Identification of Defects in Cold Rolling – Pickle and CRM Challenges, Greg Gutmann, Account Manager – Metals, ISRA VISION PARSYTEC
This segment will explore strip surface defect detection challenges in pickling and cold rolling mills. Methods of detection on the heavily structured pickle surface will be addressed, looking at both line scan and area scan camera technologies. Defects can hide within material structure; understanding how to pull them out will be discussed. Cold rolling mills present a unique challenge in both space constraints and environment. Explore new methods to deploy automated inspection in cold rolling mills while overcoming the environmental challenges.

Innovative Optical Configuration to Increase Accuracy of Automatic Coil Grading, Mark Cornell and Chris Miller, Dr. Schenk

While automated optical inspection of metal surfaces such as cold-rolled and pickled products has grown increasingly powerful and versatile, the deployment of automatic coil grading systems has relied on mainly software techniques to increase coil grading confidence. This presentation will introduce a new optical configuration that directly facilitates increased accuracy and showcase examples of its usage.
