Development of multiple applications based on new magnetic sensors in steel industries - Demams

18.06.2004


The target of the project was to develop new magnetic sensors to help measure process variables in steel production, such as velocity or elongation.

Uniovi developed high sensitive magnetic sensors for a harsh environment.

A non-contact speed-measuring device based on the developed sensor was installed in the continuous annealing line of Aceralia. The system used a magnetic marker and two sensors separated more than 2 cm from the strip, working on a differential principle to improve accuracy. A more or less 0.5% accuracy figure was obtained additionally the line deceleration system has been improved.



The measuring principle is based on counting the time taken by the magnetic mark to cross the distance between marker and sensor (CSM), or two sensors (Aceralia) . The BFI principle is based on computing a phase shift of several waves of th esame frequency embedded in the distance. A PLL keeps the frequency at its correct value.

in skin-pass mills, thickness reductions of as low as 0.1% are normal, resulting in the corresponding velocity increase, therefore a very high resolution was required.

BFI and CSM developed an elongation measuring system for skin-pass mills. CSM used the technology provided by Uniovi whilst BFI used PLL-based technology, but, in both, the equation of mass flow conservation was considered.

CSM obtained a more or less 1.0% accuracy figure in a mill processing ferritic stainless steel.

Although the system proved to be affected by the effect of surrounding magnetic fields and by magnetic mark speading, following some recommendations and improvements, the system could be interesting for industrial use.

Im Focus: A step towards controlling spin-dependent petahertz electronics by material defects

The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.

Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...

Im Focus: Freiburg researcher investigate the origins of surface texture

Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.

Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...

Im Focus: Making the internet more energy efficient through systemic optimization

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently completed a 5-year research project looking at how to make fibre optic communications systems more energy efficient. Among their proposals are smart, error-correcting data chip circuits, which they refined to be 10 times less energy consumptive. The project has yielded several scientific articles, in publications including Nature Communications.

Streaming films and music, scrolling through social media, and using cloud-based storage services are everyday activities now.

Im Focus: New synthesis methods enhance 3D chemical space for drug discovery

After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis -- carbon-hydrogen functionalization -- scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their most recent work -- a streamlined process for making a three-dimensional scaffold of keen interest to the pharmaceutical industry.

"Our tools open up whole new chemical space for potential drug targets," says Huw Davies, Emory professor of organic chemistry and senior author of the paper.
