PROFILEMASTER® SPS by ZUMBACH, in-line profile measurement and monitoring systems
Published: - 14/09/2022 Author: Claudia, Ed. Staff
Thanks to its commitment to extensive research and development activities, ZUMBACH Electronics is an established leader worldwide in the field of in-line measuring and control systems. The company’s top priority is to strengthen customer relationships, both through a local presence and through proven high-quality products, services, personal consulting, and support.
Following these principles, the company has designed the PROFILEMASTER SPS system, a device for in-line measuring contours and dimensions on any kind of profiles. Indeed, PROFILEMASTER is specifically designed to serve measurement, monitoring, and surface flaw detection under harsh environments of rolling mills for cold and hot steel rods (up to 1200 °C) and bars.
PROFILEMASTER systems are equipped with 4 to 8 laser/camera modules and can adapt to different measuring field sizes to cover products ranging from 5 mm (.2 in.) to 720 mm (28.3 in.). By combining the images of the individual cameras, it is possible to continuously measure the cross-section of a moving profile. An ergonomic graphical interface displays all the relevant information, such as width, height, angle, and radius, or other geometric quantities. Moreover, it is possible to directly import the nominal profile shape from CAD design files (DXF), for a simple device configuration. Last but not least, changes in speed and twist – within normal limits – doesn’t affect the measurement precision.
• provides 100% inspection in real time;
• reduces start-up time and improves process control;
• saves raw material and post-processing costs by making post-production checks irrelevant;
• early detection of process problems;
• easy integration to your network or higher-level systems;
• simple cleaning thanks to reduced maintenance requirements;
• logging of all production data for QC department.
