TubeInspect P16 – A large measurement area for all tube leng

Show in EnglishShow in German

TubeInspect P16, a non-contact measuring system, merely requires that the tube to be measured is placed in an optical measuring cell. Sixteen high-resolution digital cameras with latest GigE technology accurately measure the tube’s geometry in a few seconds.
The tube does not need to be moved. The geometry is reported in an easily understandable way that is as sheath tolerance. The measuring range of TubeInspect P16 is 2,600 mm x 1,250 mm x 700 mm and this can be extended by repositioning the tube. TubeInspect P16 measures tubes with diameters ranging from 3 mm to 200 mm. Bends between 1° and 340° can also be measured easily. TubeInspect P16 has a newly added capability of measuring tubes with connected bends or with flexible parts.
TubeInspect P16 is also able to measure tubes with hose sections, shaped hoses, and hoses with fixtures or mounting attachments. Thus AICON extends the spectrum of optical measurement applications significantly. Tube measurements can be compared with a previously recorded sample part or with an imported CAD model.

TubeInspect P16 may be directly linked to Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) bending machines. If tube measurements indicate that adjustments need to be made to the tube manufacturing process, corrections are directly transmitted to the bending machine via the CNC program. If no automatic transfer of correctional data is possible, the determined parameters (e.g. push, rotate and bend) are entered manually into the bending program. In either case the bending machine corrections will be made more quickly so that dimensionally correct tubes are produced with minimal waste. Machine set-up becomes predictable, and down time is drastically reduced.

TubeInspect P8 – highly precise and versatile

Show in EnglishShow in German

Most of all bent tubes and wires are less than 1,000 mm long from end to end and have a maximum diameter of 100 mm. The first model of the new TubeInspect generation, the TubeInspect P8, was especially developed for the efficient quality control of this kind of component.
Equipped with 8 high-resolution cameras, TubeInspect P8 is suitable for tubes and wires with diameters from 1 mm to 125 mm and allows for optimum 3D inspection of objects of up to 1 m length. However, even longer objects can be measured with TubeInspect P8. The lateral doors allow for an overlapping
repositioni ng section by section.
Sheath tolerance can be determined to an accuracy of up to 0.035 mm. Measuring results are provided within 2 to 5 seconds. Considerably optimized production processes, e.g. the setup of bending machines, save time and costs. Combined with the software platform BendingStudio, the system offers various application-oriented functionalities.
Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, TubeInspect P8 fulfills highest requirements regarding accuracy and speed. The long-life and low-maintenance LED illumination technology guarantees a particularly smooth illumination of the measuring field.
High-resolution cameras with latest GigE technology ensure an almost synchronic capture of the measuring object within milliseconds. The innovative three-dimensional glass reference is highly precise and long-term stable.
TubeInspect P8 fits onto a euro-pallet. The result: reduced transport costs and floor space in operation. TubeInspect P8 is applicable for mobile use in production environment. The system is insensitive to vibrations; after change of location, TubeInspect P8 is immediately usable, without new calibration.

The smartSCAN systems capture the minutest detail at the highest level of accuracy to detail for all your
scanning projects, and even under temperature fluctuations operate with consistently stable and reliable
performance. Thanks to the miniaturized projection technique (MPT), the breuckmann scanners are characterized by very fast data acquisition; even the most complex surface geometries of fragile or deformable parts are captured within seconds at a high level of precision. The system configuration is easily customized to suit your individual project requirements and the spectrum of the 3D data acquisition ranges from the smallest injection nozzles up to full-size vehicles.
Thanks to the swiftly accomplished change of fields of view, objects are digitized within seconds irrespective of their size and complexity, and are directly available as high-precision 3D data in numerous standard formats for further processing. The measurement volume of the smartSCAN systems ranges from a few millimeters to meters. Additionally, by using a combination of the scanner with photogrammetry, even very large size freeform objects are captured down to the minutest detail.
