The perfect result in one turn
In the early manufacturing process, drawn or sawn pipes in particular have deformations and burrs at their ends. Since the GMS-E measures the cross-section geometry far inside the pipe without ever establishing contact, unlike with conventional methods, such imperfections do not influence the measurement result. This way, the GMS-E can be used very early in the production process. The earlier the product quality is known, the less waste is produced!
Digital benefits of measured data
In addition to the digitisation of your product geometry, specific inspection characteristics can be extracted with the GMS-E software and passed on for further processing via various interfaces to both the process control and operations control levels.
Implementation for industrial applications
Thanks to our many years of know-how in mechanical engineering, especially for the semi-finished product industry, adverse environmental conditions are not an obstacle for us, but rather lessons learned that are taken into account in the GMS-E. Be it cross transport or axial feed – the GMS-E can be easily integrated at various points in your production line thanks to its intelligent design.
Our measuring systems are functionally standardised. This means that the measurement function is recurrently the same. The mechanical design, on the other hand, we adapt from project to project according to your circumstances. E.g. the rotation measuring head may be equipped with a second triangulation laser from a diameter larger than 200 mm.
For final quality assurance, a fully automatic test line was delivered to Germany’s largest manufacturer of brass profiles. Here, both round and profiled products are inspected on a single system and sorted according to their quality.
