Investments volume: 11 000 000 rub.
WHAT WE OFFER:
Laser thickness tester. The device is aimed for automatic contactless measurement of tube-rolling products thickness in general.
WHO WILL PURCHASE:
Industrial enterprises manufacturing tube rolls and metal rolled metal products.
STAGE OF THE PROJECT:
At present the project is on the stage of an industrial sample finishing. The first successful trials of the laser thickness tester are performed at joint stock company «Severskiy Pipe Works».
X-ray and laser thickness testers used at the moment in many enterprises of Russia, Commonwealth of Independent States and developing countries are cost-intensive in service due to expensive and non-durable main parts. And manual means of geometrical parameters measurement (rulers, slide calipers etc.) do not provide necessary accuracy and promptness of measurements.
In pipe welding it is offered to use control-measurement system on basis of distance triangulation type indicators for measuring roll stock thickness. This system allows performing automatic contactless thickness measurement, indication of measurement result on liquid crystal display and result return via interface communication channel into automated system of accompaniment work piece or personal computer. Alongside with that total rejection of x-ray tubes usage is supposed.
LLC «Micron» designs all measurement systems for specific customer’s task. If necessary laser thickness tester after finishing can be used for geometry control, in particular for geometry dimension of heated metal. It is also possible to develop application for other production processes which require accurate distance to processed detail or its thickness identifying in complicated production conditions.
Comparable cold rolled metal products thickness measurement accuracy in comparison with x-ray thickness testers.
Laser thickness tester breadboard model is developed and made, patent RU № 2419068 «Method of thickness measurement and device for its performance» is received, and also the application for invention «Method of laser tester calibration», registration №2013141704 from 10.09.2013.
Laser thickness testers are planned to start selling in 2015. At present the project team offers the following preliminary business-model with participation of the partner (dealer):
potential final consumers (joint stock company «Severskiy Pipe Works», VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation, joint stock company «EVRAZ «Nizhnetagilskiy Metallurgical Combine», joint stock company «Kamensk-Uralskiy Metallurgy Factory» and others). Approximate cost of thickness tester 1,27 mln. rub.;
partners (dealers). Project team is searching for potential partners. Approximate cost of thickness tester is 0,95 mln. rubles (with discount up to 25%);
Preliminary marginal revenue is 0,63 mln. rubles (70%) from one thickness tester with the price 0,27 mln. rubles for components. Taking into account all other company expenditures, revenue rate before interests and taxes payment will comprise about 46% with prime cost of one thickness tester around 0,51 mln. rubles.
According to data of Ekaterinburg entrepreneurship development center, the market of quality control in Russia makes up about 20 mln dollars according to different assessments. World market of similar systems is about 2,5 billion dollars (according to data of «Markets and Research»).
