It is semi-portable and can either be installed permanently
on a particular machine or can be easily moved from machine to machine,
as desired. It incorporates a highly sensitive, non-contact displacement
transducer mounted to the wheelhead that is used to measure the topography
of a roll surface on completion of grinding. The system is capable of
detecting regular marks with a depth as small as 0.05 µm,
these being invisible to the naked eye.

When rolling steel and aluminium strip, especially that designed for applications that demand high quality surfaces such as automotive, can-stock and litho, it is imperative that rolls are free of grinder chatter or other regular banding marks. Chatter_Detect is a post-process inspection system designed to help roll shop personnel to ensure that the surfaces of finish ground rolls are free of chatter marks before dispatching them to the mill.
