IVM s.r.l. (Italy)
IVM is an innovative Start Up that embraces the skills and experiences of its members and over twenty years working experiences of the entire team. Such experiences are mostly gained while conducting numerous research projects (regional, national and European), performed in close collaboration with Universities, Research organizations and large companies.

The common denominator to all these activities, and which constitutes the most significant part of the experiences of IVM, can be synthesized in the ability to realize monitoring and diagnostic systems based on the innovative use of integrated sets of sensors. These experiences have enabled us to acquire significant expertise in: accelerometer sensors WITH MEMS technology; HW and SW design and implementation of low-power wireless networks for acquisition systems of accelerometric signals; extraction of information-diagnostic content from the data acquired by the monitoring systems through the use of specific processing algorithms.

The approach that the IVM team has always had is to take in consideration an integrated system of sensors, so we can get information based on possible correlations of the data measured in the same instant of time in different parts of the area monitored. This approach and expertise in measuring accelerometer enabled the development of several innovative applications and products In the past 10 years, the sensor technology has taken advantage of a particularly high technological development. This has determinated an improvement of its characteristics, a significant reduction of costs and, consequently, a very considerable increase of its use. Consider that, today, a middleweight car has on board about 80-100 sensors while few years ago they were less than 10. A significant aspect of this process is that on one hand the applications of the sensor technology have been increasing more and more and on the other hand it is making it increasingly necessary to develop advanced technologies to process increasing amounts of data. These technologies are proving to be particularly useful because they allow the extraction of informative contents not readily obtainable from the simple comparison with threshold values.

Greenbank GWF Weigh Feeder
The Greenbank Group (UK) - Greenbank GWF feeders are designed to feed material at a pre-determined feeding rate and are proving their worth across a wide range of sectors, including cement production and other heavy industries.

The weigh feeders are used for conveying a variety of products including sand, gravel, coal and biomass, recycled media and also food products, and cement.

One of the latest companies to benefit from the GWF range is Hanson Cement, which last year installed a weigh feeder at its Padeswood facility in Flintshire.

The site, which has undergone a significant expansion programme, is now benefiting from the system, which is designed to feed raw materials into the processing plant at a predetermined rate.

This is achieved by having a shear gate to set a constant material bed depth for the given particle size and an inverter drive to control the feeder belt speed. This feed rate is maintained automatically by the GBFC-446 controller.

Alternatively, the feeder can be operated at a fixed feeder belt speed, and then the controller will make adjustments to a pre-feeder device to maintain the given set point. Added to this, the GBFC-446 controller uses the weight and speed signals in pulses per metre travelled to calculate the flow rate and make adjustments to maintain the given set point.

The Greenbank Weigh Feeder utilises a unique parallelogram weigh mechanism. The virtue of this design is that there are no moving parts, pivots, bearings, etc. The parallelogram concept ensures that the exact load that is imposed on the weigh (suspended) idler is transferred to the load cell without alteration by lever ratios or other mechanical contrivances.

Nominated for the Best Train Scales/Weighbridges 2017

POWERVE - POrtable WEigher for Railway VEhicles
IVM s.r.l. (Italy) - POWERVE is a totally new technological system, it is useful to take high quality measurements of the actual weight force of each wheel of a train on the rail. It is positioned directly between the rail and each wheel tyre (on the rolling circle surface), and not between the wheel flanges. In this way it weights the real load of each wheel on the rail. In order to better explain how our system works, we have recorded a full uncut video, where we show how to weigh a B-B rolling stock in less than 25 minutes (installation included).

Given its precision and accuracy (certified overall system uncertainty in field of <1%), one can easily perform a train weighing without the need of a complex and time consuming installation. Moreover, it can also be used to balance and check the train weight distribution, improving the rolling stock safety.
