Shape Scan System

Contactless monitoring system allowing shape measurement of a tested product.


Using system of lasers and one area camera it is possible to evaluate flatness of manufactured product. This system is able to detect large number of defects – from common waves in the center of the plate via evaluation of border damage to cracks in the material. Flatness measurement can be generalized to evaluation of deviation from the ideal shape – ie. in production of rails, bottles, etc. Common application example of this system can be evaluation of flatness on cold-rolled grain oriented electrical steel strip coupled with data archiving.

We are able to modify the system according to:

  • size and shape of the product,
  • measured accuracy,
  • requested outputs,
  • reaction in case of non-compliance – for example communication with production line or operators‘ reaction.

System benefits

  • Monitoring the production quality in real time, ability to respond to inconsistency in production,
  • increasing the yield by minimizing the production of non-conforming products,
  • optimization of a production process using a reverse analysis,
  • archiving information about the shape of a product for possible warranty claims,
  • elimination of non-conforming product supplied to customer.


The technology is based on a system of lasers projecting a line on measured surface. Surface is then captured with camera and control system performs evaluation of deviations from ideal shape.
Connection to the control system of a production line ensures exact identification of a product and its accurate location/position.
Shape Scan System allows measurement of products of arbitrary shape.

Shape Scan System - slitting and cutting line application


Software provided with Shape Scan System is widely customizable for your specific needs. The basic features of the software include:

  • real-time production inconsistency signaling,
  • archiving of measured data and the possibility of a later review and comparison,
  • visualization of flatness/shape maps from measured data (2D, 3D),
  • statistical comparisons of archived data,
  • high variability of printed reports.
