Functioning and Features of Automatic Measurement System

  • Width, Height Rhomboidity shall be measured at one End of Red-Hot Billet shall be measured through Non-Contact Type Vision Based Automatic Measurement System.
  • One Non-Contact Type Laser Sensor shall be used for Measurement of Vertical Bend, Horizontal Bend and Length Red Hot Billets.
  • Laser Sensor shall be Mounted on Instrument Plate of Linear Motion System having a Travel distance of about 13 M.
  • One Non-Contact Type Laser Sensor shall be used position feedback of Instrument Plate.
  • Motion System shall be fitted on a rigid precise aluminum Frame.
  • Motion System Frame shall be installed on the ground on MS Support Structure.
  • Laser Sensor shall be moved horizontally along full Billet full length of Billet to measure Vertical Bend, Horizontal Bend and Length of Billets.
  • Accuracy of measurement shall be about 1 mm
  • System for measurement Billet Cross Section dimensions shall be installed towards one end of Ends of Billet. It will measure Billet Width, Billet Height and shall calculate Rhomboidity parameters. Accuracy of measurement shall be 1mm.

  • The system shall have user friendly GUI.
  • Test Report shall be available as per client format and shall be stored on System Computer.
  • Historical Data can be retrieved based on various search criteria like date, PO, Operator, shift, Customer, batch number, barcode etc.
  • System shall be provided with adequate thermal protection to work reliably in hot surrounding environment up to at 80 Dec C.

Used Platform

LabVIEW: System Design Software: LabVIEW is a graphical programming platform that helps engineers scale from design to test and from small to large systems. It offers unprecedented integration with existing legacy software, IP, and hardware while capitalizing on the latest computing technologies. LabVIEW provides tools to solve today’s problems—and the capacity for future innovation—faster and more effectively.

One Platform, Infinite Possibilities: NI LabVIEW system design software is at the centre of the National Instruments platform. Providing comprehensive tools that you need to build any measurement or control application in dramatically less time, LabVIEW is the ideal development environment for innovation, discovery, and accelerated results. Combine the power of LabVIEW software with modular, reconfigurable hardware to overcome the ever-increasing complexity involved in delivering measurement and control systems on time and under budget.

Additional LabVIEW Benefits: Use the Right Approach to Solve Any Problem: Integrate graphical, text-based, and other programming approaches within a single environment to efficiently create custom software solutions. Deploy Software to the Right Hardware: Deploy your LabVIEW code to the right hardware, from desktop PCs to industrial computers to rugged embedded devices. Powerful Multithreaded Execution: Automatically take advantage of the performance benefits provided by multi-core processors. Record and Share Measurement Data: Save, present, and share your measurement results using different file type or report format.
