Surface Inspection of Tubes
In tube production, surface defects are often perpetuated through the complete process chain. Non-stop surface inspection from bloom to finished tube is therefore critical for the quality of the final product. The 3D surface inspection system gives tube manufacturers a further tool with which to detect surface defects at a much earlier stage in the rolling process than before, and to quickly take measures to counteract them. The three-dimensional information on the spatial extent of the defect, in particular, enables much safer decision- making on to what extent a surface defect is still tolerable or whether immediate intervention in the process is necessary.
