Non-contact and vision-based measurements for metal production industry



Marco Tarabini

Politecnico di Milano, Italy


Around 15% of the greenhouse gas emission is coming from the steel, aluminum and metal production industries. Companies operating in these fields must therefore identify measures to reduce the energy expenditure of the production plants to meet the requirements of carbon neutrality in 2050.
As a matter of fact, measurements play a fundamental role for the process optimization, since they allow to reduce the material waste, to diminish the energy requirements and to quantify the effect of process regulations.
The special session will focus on metrological aspects and data analysis procedures for non-contact dimensional measurements dedicated to industries operating in the field of metal production and transformation. Authors are strongly encouraged to present works focused on laser systems, camera-based systems and non-invasive methods in general.


Marco Tarabini (Lecco, Italy, in 1978) received the M.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering and the Ph.D. cum laude in engineering of mechanical systems from Politecnico di Milano, Milano, Italy. He is currently Associate Professor of Mechanical and Thermal measurement at Politecnico di Milano. His research is focused on different aspect of vibration measurements, spanning from the study of the response of the human body to vibration to the development of measurement systems for industrial application. In the field of human vibration, he developed measurement systems, data analysis procedures and biomechanical models to better interpret the response of the body to hand-arm and whole-body vibration. He developed and commissioned to industries different measurement systems for monitoring mechanical and thermal parameters of machineries. He authored more than 100 scientific publications and lead more 30 research projects on measurements in cooperation with industries.
