Task: The yarn speed is to be measured on a plain stitch circular knitting machine. This type of machine is usually used to produce simple knitted products such as T-shirts and underwear. In this case, a typical single jersey T-shirt is being knitted.
Application report - Determining the optimum ignition timing using a portable stroboscope RT STROBE pocketLED with trigger
Task: Construction of a test stand for capturing ignition point and determine stability/repeatability. The tools for this task are: A stroboscope RT STROBE pocketLED A4-3200 with external trigger input and a conventional clamp meter.
Task: For monitoring the reaction speed of centrifugal releases, speed measurement in steam locomotives and battery-powered locomotives. In particular, checking the permanently installed speed measuring devices and the emergency releases (brakes) is carried out with the mechanical hand-tachometer.
Application report - Demonstration model "Oscillating Reed" with stationary stroboscope RT STROBE qbLEDs
Task: For a local museum, the task was to develop a demonstration model for an oscillating accordion reed to expand its exhibition of lfM. The museum visitors should be shown optically, how to achieve sound inside accordions, harmoniums and harmonicas.
Application report - Fan speed measurement and inspection Tachometer control with portable stroboscope RT STROBE pocketLED LASER
Task: When measuring the wheel rotational speed, it is important to calibrate the tachometer or prove that the determined maximum speed is reached. When measuring the ventilator rotational speed...
Application report - Metal extraction from waste incineration residues with portable stroboscope RT STROBE qbLED
Task: After burning household and commercial waste, there are several types of residue in the slag including ash, clay and glass shards as well as metals. Magnetic metals are relatively easy to regain. However, for non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, brass and copper as well as precious metals, this is much more difficult.
Application report - Quality control of measuring devices for clinical diagnostics with customized modification of portable stroboscope RT STROBE pocketLED T
Task: When manufacturing measuring devices for clinical diagnostics, an enzymatic amperometric bio-sensor is the heart of manufacturing. During the project, a process should be developed for the automated manufacture of these reusable sensors.
Application report - Quality assurance within the paper industry with portable stroboscope RT STROBE qbLED
Task: The surrounding conditions during paper production have very high requirements on material and machine. The challenge is to find a device which can be used in many different conditions in the paper industry.
Task: To examine the whole operating environment of a Francis turbine, various operating curves are followed and the related measured values are recorded which supply the information for calculating the machines’ properties.
Task: The rotational speed of the bone shaver is measured and adjusted accordingly using hall sensors. During various tests in the development phase, it is necessary to execute a reference measurement for the hall sensor measurement without any stress. In the future, the use of a stroboscope during manufacturing and in the later maintenance is planned.
Application report - Quality control of printing machines with stationary stroboscope RT STROBE 10000 LED
Task: On an 8-colour flexographic printing press, there is a web inspection system whereby several individual frames are automatically sent to a monitor every second over the entire width of the material using a mobile camera.
Task: An electric motor is to be checked regularly in accordance with an internal maintenance regulation. This inspection also includes the measurement of the speed and the inspection of the fan blades.
