TBK Automatisierung und Messtechnik is scoring points on competency in laser measurement technology

TBK Automatisierung und Messtechnik GmbH is one of the new members within the SMS family.

The company head­quartered in Graz, Austria, is proud to be the competence centre of the SMS group for laser measurement devices. TBK was founded in 1986 as a technical office by Heinz Kotzmuth. Very soon, the company focused on developing laser mea­surement systems based on the light-section method.

As early as 2004, TBK and SMS group have been closely cooperating, supplying measuring systems for section mills.

Nowadays, TBK is one of the leading suppliers of laser measurement systems for the steel industry. Thirty highly qua­lified staff members including engineers, software programmers, and scientists develop and plan to measure systems for all section types and applications. The measuring sys­tems are manufactured in TBK’s workshops where they are also tested before they are sent to the customers, one of the reasons why turnover within SMS group could be in­creased through the consolidation strategy of measuring activities. Furthermore, switch cabinets and sensors are manufactured in-house.

Today, the market calls for direct information on the quality of the products manufactured such as dimensi­on, shape, and surface quality, allowing the mill operator to adjust the plant online: digitalization in the rol­ling mill.

As a result, sales have increased in recent years using a consolidation strategy of measurement activities within the SMS group.
