Light and medium sections

In the production of light and medium sections, the product diversity places a particular challenge on contour measurement. Different types of sections generate different demands on the contour measurement based on the qualitative aspects of the profile accuracy, and on the given conditions at the production line.

TBK systems measure almost all types of profile. The different quality requirements of profile types are accounted for by special sets of key values. Changeover from one profile type to the next is fully automated without intervention by the operator. This results in significant time and cost benefits in production.

Specific capability

  • Measurement of all common types of sections
  • Individual tolerance specifications
  • Software and measurement system can be individually customized to production conditions
  • Profile changeover without operator intervention; software automatically switches over
  • Savings in time and cost through optimization of production
  • Many years of experience

  • Measuring system with “C” frame
  • Permits movement of the measurement frame during production
  • Calibration and maintenance of the measuring system is possible without stop of production
