To use a new technique successfully in an industrial application, the qualities and constraints, the possible snags and the means required for the achievement of the project must first of all be fully appreciated. This initial stage has been accomplished in the case of the technique known as "optical sectioning", which is aimed at providing rolling mill staff with a means of inspecting the geometry of the product, both continuously and in real time. The optical sectioning technique gives a true three-dimensional view of the rolled product. The capability thus provided for tool setting is fully in line with the objective of total quality currently being striven for in the steel industry. In making use of the most up-to-date electro-optical, electronic and computerised equipment, this new concept in inspection is an important technological development in visual control.
