The manipulator has a swinging movement around two axes of rotation in order to approach from the parking to the measuring position.
The lance is water cooled, in order to guarantee a long life and a proper protection for the cabling and the measuring lance sensor. All the mechanical components are carefully shielded from heat and slag radiation by metallic protections.
In order to perform a reliable measurement, the lance insertion movement is controlled in speed and position. In case of collision detection, the manipulator retracts the lance.
