Process Control Applications
Optical Fiber Inspection System
Identifies defects in fiber optic material during manufacturing on a draw tower. This high resolution system uses two line-scan cameras mounted at 90 degrees to each other, each equipped with a microscope objective. High powered LED’s are used to illuminate …
Hot Dip Simulator
Controls motion, heating, cooling and logs data from a 1/10th scale simulator of steel manufacturing facility. Uses PID control to optimize heating and cooling of steel panels.
HFC Refrigerants Reactor
CTI has developed multiple custom software applications to control and monitor HFC refrigerant reactor pilot plants. These high channel count systems employ NI cFP Real-Time hardware for the highest level of reliability.
Photocell Production System
Controls the manufacture of photocells in a vacuum chamber. User can create, edit, and load recipes which control temperatures, times, and gas pressures of various process phases.
Semiconductor Deposition System
Controls a vacuum deposition system used in producing optoelectronics. The control software controls the deposition parameters via recipes, the vacuum system, and residual gas analyzer.
Electroplating Control System
Controls the electroplating process for semiconductor materials in a system that is easily expandable to include multiple electroplating tanks using just one computer to control the various electroplating stations.
