wtl series

 Logo /

mecorad’s wtl series was developed to measure geometries under the metal forming industries’ harshest conditions. 

wtl series is based on state-of-the-art IT and radar technology. Even under conditions of extreme heat, thermal radiance, dust or aerosols our IIoT solution achieves sub-millimeter measurement accuracy where conventional optical or laser sensor technologies reach their limits.

Range of applications

Our modular solution guarantees technical scalability as well as the highest flexibility of the layout and measurement distance to achieve the best performance for you. It can be used in a wide range of applications to improve yield and resource efficiency, such as  

  • measurement of width, thickness and length of forming goods at any position in hot rolling lines 
  • measurement in continuous casting directly underneath the mold where the outer shell just solidifies
  • hot metal detection, for example, at crop shear or for positioning in/ after furnaces
  • precise level measurement of filling and freeboard of steel and metal melts
