Image processing

GMT focuses on the future of industrial image processing technologies.

Process-know-how meets contemporary image processing

In rolling and forging plants, image processing solutions are increasingly used for surveying, quality control and process tracking. In cooperation with the Society for the Advancement of Applied Computer Science e. V. GMT develops

  • optical measurement systems for forged and rolled products,
  • automated embossed number detection systems and
  • systems for material tracking.

An optical bar counter has been developed to monitor the cooling bed handler and has been coupled to the material tracking in a bar mill. In cooperation with an image processing company, a system for automated embossed number detection has been developed as well. The system is installed on the cold side of a pusher type furnace of a bar mill and ensures the complete monitoring of the billets in order to avoid material mix-up.
