Inspect Complex Profiles On-line Automatically.

A developer of automatic quality-control systems, Romidot Ltd. of Lod, Israel, showed a new device at NPE 2000 that automatically inspects hollow or solid profiles up to 3-in. diam. RomiShape Mini DX uses x-ray cameras and PC software to reconstruct and verify a profile cross-section with accuracy of [+ or -]0.0005 in. It will be beta tested in Italy later this year. Romidot previously commercialized a similar profile-inspection system using CCD cameras.

Profilemaster from Zumbach Electronics, Mt. Kisco, N.Y., also inspects irregular shapes on moving lines but is limited to profiles up to 1 in. square. It was developed by the German firm KJM, which Zumbach bought last year. Profilemaster uses four to six lasers and a similar number of CCD cameras.
