Abstract: Sub-pixel positioning is a key technology in geometry measurement field. Reckoning on the low accuracy of ordinary polynomial interpolation for sub-pixel positioning method because of losing the position of edge points, an improved Sobel edge detection method is first proposed, and then is applied to the thickness measurement system of cable sheath material. The experiment shoes that the edge coordinateonthe detected by our proposed interpolation method is more colse to the real edge than the original method.

Abstract: Steel rolling occupies a very important position in the iron and steel industry. The thickness of the steel plate is a crucial index of the quality, so the automatic detection system for high-precision thickness of the steel industry has a vital significance. The traditional thickness instruments have X-ray thickness gauge and ultrasonic thickness meter while the X-ray thickness gauge has radiation which is harmful to human body and ultrasonic thickness has a lower precision. For these shortcomings, a high precision thickness gauge by laser sensor was designed. Presented the differential measurement method based on laser displacement sensor. Then using TMS320F2812 as main control chip designed the hardware of the system. Finally, software programming was completed based on the hardware design. By experiment research, the results show that the laser thickness gauge has advantages of high precision and high reliability. It has a high practical value.

Abstract: This paper presents a high-precision, non-destructive measurement system for determining the thickness and refractive indices of birefringent optical wave plates. Significantly, the proposed method enables the two refractive indices of the optical sample to be measured simultaneously. The performance of the proposed system is verified using a commercial quartz optical wave plate with known refractive indices of 1.5518 e n = and 1.5427 o n = , respectively, and a thickness of 452.1428 μm. The experimentally determined values of the refractive indices are found to be 1.55190 e n = and 1.54281 o n = , respectively, while the thickness is found to be 452.189 μm, corresponding to an experimental error of approximately 0.046 μm. The measurement resolution of the proposed system exceeds that of the interferometer hardware itself and provides a simple yet highly accurate means of measuring the principal optical parameters of birefringent glass wave plates.

Abstract: While it is important that evaluation of thickness of a product made with press working to evaluate a mold, currently, there is not an appropriate system which can measure thickness of a free curved plate. The study deals with a development of an automatic measurement and evaluation system for thickness of free curved plates, called Orthros. The system measures thickness of a plate with laser displacement gauges and an industrial robot. While the system has been capable for measurement of a relatively simple shaped workpiece, it had collisions between laser-path and workpiece for that of a complicated shape, owing to a geometrical limit about measuring posture of the gauges. In this article, a new method to detect collision and to avoid collision by changing measuring posture on the basis of CAD data is proposed. In the method, not only the geometrical characteristic of the laser-path but also the measuring error characteristic of the gauges depending on the measuring posture are considered and continuous measuring path having change in posture to avoid collision is devised. From the experiment result, it is confirmed that the proposed method has an ability to measure a thickness of a workpiece with complicated shape.

Abstract: Single stage injection blow moulding process, without preform storage and reheat, could be run on a standard injection moulding machine, with the aim of producing short series of specific hollow parts. In this process, the preform is being blow moulded after a short cooling time. Polypropylene (Random copolymer) is a suitable material for this type of process. The preform has to remain sufficiently melted to be blown. This single stage process introduces temperature gradients, molecular orientation, high stretch rates and high cooling rates. These constraints lead to a small processing window, and in practice, the process takes place between the melting temperature and the crystallization temperature. To investigates the mechanical behaviour in conditions as close to the process as possible, we ran a series of experiments: First, Dynamical Mechanical Analysis was performed starting from the solid state at room temperature and ending in the vicinity of the melting temperature. Conversely, oscillatory rheometry was also performed starting this time from the molten state at 200°C and decreasing the temperature down to the vicinity of the crystallization temperature. The influence of the shear rate and of the cooling kinetics on the enhancement of the mechanical properties when starting from the melt is discussed. This enhancement is attributed to the crystallization of the material. The question of the crystallization occurring at such high stretch rates and high cooling rates is open. A viscous Cross model has been proved to be relevant to the problem. Thermal dependence is assumed by an Arrhenius law. The process is simulated through a finite element code (POLYFLOW software) in the Ansys Workbench framework. Thickness measurements using image analysis are performed and comparison with the simulation results is satisfactory.

Abstract: Pulsed eddy current (PEC) technique has been successfully used for measuring wall thinning of carbon steel equipments without removal of the insulation. In field applications, the probe performance decreases in presence of ferromagnetic claddings. This paper presents a method based on saturation magnetization to solve this problem. The main principle of this method is to weaken the magnetic shielding effect of the cladding by magnetizing it to saturation. A U-shaped magnetizer is designed to realize this method. Contrast experiments are performed on a Q235 steel plate covered by a galvanized steel cladding. The experiment results show that the thickness measurement range and lift-off range are increased by applying this method to the common PEC probe.
