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.
    Saw blade alignment [zh]

    Saw blade alignment [zh]

    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 unnecessary scrap.

    In order to move large structures as bridges and buildings, the PolyDist system is the optimal solution. With up to 4 Dimetix sensors the process of moving is constantly monitored so that the structure can be moved and repositioned precisely.
    Monitoring of rockformation above railwaytrack [zh]

    Monitoring of rockformation above railwaytrack [zh]

    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 of pressure tunnel [zh]

    Monitoring of pressure tunnel [zh]

    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 historic tower [zh]

    Monitoring of historic tower [zh]

    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.
    Structural health monitoring [zh]

    Structural health monitoring [zh]

    In modern urban environments, heavy construction often must be conducted immediately adjacent to neighboring properties and structures that must remain open to business or residency during excavation and construction. Traditional surveying techniques allow for +/-5 mm precision of displacement, but Dimetix laser distance sensor technology allows for measurements with sub-millimeter accuracy at distances up to 500 m to detect any shift or displacement of structures.
    Bridge structural monitoring [zh]

    Bridge structural monitoring [zh]

    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.
    Measuring flood gate height [zh]

    Measuring flood gate height [zh]

    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.
    Supervision of railway infrastructure [zh]

    Supervision of railway infrastructure [zh]

    Accurate distance measurement is essential in railway construction – for new development as well for maintenance. Speed trains of the latest generation move at maximum speeds of over 300km/h. In order to preserve the rolling stock at such strains, millimeter precise measuring is inevitable.
    Floodgate position measurement [zh]

    Floodgate position measurement [zh]

    In this plant, Dimetix laser distance sensors are used to monitor floodgates. This means that the amount of water outflow is known at all times. The sensors measure the exact position of the floodgates in millimeter-precision and absolutely contactless.
