Highest quality at maximum cost efficiency – at the Plastpol 2023 from May 23 to 26, in Kielce, Poland, the measuring technology manufacturer SIKORA presents how these requirements can be combined in the extrusion of tubes and hoses through the perfect interaction of measuring and display system. At SIKORA’s first trade show appearance at Plastpol, visitors can look forward to live device demos and thus convince themselves of their performance.

Among others, the new CENTERWAVE 6000/250 for measuring tubes during extrusion based on millimeter wave technology will be exhibited. The system extends the CENTERWAVE family, which is already successfully established on the market, by a new model for smaller tube diameters from 32 to 250 mm. All dimensions of the tube, such as the diameter and wall thickness, are determined and visualized in real time over 360 degrees of the tube circumference. The measurement data obtained enables automatic control of the minimum wall thickness, taking into account the standard deviation of the extrusion line. Thus, saving potentials can be achieved to the maximum.

With the new X-RAY 6000 PURE SIKORA presents another new system for quality control during the extrusion of pipes and hoses. By means of X-ray technology the device measures single-layer products as well as the total wall thickness of multi-layer products and covers with two models product diameters from 6 to 110 mm. The measured values are visualized on a 15″ display; if required, automatic control to minimum wall thickness is also possible. For a resolution of up to 3 layers SIKORA also offers the measuring system X-RAY 6000 PRO.
