Inline quality control with clear vision: ProfilControl 7 ICSM

Measures inside geometries such as inner diameter, clamping sections, layer and wall thicknesses, etc. of cut profiles

ProfilControl ICSM is the new system solution for continuous, automated quality control of the inside geometry of profiles during the production process. With this system, operators are for the first time able to measure the inside webs, clamping sections, coating layers and wall thicknesses etc. of plastic, rubber and metal profiles directly after the cutting unit. The system sorts the tested items automatically based on good/bad parameters. It can be easily integrated into the continuous extrusion process (inline measurement) or used as a stand-alone testing station for single-piece inspection.

instead of


Replaces the time-consuming manual inspection process using projectors! Sample preparation (cutting, polishing etc.) is no longer necessary.

instead of


Allows a continuous, automated 100% inspection in real time of all cut profiles - instead of the so far practice of random sample testing.

instead of


Measures hidden values such as rates of recycled material, wall & coating thicknesses, etc. Is also the perfect solution for cut co-extruded hoses/tubes!

Multi-Camera Sensor Technology

ProfilControl 7 ICSM is based on the high-performance ProfilControl 7 technology. The employed multi-camera sensors make it the system of choice for measuring also difficult-to-detect fields of vision in complex profiles in real time. The system features a modularly adjustable multi-area scanning function – a genuine innovation in image processing technology. The new MultiArea functionality complements the physical sensor equipment by virtual cameras. This makes it possible to define as many fields of vision as desired by different parameters (e.g. defect sizes) and perform various inspection tasks at the same time.

Networked systems & Big Data analysis

The fact that all control data use the same algorithm guarantees immediate correspondence between information about the inside and the outside dimensions. This opens up entirely new possibilities of data enhancement and fault analysis, adding transparency to the complete profile extrusion process and its most critical stages. Repetitive defects are securely ruled out – at line speeds of up to 10 m/min. The manufacturing process can be optimized in a pinpoint manner. All components of the system can be controlled within a decentralized structure right at the line or centrally via a server.

Compact. Robust. ’Made in Germany’.

The housing and wiring of the system have been designed specifically for service under most severe conditions. Thus they easily cope even with very high mechanical stress. Tried and tested materials, reliable technology, ergonomic design and precision engineering guarantee longevity and provide security of investment.
