Measuring and testing systems for your products

Optical inspection systems for quality that shows!

PIXARGUS offers an unparalleled range of turnkey inline systems for surface inspection and dimension measurement. This has made the company a world leader in automated inline quality control.

Our measuring and testing systems detect smallest defects and material deviations of extruded profiles, tubing, tubes, hoses, pipes or cables, as well as webs, film, foils, textiles, paper or fiber composites. We also check your raw materials in an automated inspection process – to ensure that your production runs smoothly from the very beginning.

Optimize your quality management with our optical defect detection systems, measure your products inline during running production or use our systems to inspect single parts.

What we measure


Our optical inspection systems provide non-contact inline quality control. Up to eight high-capacity camera sensors are arranged around the circumference of the profile and capture any – however small – surface defect at 100% in real time – even for highly complex extruded products.


PIXARGUS‘ image processing technology uses high-precision optics and sophisticated algorithms to handle profile geometries of any kind and complexity. A specially developed calibration of the laser-camera system forms the basis for maximum precision and excellent measuring results.


Inner Geometry

A benchmark in automated quality inspection: The new ICSM technology inspects the complete inner cross section of cut profiles automatically and continuously during running production. A high performing sensor unit with 4, 6 or 8 cameras replaces the time-consuming manual quality inspection process.
