Nippon Steel Japan Places Order for a Shapeline Flatness System


Nippon Steel, Oita plate mill, Japan, has placed an order for a Shapeline flatness measurement system with the Japanese trading house Mitsui.

The laser based platform system will measure flatness and shape in Nippon Steel's 5.5 m- wide steel plate shearing line at the Oita plate mill. The start-up of the system is planned for the spring 2012 and will be the first Shapeline system installed at a Japanese mill. It follows the installation of three Shapeline platform systems at Nippon Steel's Brazilian cooperation Usiminas during the last two years.

Shapeline AB is a Swedish based supplier of laser based systems for flatness measurement within the global steel-/metals industry. The company started in 1999 and has today supplied over 60 flatness systems for productivity and quality optimization worldwide.
