The identification success rate is 100%! The robot laser marking system developed in China was successfully put into use and accepted by Dongkuk Steel in South Korea.
On January 10, the robot laser marking system developed by a Chinese company was successfully put into use and accepted by Dongkuk Steel in South Korea. This project has been in stable operation for 30 consecutive days, and a total of 40,000 billets have been laser-marked. The marking success rate is 100%, and customers have highly recognized the equipment’s use effect.
It is reported that the cast slabs produced by South Korea’s Dongkuk Steel (Incheon Works) have always had equipment and production process problems, such as the product cannot be marked, resulting in the inability to track and manage the information of different batches of cast slabs, and chaotic information management.
To fundamentally solve the above problems and meet customer needs, the company’s technical team repeatedly communicated, negotiated, and tested with customers while overcoming language barriers. Based on actual scenarios and customer habits, the company’s technical team utilized its rich experience in robot applications, visual algorithms, and product identification. The implementation experience ultimately determines the best implementation plan for the project. The entire system includes functional modules such as automatic identification and judgment of cast slabs, descaling, spraying, and laser marking, realizing a fully automatic process of identifying slab information.
Among them, the automatic identification and judgment module uses self-developed algorithm software to realize the automatic judgment of unsprayed, unmarked, and empty slabs and transmits this information to the robot laser marking system to achieve fully automatic marking without manual participation in the entire process. , highly intelligent and highly recognized by customers.
Compared with traditional marking methods, robotic laser marking equipment has significant advantages
1. It has the advantages of neat calligraphy and painting, clear handwriting, and no broken pens, which is conducive to the identification of character recognition processes;
2. The logo content is richer
It overcomes the traditional identification method that can only mark English letters and characters. Laser marking can not only mark numbers and letters but also mark QR codes, barcodes and other features on products; test files such as DV and PV and project documents have low integrity;
3. The laser has a long life (100,000 hours), simple operation and easy maintenance;
4. Robotic laser marking equipment can directly mark the surface of the cast slab without spraying primer. There are no consumables such as paint, no worries about replacing paint and cleaning pipelines, and the later operating costs are lower.
The successful development of the robot laser marking system has further enriched the product categories of China’s intelligent manufacturing in the field of marking systems, providing customers with a wider range of choices.
At present, the robot laser marking equipment developed by DBM has also been applied to many steel companies, helping steel companies to move towards intelligence, digitalization and unmanned operation, and providing strong support for the sustainable development of enterprises.
