Aicon TubeInspect P8, an automated 3D tube measurement system:

  • Consists of  eight GigE cameras that provide fast, automated 3D measurement of tubing, brake lines, hydraulic lines, exhaust pipes and molded tubes.
  • Includes Aicon Bending Studio software  providing a COMPLETE analysis of tube shape and tube profile, not just at the bend points.
  • Integrates direct feedback to CNC tube bending machines, allowing for quick corrections for out of spec tubes and faster set-up of new tube designs.
  • Requires no special fixtures or holding devices. Tube measurements and analysis are completed within seconds after placing part into TubeInspect P8 cell.
  • Suspend tubes along their entire length, reducing the problem created by systems that only support tubes in a few locations.
  • Compares tubes directly to CAD models or to a master tube. A go/no-go output indicator shows all areas in or out of tolerance.

TubeInspect P8 measures:

  • Tubes ranging from highly flexible thin brake lines to large exhaust pipes for heavy trucks. Regardless of texture or color TubeInspect easily measures tubes designed to carry hydraulic and cooling liquids or fuel.
  • Tubes with varying bend radii.
  • The location of fixtures, supports and attachments by using the aid of tube adapters.
  • Anything with a cylindrical profile such as bent wires, molded tubes or sub assemblies of tubes and flexible parts.
  • The optional Tube Server software module allows the creation, editing and maintenance of the tube bending programs of many tube bending machine manufacturers.

TubeInspect applications include:

  • High volume production.
  • Online corrections to bending machines.
  • The requirement to eliminate test equipment and reduces changeover time.
  • Prototype production.
  • Quality assurance for tube manufacturing.
  • Reverse engineering of sample tubes.

TubeInspect P8 can:

  • Measure tubes from 1mm to 125mm diameter.
  • Measure tubes over n 2 meters in one pass.
  • Measure tubes of any length by sliding the tube through the measurement chamber.
  • Measure bends from 1º to 340 º .
  • Automatically convert bending point from x,y,z coordinates to push, rotate, and bend.
  • Control up to 10 CNC bending machines automatically.
