ACTA AS, the only fully digital equipment in its category, is the market's most advanced and most reliable testing unit, stemming from ACTA's 40 years experience in the non destructive testing field.
Wide 6 sensors test head
Automatic test head positioning and digitally controlled constant gap, whatever the roll profile is.
User friendly interface, Microsoft Windows environment.
Testing in hidden time, during grinding, separate
display of bruises, cracks, and magnetism. Indication
of the roll profile.
Easy integration in all existing or new grinders.
Real time roll "mapping".
Easy networking, even wirelessly, for immediate access
to data where needed.
Digital unit, no constant recalibration needed.
Instant and automatic adaptation to all roll grades
