BUCK MHE is the world leading provider of specialized handling equipment for steel plants and is the supplier of the BUCK Mecana NT billet surface crack detection system.
The range of handling equipment consists of slab tongs, billet and block tongs, different types of coil tongs, sheet lifters and automatic coupling systems. Each solution is tailor-made to suit exactly the customers needs.
The BUCK Mecana NT system offers the fusion of the proven Mecana dry magnetic particle inspection system paired with a new sophisticated and innovative optical crack recognition system. Application of the system is not only to detect existing cracks on billets but also the reduction of cracks through optimization of the casting and rolling processes by adapting the relevant parameters with data acquired with the system. Existing cracks on billets can be ground with the data from the optical recognition system with several grinding solutions leading to a possible automatic billet conditioning line.
