The GobRadar is a camera-based observation system (sensor) providing a number of measurements for each and every single gob. Two separate high-speed matrix cameras in cooled housings are installed on the feeder platform to monitor the gobs just after the cut. The images from two angles are used to create a 3D-model of each gob. The real time data acquired includes Gob Weight, Length, Diameter, Angle, Position, Trajectory, Shape, Freak Detection and Temperature. This information is then fed back to the Gob Control Closed Loop to ensure the desired gob parameters are being met.
