At Chinaplas 2021, from April 13 to 16, 2021, in Shenzhen, SIKORA will present its innovative measuring, control, inspection, analysis and sorting systems. At the SIKORA booth, visitors can expect a comprehensive portfolio of devices for quality control, process optimization and cost savings in the pipe, hose and tube as well as plastics industries.

For online inspection and sorting of plastic material, SIKORA showcases the PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED. The system uniquely combines an X-ray with up to three optical cameras. Therefore, metal inclusions with a size down to 50 µm in the raw material can be detected. Furthermore, black specks and burns on the pellet’s surface are detected by the optical cameras. Faulty pellets are separated immediately after detection via compressed air. The integrated software provides the operator with a statistical evaluation including information about the size, area and number of the detected contaminants during production.

The PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED detects metallic contamination inside the pellet as well as black specks and burns on the pellet’s surface.

For a 100 % quality control during the extrusion of pipes, SIKORA exhibits the CENTERWAVE 6000, a system based on millimeter wave technology. The device precisely measures the diameter, ovality, wall thickness, the inner profile as well as the sagging of the pipe. The measuring principle does not require any coupling media or calibration and is not influenced by temperature or the plastic material. “The easy operation of the CENTERWAVE 6000 and its precision lead to the highest quality of the final product as well as cost savings and optimal efficiency.“ explains Wanbin Chen, President of SIKORA China, and adds, “We look forward to joining this year’s Chinaplas and to meeting our customers at the tradeshow.”

The CENTERWAVE 6000 for online pipe dimension measurement in extrusion lines will be presented at Chinaplas.

The X-RAY 6000 PRO is a further highlight at the SIKORA booth. It measures the wall thickness, eccentricity, the inner and outer diameter and the ovality of hoses and tubes. Hereby, the thickness of up to three different material layers is measured. SIKORA’s presentation in Shenzhen is completed by reliable diameter measuring systems of the LASER Series 2000 as well as LASER Series 6000, which in addition also offer a lump detection.
