Aicon Optical TubeInspect

Stam offers high speed, state-of-the-art, Photogrametric digital inspection with the Aicon Optical TubeInspect System. Stam' was the 5th machine purchased in the USA, as Mercedes and BMW have the first (4).

Typical tube applications include profiles with (3) or more bends. Additionally, the system offers:

1.Reverse engineering of production or prototype samples to develop an accurate print

2.Capability studies

3.Accuracy

4.High volume production flexibility

5.The ability to make and send online corrections to production floor bending machines

6.Eliminates the need for bending gauges

7.Reduces change over time

8.Supports prototype development as an optical gauge for bending machine set-up and quality assurance

9.All types of tube manufacturing from highly flexible thin brake lines to large exhaust pipes for heavy trucks

Regarding accuracy, the systems acquires information about the tube while using (16) permanently mounted high resolution digital camera. Without the use of special fixtures or clamping devices, "sheath" tolerance can be determined to an accuracy of +/- 0.1 mm.

The Aicon TubeInspect System is truly state-of-the-art and is able to support your programs from prototype development, into the production launch and through the life of the program.
