TubeInspect - Automated, Simple & Effective way to measure free-form, bent tubes
What kinds of tubes can be measured optically with TubeInspect?
Optical tube measurement is a fast and efficient solution for measuring tubes ranging from highly flexible thin brake lines to large exhaust pipes for heavy trucks. Regardless of texture or color TubeInspect easily measures tubes of various shapes and sizes including tubes with varying bend radii.
The location of fixtures, supports and attachments can be measured with the aid of measuring adapters.
Anything with a cylindrical profile such as bent wires, molded tubes or combination of tubes and hoses.
The optional Tube Server software module allows the creation, editing and maintenance of the tube bending programs of many tube bending machine manufacturers.
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.
TubeInspect HD inspects small parts at Robert Bosch Company
EMW Tube relies on TubeInspect S for prototyping
In its plant in Hildesheim, Germany, the Company Robert Bosch produces vehicle equipment components, especially starters and electric steering drives. Since January 2008, Robert Bosch has applied AICON's new TubeInspect HD
for the inspection of formed cooper pins that are part of the starter motors. After extensive research, Robert Bosch concluded that only TubeInspect HD
is able to measure the filigreed geometries of these parts.

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.
