The gauge heads of the LASER Series 2000 enable non-contact and non-destructive measurement of the diameter and the ovality of wire rods, bars and tubes during production. The measuring method is based on the use of laser light sources and CCD sensors in combination with powerful signal processors. The outer diameter of the metal tube is calculated by means of an intelligent diffraction analysis. Extremely short exposure times guarantee a high accuracy of the single value at all line speeds.
The LASER Series 2000 includes gauge heads for different product diameters from 0.05 to 500 mm. They are free of wearing parts, keep their precision during the entire operating time and no calibration or maintenance work is necessary. The measuring values are clearly displayed on the monitor of a processor system of the ECOCONTROL series.
Ultimately, it is high-quality laser technology with a unique non-contact and non-destructive measuring principle that inspires. For the measurement of the diameter the optimal system for quality assurance, process optimization and stability.
PLANOWAVE 6000 M is a non-contact measuring system that is used for non-destructive thickness measurement of strips and plates. The system is based on millimeter wave and radar technology. It offers a precise thickness measurement independent of material, temperature and surface of the product. A calibration on the material is not needed.
The PLANOWAVE 6000 M is either integrated directly into the production line or used for final inspection. The measurement of the product is accomplished by using millimeter waves, according to the FMCW runtime method. An optionally traversing set of transceivers above and below the strip or plate continuously sends and receives frequency modulated millimeter waves. From the runtime difference, the thickness of the product is precisely determined.
SIKORAs RADAR SCAN 6000 is based on progressive, high resolution radar technology and represents an innovative alternative to the optical triangulation technology. The RADAR SCAN 6000 measures online and contactless, simultaneously from several directions, the diameter and ovality of metal pipes. It completely records to micron accuracy measuring values over 360° of the circumference of the pipe. In addition, fast rotating metal pipes can be precisely measured. The radar measuring system requires no time-consuming calibration, is insensitive to dust, heat and steam and continuously delivers precise measuring values. Due to the narrow design, the RADAR SCAN 6000 can easily be integrated into the production process. The technology is suitable for blank, rough as well as cold or hot surfaces.
For quality control at the production of light alloy tubes, the X-RAY 6000 PRO continuously provides data for inner and outer diameter, wall thickness, ovality and eccentricity to ensure that the required product specifications are met. Therefore, the system provides the basis for optimization and repeatability of processes.
The X-RAY 6000 PRO measures wall thickness, eccentricity, inner and outer diameter and ovality of up to three different material layers. As standard, the system includes the processor-based display and control device ECOCONTROL 6000 with a vertically arranged 22“ TFT monitor. The ECOCONTROL 6000 is conveniently and intuitively operated via touch screen. All relevant measuring values are numerically as well as graphically and as trend and statistical data shown at a glance. A line presentation with pictograms of the connected devices provides a clear overview.
