A new TubeInspect is ready for start: TubeInspect P16

P8 was just the beginning! One year ago, the new generation tube and wire measurement was launched, the TubeInspect P-series. A milestone in 20-year-old system history. Now, AICON 3D Systems from Braunschweig introduces the second model of the series: the TubeInspect P16. The follow-up of the successful TubeInspect basic model sets new standards in the measurement of midsize and long tubes and wires.

Equipped with 16 high-resolution cameras with GigE technology and a large measurement area (2,600 mm x 1,250 mm x 700 mm), TubeInspect P16 is suitable for tubes and wires up to 2,500 mm length. Measuring results are provided in less than 10 seconds. Tubes of up to 7 m length can be measured by repositioning in several steps. The measurement sections are linked automatically. In open position, the lateral doors serve as support desk.

TubeInspect P16 considerably optimizes manufacturing processes, e.g. the setup of bending machines, and significantly reduces costs through shortened setup times. When measuring large objects, e.g. long thin metal or plastic pipes, BendingStudio compensates deflections occurring due to the own weight of the pipe. Combined with the software platform BendingStudio, the system offers various new application-oriented functionalities.

TubeInspect P16 fulfills highest requirements regarding accuracy and speed. The long-life and low-maintenance LED technology guarantees a particularly smooth illumination of the measuring field, and enables an even more reliable measurement of tubes and wires of all materials. Complex bends are captured even more detailed which improves the repeat accuracy. The measuring field was further optimized: the panel of the reference field is now supplemented with additional glass elements as beams for the low-maintenance reference points, which do not have their own power supply and are more precisely measurable. The measurement accuracy for the determination of the sheath tolerance could now be increased up to 0.085 mm.

TubeInspect P16 replaces expensive mechanical gauges. It is applicable in production environment and insensitive to vibrations. The new narrow front edge allows for an ergonomically optimized insertion of measuring objects into the measuring cell.
