Automated diameter & width measurement
An exact measurement is extremely important when positioning and dimensioning paper rolls. The Dimetix laser distance sensors measure the width of the paper roll using two sensors on each side of the paper roll.
Bridge structural monitoring
Dimetix helped make history in 2010 by collaborating with Applied Geomechanics, Inc. to develop a system to monitor the lift and placement of steel bridge truss sections on the Huey P. Long Bridge over the Mississippi River in New Orleans.
The project involved transportation by river barge, lifting, and placement of the pre-assembled bridge truss spans to reduce stress on the bridge and minimize interruption of traffic. Ten DLS-C laser distance sensors were lifted aboard the 2,700 ton trusses and were used in conjunction with specially fabricated targets and software developed to monitor beam deflection during the day long lift.
Controlling of the filling and pour of steel and iron
Dimetix sensors were installed in a foundry to monitor the filling of hot steel and iron. With the aid of the sensors the level can be measured and an overflow can be avoided.
Glass panel position measurement
In order to transport glass panels, they are positioned after production from a conveyor line onto a pallet. To prevent a glass breakage, a system with DIMETIX sensors was developed, which precisely monitors the positioning.
Laser controlled cut off solution
Increasing operational demands, maintenance requirements, and the growing importance of efficiency are factors in nearly all industries. This is relevant in the metals production industry, and especially true for the small to midsized companies at the heart of the fabrication & metalworking, where laser measurement technology provides an economical approach to reducing production delays and improving quality, as well as an affordable technological advantage helping to increase efficiency.
Length positioning of Woodbinders
Spruce wood has been produced at our customers facility for decades with great care and professional competence and is not a freely interchangeable product. Because the big difference is in countless details that have been perfected over the many years.
Our customer has the most modern know-how for the production of cuttings for a wide range of applications such as planking, timber construction, roof constructions, pallet production etc.
Dimetix lasers are used daily. The truss length is used for positioning and to enhance their operational efficiency.
Lifting of mining equipment
In a mining application, Dimetix laser distance sensors have been used to ensure an accurate lifting and lowering process of the superstructure. In the case of a deviation, a signal was sent to the hydraulic system so that it could be corrected again.
Measuring flood gate height
The ability to reliably and precisely monitor flood gate height is a challenge for hydropower and reservoir flood gate operators. Dimetix laser sensors can be used for remote monitoring of the flood gates. The sensors measure the distance to the surface of the flood gates.
Monitoring of historic tower
In historic buildings the fabric can often be damaged. With the aid of a monitoring concept which includes Dimetix sensors, the movements of historical buildings are monitored and examined.
Monitoring of pressure tunnel
An automatic monitoring system was used in a headwater pressure tunnel to measure the passive bias of penstocks during injections. As soon as the limit values were exceeded, an alarm lamp illuminated, so that the injections could be stopped.
Monitoring of rockformation above railwaytrack
Dimetix sensors are used to monitor a debris flow activity. These rocks can lead to the accumulation of a mountain stream, which can lead to a flooding of a rail track. In addition, two additional lasers are used to monitor a large boulder that moves downhill and puts a village in danger.
Monitoring transfer car position
In a steel production facility, large transfer cars transported glowing steel plates. Due to a malfunction of the micro-switches, the cars collided at the end of a transfer line. With the help of two Dimetix lasers integrated in protective housings, a smooth production could be restored.
Moving of large structures
In order to move large structures as bridges and buildings, the PolyDist system is the optimal solution. With up to 4 DLS-C / FLS-C sensors the process of moving is constantly monitored so that the structure can be moved and repositioned precisely.
Rock surveillance tsunami warning
In Norway an early warning system was developed using 3 Dimetix sensors. These measure daily the movements of rocks above a bay. Thus, a warning can be triggered in the event of a landslide.
Saw blade alignement
Large saw blades used for cutting different materials frequently shift out of alignment, resulting in cuts at the wrong angle and unnecessary reworking and scrap. A
maintenance free laser distance sensor saw blade alignment system provided a reliable,repeatable, and cost effective means of improving production quality and eliminating
