Our mission is to
revolutionize the roll shop industry through providing the
latest technology in innovative design and top quality
The ndustry asked for a
saddle mic that would measure diameter for over 20 years. Epac's
experienced engineers have produced an industry first! The
patented Epac 3000 not only reads diameter, but also temperature
and profile...and gives you a colored printout of all three
functions on the same page!
The Epac 3000 is a breakthrough
in design leading to rolling mill quality improvements on
several fronts. Because we have moved beyond the antiquated
caliper technology for our Series 3000, it opens up new
possibilities for using the instrument to troubleshoot mill
problems in ways that were not possible with the caliper design.
The light weight and small size allows users to use the mic as a
diagnostic tool as well as in the traditional profiler role. The
Epac Series 3000 can physically fit into a space that calipers
would not even think of going! As users see the Epac 3000 they
are thinking of many new applications for it that will help them
troubleshoot profiling and/or temperature problems in the mill.
In 1999, Harford Industries,
Inc., purchased the rights to both the Epac and the Apac from
Wilbar Manufacturing Company Inc., which had a reputation for
producing the very finest quality micrometers for thirty years.
Wilbar's talented micrometer division designer and manager,
William Mellander, now heads our design team for the Series
3000. We still produce Wilbar's light weight and rugged analog
micrometer (now called The Apac) upon request.
Epac's experienced team of
engineers includes specialists in electrical engineering,
software engineering, mechanical engineering, production,
electronics, and testing.
We have a history of creating
technological breakthroughs in electronic micrometer design
while maintaining our excellent standards of the finest in
craftsmanship and durability.
Consistently accurate readings
with Epac's unique rigid construction and state-of-the-art
technology allow users to take advantage of a quality instrument
at a fraction of the cost of an on-board caliper.
Epac offers service packages
custom designed to meet the full range of customer needs from
the most rigorous ISO/A2LA certification to basic on-site
service packages. Off-site service packages are also available.

Commitment to ongoing
With an ongoing program of
research and development, the Epac Division of Harford
Industries will continue to set the industry standards.
Within six quarters after
delivering the first Epac 3000, Epac engineers produced four
upgrades and designs for one new Epac model which allows users
to measure rolls with 8" to 14" diameter.
Leadership in PC
Epac's sophisticated data
acquisition and transfer help users meet and document quality
standards. Seamless networking with existing technology in the
plant allows users to measure, transfer, and analyze data for
true roll shot management at its best!
Easy operation with Epac's
user-friendly touch screen design allows operators to quickly
master using the Epac for maintaining strict quality standards.
