Proscan Magnum

Proscan Magnum for profile and flatness measurement

The Proscan Magnum is a non-contact shape table for offline measurement of flatness or shape of aluminium or steel strip. Stresses within the rolled strip mean a residual ‘shape’ remains within the material. This shape is evident when the strip is laid on a flat surface.

The Proscan Magnum accurately measures and quantifies the latent shape in the sample proving absolute values of wave heights, waves per meter and ‘I’ units. Offline measurement is the most accurate method of measuring shape as there is no tension or stress in the material during the measuring process. This makes the Proscan Magnum particularly suited for measuring thin gauge material with very high flatness specification such as lithographic aluminium coil. This system provides the user with full 2D & 3D mapping of the surface flatness.

Proscan Magnum Measurement Technique

By means of a precision gantry system a laser measuring the sample height is scanned over the surface. For every X & Y co-ordinate position, a height measurement (Z) is taken. The resultant X,Y,Z data file is used to calculate the surface shape. The shape is quantified by calculating the ‘I’ unit for each longitudinal scan.

Scantron has developed a number of Proscan products, including solutions for defect detection and measurement and supported by dedicated profilometry software.
