The gap between a mould broad plate and its narrow plate is known as the mould corner gap, it is critical that the mould corner gap does not increase during steady state casting. We have Keyence GT2-H32 measurement sensor that we wish to install on the mould so that online measurements can be taken during casting.
Due to the environment, comprising of heat, steam and dust the sensor will need to be house in an enclosure that protects the sensor while still allowing movement of the mould broad plate to be detected. The enclosure shall allow for connection of cooling air that shall be supplied from the existing pneumatic air network. This Project shall design, prototype and test enclosure to protect the sensor during the casting process.
