Comprehensive ultrasonic quality inspection in the production process

PLATEPROOF enables high-performance, non-destructive testing of your plates via ultrasound. It combines modern ultrasonic electronics – to detect flaws in the test material – with a robust and maintenance-friendly system design.

Everything about the system is made to withstand the harsh operating conditions that are typical of rolling mills.

Your advantages at a glance

  • High system availability – through the use of proven and robust modules with powerful modern components
  • Testing in a single test run – through individual adaptation to the specific plate dimensions, whether operated inline or offline
  • High test volume – due to fast test cycles for each plate. The short cycle times are achieved through an optimized control sequence using the latest Siemens control technology
  • Highly sensitive flaw detection with good reproducibility – thanks to modern ultrasonic electronics
  • Automatic quality assessment of the plates, as well as logging by the evaluation software, according to official or individually defined test standards
  • Re-evaluation of plates – based on stored test data
