OMC - Software picture processing of furnace camera pictures

With Optical Melting Control software STG has created a tool with the ability for energy saving and quality control. Image processing and statistical analysis provides wide range of information to use in the process control system as additional process variables.


Features
  • Continuous input from the furnace camera and subsequent analyzing the pictures
  • Recognition and classification of the objects
    • Batch
    • Foam
    • Bubbling
    • Image errors
    • Additional classes
  • Usable with all typical type of furnaces
  • Determination of several process variables:
    • Batch coverage
    • Batch density
    • Melting gradient
    • Max. expansion of batch coverage
    • Standard deviation and coefficient of variation of batch size
    • Size of whole batch surface
    • Identifying, if surface of the batch covered area is below/ above average
    • Spread area
  • Quantified observation of the melting process
  • Transmit the processed data to process control system
  • Creating long-term data archives for processed data
  • Internationalized interface

  • Scope of supply
  • Providing and installation of Software
  • Implementation into existing Furnace Control
  • Individual control strategy (STG Energy Control, STG Lambda Control)
    Patent WO2012/038482 A1- temperature- und symmetry control
  • Regular system maintenance

  • System requirements
  • PC with Windows 7
  • Framegrabber, connected with furnace camera
  • Implementation into existing Process Control System via OPC to existing PLC

  • User Interface
  • Adaptive interface with dynamic views
  • Modular structure allows dynamic configuration of the processing steps and system extension
  • Process logging
  • Management of the long-term archives (Monitoring/Filtering/Delete)
  • System settings customizable with a configuration manager
