laser measuring technology

While talking to several customers that produce longitudinally welded pipes, we realised that measurement of the inner contour continues to involve great effort.

This is now history: in cooperation with a partner specialising in laser measuring technology, we have developed the perfect solution, on the basis of „circular laser triangulation“.

The new system achieves non-contact high-precision measurement of the internal contour of our customers‘ pipes. It scans the internal contour of the pipe across the entire pipe length, generating a complete 3D image of the pipe’s inner wall.

It thus permits, on the one hand, measurement of geometry across the entire circumference, detecting ovality, for example, and, on the other hand, it images the individual surface elements, such as the shape of the gap before welding and the contour of the finished weld.

In line with the traditions of our company, the system is designed for the tough conditions of industrial pipe production. With its measuring range of up to 500 mm pipe radius and its high measuring accuracy, our new system ideally meets the pipe industry’s needs.
