Radar technology measures the diameter and ovality of steel pipes
SIKORA’s RADAR SCAN 6000 is based on progressive, high resolution radar technology and represents an innovative alternative to the optical triangulation technology. The RADAR SCAN 6000 measures online and contactless, simultaneously from several directions, the diameter and ovality of metal pipes. It completely records to micron accuracy measuring values over 360° of the circumference of the pipe. In addition, fast rotating metal pipes can be precisely measured. The radar measuring system requires no time-consuming calibration, is insensitive to dust, heat and steam and continuously delivers precise measuring values. Due to the narrow design, the RADAR SCAN 6000 can easily be integrated into the production process. The technology is suitable for blank, rough as well as cold or hot surfaces.
Evaluation and display
Diameter and ovality are shown in real time. A processor system offers a numerical visualization of the measuring values and their graphical visualization as well as extensive trend and statistical functions.
