Recent Measurement Technologies in Japanese Steel Industry
This article reviews the developments of the measurement technologies in the Japanese steel industry based on the papers published in the biannual conferences of The Iron and Steel Institute of Japan. We classify the roles of measurement technology into the one for automatic control, the one for inspection and quality improvement, and the one for scientific and technological developments. The needs for the measurement technologies shows a clear shift from the first one to the second one in this decade. Towards the next decade, we describe the increasing demand for the quality assurance and specialization, the micro parameterization and the multifactorial characterization of the quality, and the cooperation of multiple sensors in the ubiquitous network environments.
