KOCKS Measure + Inspect GmbH & Co. KG and LAP Measurement Technology GmbH have announced a far-reaching strategic cooperation. It includes the joint development and marketing of the latest generation of laser-based measuring systems under the name 4D EAGLE S. The 4D EAGLE S uses advanced laser technology to accurately detect and classify various rolling defects. At the same time, the complete contour of the long products is measured. Users can access state-of-the-art software tools for the detailed analysis of the collected data on the surface and profile. The two partners are pooling their extensive know-how as part of the cooperation. LAP has been leading in the field of laser measurement systems for the steel industry for decades. KOCKS, contributes its expertise as a specialist in 3-roll technology for precise special bar quality production. Two initial systems were successfully installed at a well-known German steel producer even before the official market launch.
“The teams in rolling mills benefit from far-reaching transparency and the opportunity to optimize process and product quality sustainably,” states Mr. Fabian Beck, Director Global Sales at LAP Measurement Technology.
“Thanks to the synergies we have tapped, the 4D EAGLE S measuring device comprehensively meets the high requirements of modern rolling mills and stands out from existing solutions,” emphasizes Dr.-Ing. Santino Keusemann, General Manager of KOCKS Measure + Inspect GmbH & Co KG.
