New solutions for in-line measurement and control of tubes and profiles at Tube 2018

New solutions for in-line measurement and control of tubes and profiles at Tube 2018

ZUMBACH – Swiss Prime Measuring since 1957 - will join the international trade fair for tube products TUBE 2018 in Düsseldorf (April 16-20). Novel and intelligent solutions as well as cost efficient solutions for in-line measurement and control of tubes, pipes and profiles are going to be the focus of Zumbach's exhibition booth.

Makers of seamless pipe, tube, profiles and bars now have access to ZUMBACH gauges, which have just been enhanced, now offering even more significant advantages:


> New PROFILEMASTER® models SPS 80, 200, 400, 550 and 800
complete the line of hot and cold in-process gauges for rounds up to diameter 600 mm (23.62 in.) or profiles of up to 550 mm (21.65 in.) edge lengths. PROFILEMASTER® gauges are based on the principle of light-section technology and machine vision, and can handle any shape or profile.
Relevant dimensions can be entered into the program and are then monitored during the production run at all times. Typical applications are hot seamless pipe and profiles of any kind, cold rolled/welded tubes and pipes (ERW) and inspection stations for tube, pipe, profiles and bar.

PROFILEMASTER® systems are available in multiple designs, depending on the requirements of the customer and product. The systems are best suited for the continuous measurement and monitoring of dimensions and the complete cross-section of profiles made of steel, metal, plastics or rubber.

> The new series of STEELMASTER hot and cold gauges, based on high-speed laser scanning, now offers up to 12’000 measurements per second, with new Calibrated Single Scan (CSS) technology. This results in a highly accurate and fast non-contact measurement of diameter, ovality and width/height at production speeds of 100 m/s (19,685 ft/min) and beyond.
STEELMASTER Gauges are available in static (SMS models), oscillating (SMO models) or rotating (SMR models) configurations and for diameters of up to 500 mm (20 in.) or beyond upon request.
