Description

The ultrasonic monitoring system described in this work was installed in a copper plate mill which use to have a series of mechanical thickness and width gauging devices. Those devices were taken out of use due to lack of maintenance. The operators empirically learnt to adjust mill controls in order to obtain copper strip within client specifications. This operation lead to a strong dependency on the operator’s skills, along with limitations in the quality of the final product. With the purpose of evaluating the factibility of automizing the process, an ultrasonic thickness and width gauging monitoring system was designed. The knowledge of these two parameters is an essential part in the quality control of the process of fabrication of copper strip.
