Innovations for over 50 years
Vollmer has set new standards with innovations time and time again, for example with micrometre-precision tactile thickness gauges or unique control methods for thickness or with contact-free strip shape measurement under tension.
With laser-optical thickness measurement directly in the cold rolling mill, Vollmer is now launching the next innovation boost in measurement and control technology for cold rolling.
