TubeInspect is an all-in-one turnkey measurement cell specially developed for the efficient quality control of bent tubes and wires.
Powered by an array of high-quality cameras that deliver unmatched optical scanning functionality, TubeInspect is all about making tube measurement as fast as possible without compromising on data quality and accuracy. Powered by the leading BendingStudio software platform, a TubeInspect system can become the central hub for controlling and analysing the entire tube production process.
The TubeInspect P8.2 models are suited for tubes less than 1000 millimetres long from end-to-end and with a maximum diameter of 125 millimetres.
TubeInspect P16.2 models can measure tubes less than up to 2.6 meters long and with a maximum diameter of 200 millimetres.
All models can however deal with much longer tubes through simple repositioning.
The TubeInspect platform also delivers full automation capability, with high-resolution models ready for complete integration as the quality assurance step within a larger robotic tube production cell. Also delivered with high-resolution models is the possibility to measure end holders and fittings with CAD-Adaptors through image analysis rather than with mechanical adaptors.
Integrated long-life, low-maintenance LED illumination technology smoothly illuminates of TubeInspect measurement field, with the interior sidelight control made automatically through BendingStudio. Imaging is fast and detailed with GigE camera technology that ensures synchronic capture of the measuring object within milliseconds. And all this is built on an innovative 3 dimensional glass reference surface that is highly precise and offers the reliable stability demanded for shop floor use.
