Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: This paper presents the development of a prototype to assist the inspection, repair and calibration of mechanical sleeves. The system integrates a mechanical device and the underlying software in which the main data acquisition is carried out through a force sensor. Specific hardware, based on the Arduino platform, and dedicated software based on C programming language was designed. A user interface was developed in order to register and store the fulfilled tests. The system allowed to optimize the performance and the efficiency of a manufacturing unit, which, until now, was done using a manual procedure.


Keywords: Sleeve, Nozzle, Force sensor, Arduino, Control system.
