CENTERWAVE 6000 NEXT “to the pipe head”

SIKORA launches the new CENTERWAVE 6000 NEXT “to the pipe head”
At K 2019 SIKORA, manufacturer and worldwide supplier of innovative measuring and testing technology, presents for the first time the CENTERWAVE 6000 NEXT “to the pipe head”. Already prior to the first vacuum tank and thus, immediately after the pipe head, the system measures the decisive dimensions of the pipe from the inside at the start of the production line. For the first time, measuring values for wall thickness, concentricity, inner and outer diameter as well as information on weight per meter are available at such an early stage of the process. Thus, plastic pipe manufacturers receive the basis for a control and centering without delay, at the beginning of the extrusion process.

The CENTERWAVE 6000 NEXT “to the pipe head” is based on millimeter wave technology and measures the wall thickness distribution directly after the pipe head gapless over 360 degrees of the circumference already at the starting of the production line. A rotating radar sensor is connected with the pipe head and is positioned directly in the center of the pipe. By means of millimeter wave technology, wall thickness, diameter and concentricity are measured over the circumference from the inner side of the pipe. The measuring values are graphically visualized.

LASER Series 2000

The gauge heads of the LASER Series 2000 enable non-contact and non-destructive measurement of the diameter and the ovality of hoses and tubes during production. The measuring method is based on the use of laser light sources and CCD sensors in combination with powerful signal processors. The outer diameter of the metal tube is calculated by means of an intelligent diffraction analysis. Extremely short exposure times guarantee a high accuracy of the single value at all line speeds.

The LASER Series 2000 includes gauge heads for different product diameters from 0.05 to
500 mm. They are free of wearing parts, keep their precision during the entire operating time and no calibration or maintenance work is necessary. The measuring values are clearly displayed on the monitor of a processor system of the ECOCONTROL series.

Ultimately, it is high-quality laser technology with a unique non-contact and non-destructive measuring principle that inspires. For the measurement of the diameter the optimal system for quality assurance, process optimization and stability.

LUMP 2000

With the LUMP 2000, SIKORA offers a spectacular measuring technology for the detection of lumps and neckdowns in two or three measuring planes at any line speed.

Impressive is the intelligent double sensor technology, which distinguishes the LUMP 2000 devices in their performance. By using two sensors, so-called “ghost faults” are avoided. These faults are caused by light fluctuations from the outside, and therefore, are no real faults. The double sensor technology, where the difference between both sensors is evaluated, thus allows the reliable detection of “real” faults. A powerful signal processor evaluates the number, height, depth and length of the fault location. The combination of the double sensor technology (differential measuring principle) with infrared light sources assures a fault detection with highest reliability, even under difficult conditions such as dirt, dust or extreme vibration.

The lump detector is robust and can easily be installed in every extrusion line or rewinding machine lines due to its small dimensions. The setting of tolerances and the numeric display of lumps and neckdowns is realized with the REMOTE 2000 or a processor system of the ECOCONTROL series. Alternatively, the LUMP 2000 devices can be directly integrated into the line control via a universal interface module.

X-RAY 6000 PRO

For the continuous quality control in hose and tube extrusion lines or directly during the insulation respectively jacketing process of wires and cables, the X-ray measuring device X-RAY 6000 PRO is recommended. The system provides precise and reliable measuring values regarding diameter, wall thickness, concentricity as well as ovality and allow to keep the required product specifications.

The X-RAY 6000 PRO measures the wall thickness, the concentricity, the diameter and ovality of up to 3 different material layers. The system includes as a standard the display and control device ECOCONTROL 6000 with a vertical arranged 22“ TFT monitor. Directly during the online measurement the measuring values of both measuring axes and the regarding, calculated wall thickness values, which are offset by 45 °, are visualized. For the operator, the graphical display of the 8 values on the circumference is perfect. He sees how an adjustment of the injection tools affects the centricity.

The ECOCONTROL 6000 is operated comfortably via a touch screen and shows all measuring values numerically and graphically as well as trend and statistic data. A line representation with pictograms of the connected devices provides a clear overview.

CENTERWAVE 6000

The CENTERWAVE 6000 is a groundbreaking innovative key technology during the extrusion of big tubes. Several transceivers, arranged around the circumference of a tube, for continuously sending and receiving frequency modulated millimeter waves measure online contactless and µm-precisely the diameter, ovality and wall thickness of big plastic tubes during the extrusion process – without knowledge of material properties and without coupling mediums.

Even without any knowledge of the properties of the extruded materials and its temperatures, the CENTERWAVE 6000 measures the outer dimensions as well as the wall thicknesses simultaneously at several places of the circumference, providing a precision to a previously unknown degree. Layer thicknesses of multi-layer pipes can also be measured precisely.

Several sensors, so-called transceivers, arranged around the circumference of a pipe, continuously send and receive frequency modulated millimeter waves. Boundary layers reflect these waves, which are detected and demodulated by the receiving unit of the regarding transceiver. These receive signals contain information regarding the distance between boundary layers of different materials. After an algorithmic processing of the receive signals of each sensor, the requested measuring values regarding diameter, ovality and wall thickness are ready for visualization and control within only a few milliseconds.
