Camber Measurement Systems

Slitting coils releases tension in semi-finished material which creates camber cut at the slitted strip. Camber which may be also called edge straightness may lead to tool damage and stopping the production, if it goes undetected. Despite several techniques to calculate the likeliness of camber cut, it cannot be prevented fully. Therefore, the camber needs…

Measurement of Tailored Blanks

imess offers various optical measurement tables with their product line SQ. These tables are suitable for various materials and do not only apply to the metal industry. Systems have been installed to measure either the width of paper strips or fabrics. The system SQ2D, for instance, measures the contour of tailored blanks. These pre-products are…

Measurement and Test of Valve Springs

imess F435 provides a complete measurement and test for valve springs. The functions comprise the three most important steps which are required to constantly produce high quality. The optical measurement and test system automatically controls the quality of the spring, supports the setup of the coiler and delivers 3D file feedback for improved spring construction.…

Optical Connector Inspection

The system imess C260 checks connectors contact free and capable of measuring system analysis processes inline. The exact geometry of pins is essential for the for the production of connectors since they have to fit into their respective counterpart. They have to be produced exactly according to drawings. The imess C260 operates with a capability…

strong strip width measurement

2019 is a strong year for imess strip width measurement. Since January, five systems have been ordered and some have already been installed. The measuring widths of the systems are 1500, 1600 and 2100 mm. Strip width and number are irrelevant for the high-precision measurement. The systems achieve an accuracy of ± 0.01 mm so…

Review: WAFIOS In-House Exhibition

Not only in the automotive industry high quality requirements come along with a rising number of measurement tools. Therefore the size of one system is getting more and more important while planning new factories and laboratories. imess presented the system F435 C as reaction to this development at the Wafios In-House Exhibition in Wuppertal, Germany.…

solid measurement tables guarantee reliable quality assurance

Optical measurement tables test single samples in only a few steps fast, reliable and operator independent. The imess developments are tailor made for each task and the respective material. They automatize the measurement of samples and make them economically efficient. The measurement results are objective, repeatable and accurate. The product portfolio allows the measurement of…

Inline Optical Inspection Systems

Inspection modules are integrated inline to observe the production 100%. The optical inspection systems can easily be integrated any time – even after line construction – due to their sparce space requirement. Depending on the production environment, camera laser and possibly a backlight are used. The evaluation of the collected data and their immediate transfer…

Check of markings on suspension springs

The latest topic in the industry are various motors for future vehicles. However, independent from electronic or motors already in use, the chassis rarely changes. Suspension springs used in all types of vehicles are marked during production with diverse signatures such as colour dots, text or barcodes. Subsequently, the allocation to loadgroups, a constant tracking…

Inline Concentricity and Runout Measurement

imess U100T checks the geometrical dimenstion and tolerance runout and concentricity inline. Moving the item may cause vibration which reduces the measurement accuracy or even prevents the measurement entirely. The construction of the U100T minimizes the risk by turning the camera around the fixed test item in only a few seconds. The system uses a…

Product Update: Camber …

The extension of the imess SMP inline provides compact and fast measurement of the three most important characteristics: width, thickness and camber of the sheet strip. The camber exclusive version is already installed and running smoothly. Thus, the system may be enhanced by two more functions. The width can be measured in line with an…

imess on the road – Wire 2018

We successfully started our exhibition year on the Wire&Tube in Düsseldorf last week. We thank everyone who came to visit our booth to see the latest developments in the field of measurement and test equipment. The geometry check of valve and suspension springs has been our focus this year. Our systems qualify by operator independent…

Optical Height Check of Wave Springs

Wave springs are used in the industry mostly in limited installation spaces. The height of the spring is up to 50% lower compared to valve springs with similar power. Characteristics The critical production settings of the components can be checked with the compact system solution of the imess F920 fast and uncomplicated. The system offers…

Successful industrial meeting in Stuttgart

We have been to the Blechexpo again this year like three times before to present our solutions for the metal-working industry. The numerous national and international guests saw our following systems themselves: During the four days of the trade fair, informative and exciting discussions took place regarding possible new developments of measurement solutions and their…

digital measurement of coil set

The latest development imess S30 detects the coil set of metal digitally and operator independent. The coil set phenomenon is typically occurring during decoiling processes due to the tension of the material itself. If the coil set is undetected, severe problems occur during the stamping. Regular inspection is thus required. The sheet sample is manually…
