UltraPipe™ Ultrasonic Pipe Measurement System

In-Process Pipe Wall Measurement

Adding to the success of the UltraGauge+™ ultrasonic measurement system, LaserLinc offers the UltraPipe™, for in-process ultrasonic wall measurement of PVC, CPVC and other rigid pipes.

Ultrasonic technology is ideal for rigid pipe applications. The UltraPipe fits into any pipe extrusion process as a self-contained, free-standing system. Ultrasonic transducers mounted on pneumatic arms rotate around the pipe to inspect 360 degrees, providing vital measurements that include minimum, maximum, and average wall thickness.

You can also integrate one of LaserLinc’s full line of laser micrometers for complete in-line ID/OD/Wall measurement.

With a return on investment measured in weeks, not years, the UltraPipe can start saving you money today. One hundred percent in-line wall thickness measurement means you can save material by controlling to a minimum wall specification. If quality is your key concern, then one hundred percent in-line ID/OD/Wall measurement will help keep you from exceeding specification limits. Advanced I/O capabilities make sorting good and bad product a reality.

LaserLinc’s Total Vu™ software provides a dynamic interface with customizable graphical displays. Collect and store measurement and SPC data, view live trend charts, x-bar/range charts, histograms, and keep your product in spec with feedback control loops—whatever your needs, Total Vu puts you in command of your process.

Total Vu offers a variety of ways to document quality, including SPC report, flaw report (lumps and neckdowns or thin spots), logging of measurement data to standard .CSV file format, and customizable, automated reports with user-created Microsoft Excel templates. Excel-based reporting allows creation of any report you need to fit any Windows-based printer. Excel files are also saved to disk.
