Two-point measurement reduces non-productive times

Quality control integrated into the production process makes time-consuming manual measurements superfluous.

Two-point measurement reduces non-productive times

The two opposing probes detect the diameter of the rotating part with high precision.

At EMO, GEORG will be presenting the integrated two-point measurement system for horizontal machining centers of its ultraturn MC series. These machines process workpieces weighing 10 tons and more and with diameters of 1,000 mm upwards. No other manufacturer in the world combines machining and measuring in a single unit of such size.

With the two-point measurement, GEORG has for the first time integrated quality control directly into the manufacturing process: ultraturn MC is worldwide the first series of machining centers for large turned parts in which the diameters of the workpiece are not measured with just one probe, as has been common practice so far. Instead, GEORG uses a travelling two-point measuring system attached to the frame, which automatically measures the workpieces directly in the machine with two opposing probes. This technique ensures high precision and high reproducibility.

ultraturn MC machines are used among other things for the complete machining of turbine and generator rotors as well as crankshafts.

While a measuring team would need several hours to manually measure the diameters or the axial run-out of workpieces on the machine, the measurement with the integrated two-point system is completed after just a few minutes. By integrating this function into the machine, GEORG is a worldwide pioneer.

The two-point measuring system which GEORG is demonstrating at the trade fair on a machining center of the ultraturn MC series is also applicable to the company“s classic lathe series for roll and turbine rotor machining. Furthermore the system can be retrofitted to existing lathes – to those made by GEORG or other manufacturers. Just recently, GEORG has successfully retrofitted a two-point measuring system to a lathe in operation for several years at Siemens in Mülheim/Germany.

Jan Ebener, sales manager for machine tools at GEORG, explains the great economic benefits of the integrated measurement: „Experience gained from the operation of the first systems using our two-point measurement technique shows that not only the dimensional precision of the workpieces is increased but that also the overall machining times are markedly reduced. This is because the new measurement technique drastically reduces non-productive times.“

Like the large machines of the ultraturn MC type, designed to machine parts of up to 250 t weight, also the smaller ones are based on the classic GEORG concept: robust cast construction – instead of the frequently common welded construction – and hydrostatically guided axles. The result: high precision in machining, low maintenance and long lifetime.

Heinrich Georg Maschinenfabrik reduces manufacturing time of large and complex workpieces by weeks

New Horizontal Machining Center for workpieces of 12 up to 250 tons of weight

Heinrich Georg Maschinenfabrik reduces manufacturing time of large and complex workpieces by weeks

The ultraturn MC is installed deep in the ground

On a customer day, GEORG introduced the new Machining Center „ultraturn MC“ to manufacturing experts. More than 80 specialists of large part manufacturers came to Kreuztal to witness the premier of the new machine, which is able to handle workpieces from 12 up to 250 tons. The ultraturn MC offers plenty of innovations, which combine highest precision during the machining process with optimum productivity and flexibility. For such large-size parts, the machine reduces the manufacturing time by up to 40 per cent. The integrated 2-point-workpiece measuring system as well as the complete machine enclosure set new standards.

GEORG has developed the new Horizontal Machining Center ultraturn MC for complete machining of workpieces with diameters of 1.100 up to 4.000 mm and almost any length. The center width of the system introduced during the customer day is 10.000 mm. The machine will soon be delivered to its German customer, two more Machining Centers have been ordered by companies in Russia and the Czech Republic.

The ultraturn MC is designed for the machining of complex, heavy workpieces, e.g. for heavy forged parts, rolls, turbines, motor and generator shafts as well as for compressors or pumps for the oil and gas industry. Internal machining of components, such as turning-milling machining or processing of complex inside contours, which are not parallel to the workpiece center line is one of the main characteristics.

New in this range: One machine replaces several others

The ultraturn MC saves a lot of production time since the complete machining, e.g. turning, drilling, milling or grinding and also the measuring is carried out on the same machine. There are no more time-consuming transports between different machines necessary so far as well as associated waiting and set-up times.

By implementing different work steps on one machine, the ultraturn MC not only reduces the production time but also the transport risks of the complex and expensive workpieces. The result: significantly increased and ensured quality of the finished workpieces as well as optimized production planning and scheduling.

Highest productivity with short downtimes and set-up times is the main focus of the new concept. All tool changing processes are carried out automatically, which is a novelty for machines of this size. The tools are stored in the so called tool arena and changed via a six-axis robot which is moving together with the machining unit. This results in minimum access and processing times. Also, the attachment heads in the pick-up magazine are changed automatically and within shortest time.

The machine achieves highest precision due to the 2.000 mm wide machine beds, the hydrostatic guideways of all linear axes and backlash-free NC-controlled drives.

GEORG offers the ultraturn MC in several versions with center widths up to 25.000 mm. The machine presented during the customer day has a center width of 10.000 mm. On the carriage side in S1-operation, the center achieves a milling performance of up to 94 kW and a torque of max. 7.000 Nm directly at the spindle. The carriage is equipped with a hydrostatic guided RAM with a cross section of 700 x 550 mm and a travel distance of 1.600 mm.

New: Machining and measuring without reclamping

With the ultraturn MC GEORG includes the quality control in the production process which is new in the area of large parts machining. The ultraturn MC is the first machining center worldwide, which is not only using a single probe. The moving 2-point workpiece measuring system installed at the milling tower acts like a big micrometer gauge with two probes and measures the workpieces directly at the machine with highest precision. While the measuring of large diameters up to 2.000 mm in measuring machines takes several hours, the integrated GEORG system requires only a few minutes.

New: Complete housing

Also the complete machine enclosure with integrated oil mist removal system is new for exceptionally big machining centers: Nearly no oil mist will exhaust into the shop. Furthermore, the ultraturn MC requires very little space because the enclosure covers the workpiece and the machine itself very tight. The complete machine is mounted deep in the ground so that all components are accessible without steps.

Heinrich Georg Maschinenfabrik: First roll grinder for cold mill rolls

Grinding of work rolls in the metallurgical industry

Heinrich Georg Maschinenfabrik: First roll grinder for cold mill rolls

The new roll grinding machine ultragrind 700 R

At the occasion of a customer day Georg presented its new roll grinding machine type ultragrind 700 R to an experienced audience. The new machine is designed for center lengths of 5.000 mm, grinding diameters of up to 700 mm and roll weights up to 10 tons. The machine works fully automatically and impresses by its high grinding qualities in conventional and CBN grinding. Due to many special design solutions, its very solid structure and innovative measuring technologies the machine achieves highest precision and at the same time shortest setting and machining cycles.

More than 70 experts from roll grinding shops of leading steel and aluminium producers as well as experts from roll manufacturers and engineering offices came to see the machine in „live“ operation prior to dispatch to the customer Baosteel, China. At first Georg demonstrated the grinding of a work roll in the conventional way and later in CBN technology. In addition Georg displayed a HSS work roll of a hot rolling mill with CVC profile and a profile height of 1,85 mm that had been ground before with a CBN disc.

During the demonstrations the visitors could inspect the high quality of the machine. Everyone was impressed by the perfect surface quality of the ground rolls, neither comma nor feed marks could be detected. They confirmed that whilst the grinding operations took place no vibrations or swing motions of the machine could be felt and that the machine was running very smooth; this applies to the conventional and to the CBN grinding method as well.

A number of design measures enable Georg to reach excellent grinding results, short handling and machining cycles as well as a long lifetime of the machine. Just to mention the headstock that can be displaced as a whole with fixed main axis and displaceable counter part, the hydrostatic bearing of the grinding spindle and the grinding carriage, the very precise U-axis with a resolution of 0,01 µm, the U1-axis for exact horizontal roll alignment and finally the complete equipment of measuring and control techniques.

Several presentations completed the program of the customer day. Dr. Severin Hannig, MD of planlauf GmbH, Aachen presented new methods for design calcuations and simulations of machine tools, that Georg had applied for the new machine. Hannes Moser (Tyrolit Schleifmittelwerk) and Gerrit Burkhard (Theleico Schleiftechnik) spoke about the optimum usage of grinding discs. Both of them reported about the application of CBN grinding discs, which inspite of higher investment costs may be even more economical when grinding HSS rolls.

LumaSense Releases New Pyrometry System for MOCVD Processes in LED Production

Temperature sensing solution for metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (GaN-based epitaxy) with true wafer surface temperature and reflectance instrumentation improves efficiency and yield in LED industry

LumaSense Releases New Pyrometry System for MOCVD Processes in LED Production

LumaSenseInc.com: New Pyrometry System for MOCVD Processes in LED Production

LumaSense Technologies, Inc. released the UV 400 and UVR 400 pyrometers, the newest generation of non-contact temperature measurement instrumentation for metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) processes in the rapidly growing LED industry ( http://www.lumasenseinc.com/EN/products/infrared-thermometers-and-switches/specials/pyrometer-uv-400-and-uvr-400.html ). The UV 400 and UVR 400 are in a unique position to help manufacturers using MOCVD improve efficiency and reduce waste in their LED manufacturing process.

Using a center wavelength in the UV spectrum (400 nm) these pyrometers make it possible to measure real wafer surface temperature, while traditional pyrometers are only able to measure the susceptor/pocket temperature under the wafer. This allows the most accurate and repeatable control of the wafer temperature which e. g. in LED production is critical to the final product wavelength and manufacturing yields. The wide temperature range of 650 to 1300 °C allows for measurement of various applications such as GaN buffer layer growth or multiple quantum well growth. The fast response time of up to 8 ms allows the measurement of fast processes. True photon-counting instrumentation guarantees the best achievable signal to noise ratio and stability. In addition to the UV 400 pyrometer, the UVR 400 features a 635 nm laser reflectometer, which enables the real-time measurement of the thickness and growth rate of the GaN layer (gallium nitride) during epitaxy growth.

LED’s are on a trajectory to take over as the primary source in the $60 billion lighting industry by 2020, and are a key enabler in displays for mobile devices, televisions and other products in the growing $1.2 trillion electronics industry. „With an 8,000+ system-installed base in the semiconductor industry and a nearly 2,000 MOCVD tool-installed base, LumaSense is without doubt a leader in temperature instrumentation in this industry,“ said Brett Sargent, Vice President and General Manager, Products & Solutions, LumaSense Technologies Inc. „The UV 400 and UVR 400 are now setting a new standard for MOCVD measurement all around the world as the instruments have proven to provide temperature measurements with reliable correlation between the measured process temperature and the final product wavelength. This will result in unparalleled yield gains and efficiency improvements for our customers.“

The LumaSense UV 400 and UVR 400 temperature sensors are developed specifically for GaN-based MOCVD epitaxy processes offering the following features: direct temperature measurement on the GaN layer using UV wavelength instrumentation to obtain reliable wafer temperature with PL wavelength correlation, capturing real time reflectance measurement using a fast pulsing light source, prevention of data skew due to delayed sampling (no shutter on and off) and residue temperature oscillation as seen in NIR emissivity-compensated pyrometers, minimization of noise in measurement using true photocounting instrumentation, and yield improvement through accurate true wafer temperature measurement. The new LumaSense pyrometers for MOCVD processes (metalorganic vapour phase epitaxy) in LED Production, UV 400 and UVR 400, can also be combined with the well-proven PhotriX pyrometer with concentric lightpipe from LumaSense to additionally control the reactor temperature. Either the UV 400 and UVR 400 alone, or in combination with the PhotriX pyrometer, provide the best possible measuring data and process control solution, as well as the best product quality and improved yield.

LumaSense Introduces New Digital IR Pyrometer for Non-Contact Temperature Measurement in Thin and Flat Glass Manufacturing Processes

LumaSenseInc.com: Pyrometer for Non-Contact Temperature Measurement on Thin and Flat Glass Sheets (Impac IN 6/78-L)

The IN 6/78-L pyrometer uses a special wavelength of 7.8 µm (micrometre) to measure glass sheets below 1 mm thickness and is the most recent addition to LumaSense’s Impac IR pyrometry and digital infrared thermometer portfolio

LumaSense Technologies, Inc. adds the specialized IN 6/78-L to their IMPAC pyrometer portfolio for use in the production of thin and thinnest glass sheets ( http://www.lumasenseinc.com/EN/products/infrared-thermometers-and-switches/series-6/pyrometer-impac-in-6-78-l.html ). The IN 6/78-L uses a 7.8 µm (micrometre) wavelength for temperature measurements between 400 °C and 1100 °C allowing for accurate and reliable measurement on glass with thickness below 1 mm.

This instrument sets new standards for stress-free glass production on manufacturing lines around the world. The sensor design is based on a full digital core for a wide temperature range and high accuracy. The small form factor and robust design allows for easy integration into the process, even in harsh environments. The IN 6/78-L is equipped with specially designed and coated high-end optics to reduce the effect of ambient reflectance and guarantee the best possible accuracy. The RS485-to-USB connection allows to connect the pyrometer to a PC and adjust the pyrometer parameters using the included InfraWin software. The software also provides temperature indication, data logging, and analysis features. When used in combination with the InfraWin software, the IN 6/78-L paints a more-accurate picture for identifying potential issues before they lead to problems that impact process performance.
