Straightness and twist measurement
The patented GMS-S enables the inline measurement of the straightness and twist of profiled rod products.
It doesn’t get more objective than that!
The patented GMS-S allows for a 100% inline measurement of the unambiguous and effective straightness and twist of rod products. The known measurement deviation of conventional test methods, caused by existing constraining and static friction forces in workpiece fixtures, centrifugal forces in rotating test systems or the scatter of the subjective operator assessment, are completely eliminated by the GMS-S. The measuring result is comparable to a survey with zero gravity!
Digital benefits of measured data
DBy digitising the unambiguous product straightness, upstream or downstream manufacturing processes can be evaluated immediately or optimised in the aftermath by machine learning algorithms. The superordinate added value is the reduction of production costs.
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 production of the GMS-S. For example, foundation vibrations introduced into the system are absorbed by an intelligent damping system. Be it cross transport or axial feed – the GMS-S can be easily integrated at various points in your production line thanks to its intelligent design.
Whether support arm guiding or floor guiding – depending on the application, we adapt the mechanical design to the present marginal conditions of your production. The standardised measurement function is maintained as a matter of fact.
The GMS-S was used to control the production quality of brass profiles in a continuous target line by ASMAG GmbH. The result: Objective measurement results in a cycle time of less than 2 seconds!
