Fluid level measurement of aluminium pig irons

In aluminium casting plants or foundries, the cast is poured into shape to form small bars, known as pig irons. The charging level in the forming process is critical in ensuring consistent weight of the pigs. Using a special non-contact measuring device, the depth of fill is recorded. For these applications, an Austrian system builder uses laser scanners.
