    "description": "<p><strong>Sensor data set, radial forging at AFRC testbed</strong></p>\n\n<p><strong>General information on the data set</strong></p>\n\n<p>Radial forging is widely used in industry to manufacture components for a broad range of sectors including automotive, medical, aerospace, rail and industrial. The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, houses a GFM SKK10/R radial forge that has been used as a testbed for this project. Using two pairs of hammers operating at 1200 strokes/min, and providing a maximum forging force per hammer of 150 tons, the radial forge is capable of processing a range of metals, including steel, titanium and inconel. Both hollow and solid material can be formed with the added benefit of creating internal features on hollow parts using a mandrel. Parts can be formed at a range of temperatures from ambient temperature to 1200 &deg;C.</p>\n\n<p>For the provided data set, a total of 80 parts were forged over one day of operation. A machine failure occurred during the forging of part number 70, and this part was re-run once the malfunction had been fixed. Each forged part was then measured using a CMM to provide dimensional output relative to a target specification and tolerances. The CMM records 16 dimensional measurements.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Structure of the data</strong></p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>The sensor readings for the forging of the parts are provided in 80 csv files, named &ldquo;Scope0001.csv&rdquo; to &ldquo;Scope0080.csv&rdquo;. Each file contains the readings (columns) against time (rows). The first column displays the clock times (in milliseconds).</li>\n\t<li>A commentary on the sensors is provided in the file &ldquo;ScopeDataWithHeadings_v1.xlsx&rdquo; <strong>(NOTE: Some columns do not have sensor descriptions as this information is not available).</strong></li>\n\t<li>The CMM data is provided in the file &ldquo;CMMData.xlsx&rdquo;.</li>\n</ul>",
