Measurement and Controls

Presenter: Keith Donahue

11:00 am - 11:30 am


This presentation examines measurement and controls for hot rod rolling, wiredrawing, extrusion, insulation, and jacketing. It discusses the requirements of each process for measurement of diameter, shape and profile, temperature, eccentricity, capacitance, surface defects, spark faults, wall thickness, and length and line speed. It also describes the technologies available to address these needs, including laser scanning, X-ray systems, multi-axis scanning, infrared “heat flow” sensors, and ultrasonic technology. The course also outlines advantages and disadvantages of these solutions.
