Automated surface quality control in round product extrusion.
ProfilControl 7 Tube detects the tiniest surface defects inline, during the extrusion process, in real time and 100%. The system scans the entire product surface for holes, blisters, lump defects, necking, flaws in the sheathing, etc.
As soon as the system detects a defect, it indicates this on a graphic display and triggers a signal for the marking system, the sawing equipment and/or the grading system – guaranteeing that only products fully compliant with the specifications are shipped to the customers.
The technology? Genuine image processing technology – continuously further developed and proved successful for 25 years. Up to 8 high-performance PIXARGUS multi-camera sensors scan every single area, however small, of your extruded product with utmost precision. They detect flaws down to 0.1 mm in size on the surfaces of rubber hoses, plastic tubes, cables, etc.
