UNIVIB Hosts Technical Seminar in Taiwan
Dr. Youssef Benhafsi recently travelled to Taiwan to present a seminar on the subject of measurement and control of vibration of machinery used in the strip metals industry.
The seminar was arranged as part of the UKTI's Access to International Markets (AIM) programme and was attended by delegates from a number of Taiwan's largest steel and aluminium producers. They were iinformed about the different types of vibration problems that are typically experienced when operating rolling mills, roll grinding machines, tension levellers and other similar types of machinery used to produce flat strip.
The seminar included subjects such as how to identify and solve problems of vibration when grinding and how to use on-line vibration monitoring systems to manage unwanted vibrations occurring when rolling.
A number of factory visits were also undertaken during Youssef's trip.
