Habile Tool for Quality Measurement

Fast and Precise Measurement of Tubular Samples

Tube and hose manufacturers are searching for fast, precise and cost-effective ways to measure and record tubular samples in the laboratory. Conventional contact measuring equipment such as calipers, micrometers or dial gauges offer no satisfactory solution. The small, sometimes soft products are deformed by the contact pressure, which has a negative effect on the acquisition of the measured value.

  • Two variants are available: GaugePro 8 covers a diameter range from 2.5 mm to 8 mm. GaugePro 22 can measure tube samples from 6.8 mm to 22 mm (© Zumbach)

  • The software also supports digital processing of the measured values (© Zumbach)

In addition, contact measurement methods and their associated results are heavily dependent on the persons making them. Different handling of the measuring tools as well as dexterity often result in significant variations in results.

Contactless Measuring

With GaugePro from Zumbach Electronic AG, Orpund, Switzerland, it is possible to perform the measurement of tubular samples completely contactless as stated in a press release. With state-of-the-art ultrasonic technology, the wall thickness, inside diameter and outside diameter are measured instantly. In addition, the ovality and eccentricity can be determined.

The inserted sample is measured immediately at four fixed measuring points. Due to the rotation function, the measurement can be extended to eight measuring points. This increases the coverage around the product and all variations in wall thickness become visible. An automatic self-calibration ensures that the measured values are accurately and reliably recorded even under changing environmental conditions.

Support During Digitization

The measured values are displayed clearly in the large user interface. Several measured tube samples can be summarized in a common statistic. The logging of the measurement results is thus fast, easy and reliable.

The measuring system can make the measurement results available in different ways. In addition to a conventional printout of the measurement results, they can also be stored in a CSV file, or written directly to a customer-side MySQL database via the ODBC interface.

Currently two variants are available. GaugePro 8 covers a diameter range from 2.5 mm to 8 mm. GaugePro 22 can measure tube samples from 6.8 mm to 22 mm.
