  • Publication number: 20160180269
    Abstract: In an energy-saving-operation recommending system, a total energy consumption of plural facilities during passage of one material to be rolled through a rolling line is calculated, and the total energy consumption is divided by a width and a length of the material to be rolled before rolling to calculate an energy consumption reference value that defines energy consumption per unit width and unit length of the material to be rolled. The energy consumption reference value is stored in association with a steel grade and a target post-rolling plate thickness of the material to be rolled. An energy consumption reference value corresponding to a steel grade and a target post-rolling plate thickness of a material to be next rolled on the rolling line is obtained. The energy consumption reference value is multiplied by a width and a length of the material to be next rolled to calculate predicted energy consumption.

  • Publication number: 20100018270
    Abstract: This invention matches the material quality of a product to target data, even when a materials quality model is insufficient in prediction accuracy. Heating a metallic material, rolling, forging, or leveling the metallic material, and cooling the metallic material are each conducted at least once. Prior to manufacture of a metallic product of a desired size and shape, qualitative data of the metallic material are measured at a position by a materials quality sensor in a manufacturing line, and modifications based on measured data are made to heating, processing, or cooling conditions in at least one of the steps, upstream of the materials measured data sensor so that the quality of the metallic material at the measuring position agrees with target data.

  • Patent number: 6828961
    Abstract: A display system (200) in which light from source (202) is focused onto a spinning color wheel (204). The spinning color wheel (204) spins at a constant rate and creates of beam of light that changes from one primary color to the next in rapid sequence. The primary colored beam of light impinges a spatial light modulator (206), which is often a DMD or LCD. A controller (208) receives an input video signal and determines the native frame rate of the image source. The controller (208) sends image data to the spatial light modulator (206) in synchronization with the color wheel (204)—image data representing the red portions of the image is sent during the period in which the red color filter is passing through the beam of light—at the native frame rate of the image source. The modulated light is focused onto an image plane (210) by projection lens (212) to form an image. The eye of the viewer integrates the sequential primary color images giving the perception of a single full-color image.

  • Publication number: 20030099114
    Abstract: A disk box with a flashing circuit comprises a box seat, a positioning disk, and an upper cover. A circuit board with light emitting diodes and batteries are installed at a bottom side of the box seat. A lateral side and a flat portion at an end of a positioning disk are adhered with drawings. Thereby, by above structure, the positioning disk may cover the box seat, and then the upper cover covers the positioning disk so as to be formed as a disk box. Thereby, as the user presses the push button so that power of the battery flows to the circuit board to conduct the light emitting diodes, a flash effect will present to inform the user to keep attention.

  • Patent number: 6529211
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for selectively scaling portions of image data based on the intensity levels of historical image data. The selective scaling, or level expansion, provides improved images by increasing or decreasing the intensity of a portion of image pixels. Black level expansion reduces the intensity of dark pixels and is appropriate when a relatively large number of the image pixels have a high intensity level. White level expansion increases the intensity of bright pixels and is appropriate when a relatively large number of image pixels have a low intensity level. Level expansion is implemented by using histogram comparators 402 to compare the intensity of each pixel with a threshold, typically on a frame-by-frame basis. When an adequate number of pixels in each frame meet the threshold criteria, the level expansion is increased. Field accumulator 404 is used to determine whether and by how much the image data is scaled.
