ASCONA measuring systems

ASCONA measuring systems guarantee maximum process reliability for your production. This does not only require sophisticated measuring systems, but also an extensive service range guaranteeing high availability and reliability of the measuring machines.  Whether you need revisions and maintenance in intervals, repairs, spare parts service, or professional consulting and support – we are available around the clock and around the world.

Also for companies to remain competitive development cycles must be shortened and production costs must be reduced but raw material, energy and labor costs increase constantly. Consequently the production processes have to become more efficient while with retaining constant quality of the products and automation technology solves the challenges faced in profile extrusion. Optical measurement technology of ASCONA is targeted to the future requirements of automation technology – from the sensor to the software.

Also PROMEX CONTROL is no general measurement software but was developed in cooperation with our customers. Thus the software is specially tailored to the requirements of the profile industry.

On account of steadily increasing quality demands, investments must nowadays also be in new measuring technology.

However, investment costs cannot just be added to product prices but must be compensated through an increase in productive capacity.

This increase in productive capacity must be large enough to achieve a return of investment of less than 2 years.

Rubber profiles cannot be measured by conventional measuring devices. Calliper gauges or tactile measuring systems such as they are used for measurement of plastic and aluminium profiles, are rendered useless due to the specific material features of rubber.

Increasing demands by profile extrusion markets and particularly the plastics sector force profile manufacturers to install an optimum quality assurance system, i.e. quality flaws in profiles must be rapidly recognised in order to avoid a waste of expensive raw material.
