Teeming Arrest Detection

The flame cuts on big cross cuts are mostly done with two welding blowpipes, cutting from both sides into the material. Here, it is possible that a teeming arrest appears in the centre of the material due to unequal cuts of the two blowpipes. If such a teeming arrest is fed into processing or clamping machines, for example for trimming, t he tools can be destroyed by the running-in teeming arrest. Here also an OPTImess sensor with an Δh / Δ x-evaluation of the surface profile offers a solution.
