CaliView® is a measurement system for seamless tube mills. It uses a camera to measure the alignment of the rolls quickly, simply and - more importantly - in a contact-free way. What sets SMS group’s CaliView® system apart is that it measures the rolls and pass-lines in mills for seamless tube production inline. That makes it possible, for the first time, to exactly assess the passes with the rolls installed in the mill. According to a subsequent analysis of the measurement results, the rolls can be aligned to optimize the pass.
Beside it’s actual purpose to measure PQF and MPM mills the system can be used to check the alignment of the extractor to the PQF / MPM and in the toolshop for sizing mill stands. Also the wear of the rolls can be seen and evaluated.
