Why Radar Triumphs Over Other Sensor Technologies:

Ultrasound: While ultrasound sensors have their merits, they struggle in heterogeneous environments, succumbing to challenges posed by dusty workspaces, steam, and heat. Mecorad Radar Sensors rise above these limitations, delivering reliability in the demanding field of industrial metal processing.



Laser: Precision is the hallmark of laser sensors, but they falter in the face of dust or deposits, compromising their performance. Mecorad Radar Sensors, relying on electromagnetic waves, remain undeterred by adverse conditions, emerging as the superior choice for real-world industrial applications.

Tailored Solutions for Unmatched Precision

Mecorad offers tailored solutions and single products designed to meet the diverse needs of the industry:

Distance Series: A single-sensor product solution for reliable, real-time radar distance measurement of hot or cold steel.

Level Series: Tailored for extreme conditions above a mold, tundish, or ladle, providing unmatched accuracy.

Wtl Series: Advanced solutions with two-sensor self-calibration, achieving micrometer measurement accuracy up to 200 microns in width or 50 microns in thickness, angle, and skew.
