Sikora exhibits latest measuring innovations CHINAPLAS 2022 in Shanghai saw Sikora present its innovative measuring, control, inspection, analysis and sorting systems. At the Sikora booth, visitors found a portfolio of devices for quality control, process optimisation and cost savings in the pipe, hose and tube as well as plastics industries. camera solution, where three optical cameras are directly aligned to one point. This is used for the inspection and sorting of strand pellets. Thanks to the optical cameras, discolorations of transparent materials are reliably detected. The integration of intelligent blue LED homogeneous illumination also avoids shadow detection.
For online inspection and sorting of plastic pellets Sikora presented the Purity Scanner Advanced. For inspection of XLPE pellets in high voltage cable production, the Purity Scanner Advanced includes optical cameras and X-ray technology. In this combination, the X-ray camera detects metallic contaminants inside the pellet down to a size of 50µm. In addition, burns and black specks on the pellet surface are detected by the optical cameras and automatically sorted out. The integrated software provides the operator with a statistical evaluation with information on size, area and number of detected impurities in the production process. Sikora also offers a three
For a100per cent quality control during the extrusion of pipes, Sikora exhibited the Centerwave 6000, a system based on millimetre wave technology. The device precisely measures the diameter, ovality, wall thickness and 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,” explained Wanbin Chen, president of Sikora China.
The X-RAY 6000 PRO was a further highlight at the Sikora booth. It measures wall thickness, eccentricity, inner and outer diameter and the ovality of hoses and tubes. The Centerwave 6000 for online pipe dimension measurement in extrusion lines was presented at Chinaplas
