Non-magnetic and non-metallic inclusions occur because of many physical-chemical processes take place in molten and consolidated metal during production. Inclusions hidden to the human eye or current expensive technologies can appear as scratches on a metal sheet surface and can later lead to corrosion or other defects with ageing of the material.
Currently, there is no solution available to solve this issue. Inclusions and scratches – or simply put – defective material causes further issues in metal processing industry and could cause increased volume of claims, financial losses and loss of reputation – both for raw material producer and also for its processor. RVmagnetics introduces unique solution – MicroWire – sensing technology that is able to motitor and tag non-magnetic and non-metallic inclusions occurrence at the full production speed .
MicroWires are resistant to chemically and mechanically challenging environment. They are also short-circuit protected.
2. Non-destructive testing
MicroWires provide real-time data about the current condition of material and therefore allow non-destructive testing on all monitored points – opposed to destructive testing that is conducted on material samples only.
3. Passive sensor
Sensor requires no power source (only sensing device is low-powered)
4. Simple measuring process
sensing device is easy to connect solution that typically connects to Nucleo or Arduino
5. Contactless sensing
allows contactless sensing due to magnetic nature
6. Magnetic bi-stability
sensors are always in saturation. Noisy magnetic and electric fields do not influence the measurement
when sensor brakes, two sensors and two measurements are obtained
MicroWires can sense the temperature, stress, position, magnetic field, flow, electrical current etc.
9. Temperature range
sensor is able to withstand the temperatures from –273 to 600°C
10. Real time data monitoring
up to 10.000 x per second
11. Data transfer
data from the sensing device are sent via USB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Z-wave, SigFox etc.
