Lut 2.0 TPS/
Triple Probe Scanner

The Lut 2.0 TPS probe for 3-roll stand mills

The Lut 2.0 Triple Probe Scanner is ideal for:

  • Sizing and stretch-reducing mills
  • PQF®, FQM™ and any other 3-roll stand retained mandrel mills

Designed specifically for 3-roll stand mills, the Lut 2.0 TPS unit provides all the data required to adjust critical rolling parameters.

Triple probe scanning and positioning device

  • High spatial resolution provides the best cross-sectional profile possible 
  • Scanning unit completes an entire cross-sectional profile in under two seconds
  • Three measurement probes positioned 120° apart are aligned with the main rolling axis
  • Small footprint: as little as 800 mm x 2000 mm of floor space is required
  • No tube guiding required
  • Built to sustain direct tube impact 
  • Integrated turnkey equipment with all support systems included.

Key hardware advantages

  • Marathon™ laser, with a diode lifetime of 6 billion shots, does not require regular maintenance
  • Durabeam™ fully sealed optical assembly for years of maintenance-free operations
  • PDL™ provides a wide working margin (>350mm) so the Lut 2.0 can operate at a safe distance from the tube
  • TWM™ high-sensitivity detector is naturally immune to ambient vibrations.

Intuitive user interfaces

The Lut 2.0 thickness gauge continuously monitors tube production to attain better mill yield. Through the user interface, operators have access to all critical information in real time. Any archived data can be recalled and visualized at any time. The customizable user interface allows the user to visualize:

  • Tube profiles
  • Radial cross-section
  • Average values 
  • Production trends

The Lut 2.0 advanced analytics module:

  • Detects and quantifies eccentricity orders individually
  • Measures the position of heavy/light ends
