A COMPUTER SYSTEM FOR ACQUISITION AND ANALYSIS OF MEASUREMENT DATA FOR A SKEW ROLLING MILL IN MANUFACTURING STEEL BALLS


Abstract

The article presents the concept and capabilities of a computer system for analysing measurement data for a skew rolling mill used to produce steel balls. The computer system for data acquisition and analysis consists of cooperating systems designed to perform control and measurement tasks during the operation of a skew rolling mill. Their main task is to collect and record data related to the measured physical parameters of the batch rolling process. This system registers the current and analyses the radial forces and torque acting on the rolled element by the rolling tool. The process of data acquisition, analysis and archiving is carried out by means of an NI USB 6009 measuring card together with the attached systems of transducers and force and torque sensors and a computer with an installed application. The measurement application was developed in the LabVIEW environment. The application algorithm is based on the state machine architecture and enables the configuration of measurement elements and technical parameters, checking the functioning of the control and measurement system and the acquisition and archiving of measurement data.
