitors at our stand resulting in many constructive discussions about our non-contact measurement system solutions. We noticed a huge and increasing awareness of high precision measurement, process- and quality control from tube and steel producers. There was a great interest in our straightness measurement solution, TubeProfiler S, from suppliers of tubes to the oil and gas sector.

LIMAB exhibited at the Tube Russia exhibition in Moscow, Russia June 25-28

LIMAB would like to take this opportunity to thank all the visitors at our stand for our non-contact measurement system solutions. We noticed a huge interested in high precision measurement, process control and quality awareness for tube and other steel applications. There was a great interest in our straightness measurement solution, TubeProfiler S, for tubes from both producers and end customers of gas and oil pipes.



LIMAB exhibited at the AISTech exhibition in Pittsburgh, USA May 6-9.

We want to thank all visitors for interesting discussions about our measuring solutions for steel mills.

LIMAB in Japan

LIMAB’s signs Japanese exclusive distribution contract.

LIMAB’s Steel Division signs an exclusive distribution contract for the Japanese steel and non-ferrous market with Nittetsu Hokkaido Control Systems Co. Ltd (Trademark: nCS).

On the 31st of August 2102 the contract was signed in Muroran, Japan by Mr Masamichi Mizuno, President of nCS, Mr Ken Nomoto, President of Intocast JP, the agent for LIMAB in Japan and Mr Lars Granlund, CEO of LIMAB AB.

nCs, with a nation wide network in Japan, is going to perform sales work and provide engineering, turn-key projects and services of the LIMAB size and dimension laser measurement systems.

We are looking forward to a mutual and successful long term co-operation with nCS on the Japanese market.

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.”
