GMS-E Pipe End Measurement

The GMS-E, specifically developed for industrial inline applications, permits conclusions about the production quality of pipe cross-sections. The geometry is measured far inside, viewed from the pipe end.

Product areas & Areas of application

Product areas:

  • Pipe (round, profiled)
  • Rod (round, profiled)

Areas of application:

  • Geometry measurement
  • Groove detection after drawing
  • Volume calculation and saw-cut optimisation downstream of the welding line


  • Steel, brass, aluminium, plastics, etc.


Burrs or deformed ends will not influence the result. Since the cross-section geometry is recorded contact-free far inside the pipe, in contrast to conventional, elaborate proce­dures, the GMS-E can be used very early in the production process. The sooner the quality is known, the fewer rejects will be produced.
