Dimetix laser distance sensors can be used to remotely monitor sluice and flood gate position, minimizing the need for visual verification in remote locations. Dimetix lasers offer several methods of communicating to control systems commonly used in dam and hydropower applications.
DIMETIX USA 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.
When using a large saw blade for cutting different materials, the blade frequently shifts out of alignment for a number of reasons, especially when squaring the heads while making an adjustment or changing the blade. As a consequence, cuts are made at the wrong angle, often resulting in unnecessary reworking and scrap.
Dimetix sensors have the range and accuracy to measure a variety of roll sizes as production moves through the mill without adjustment and without contact. The lasers are maintenance free and provide a reliable, repeatable, and cost effective alternative to string potentiometers, transducers, ultrasonic sensors, and manual tape measure readings.
