Tube Inspect - Automated, Simple & Effective way to measure free-form, bent tubes
What kinds of tubes can be measured optically?
TubeInspect measures automotive parts at DaimlerChrysler
Brake and fuel lines for the E and S Class from DaimlerChrysler are manufactured in the tube production plant in Sindelfingen, Germany. The lines, made from aluminum or steel, have diameters ranging from roughly 4 mm to 15 mm. Supplied in fixed sizes, ready-cut tubes are first provided with fittings on an automatic tube end processing machine, swaged if necessary, and then formed on bending machines. Despite their different makes and years of manufacture, the tube bending machines all have one thing in common: their quality check takes place on the AICON tube measuring machine TubeInspect.

A specialist in the area of tube manufacturing-EMW has successfully developed from a classical metalwork shop to a modern, creative tube manufacturing workshop. Since summer 2006, EMW has applied AICON's optical tube measuring system TubeInspect S for measuring sample tubes and setting-up the bending machines. Since then, EMW has not only considerably saved time in Reverse Engineering but also significantly decreased the costs of materials. In addition, Karl Eberl, owner of EMW emphasizes that the measuring results of TubeInspect are completely independent from the user so that they are reliable and repeatable.
