Profile measurement.

The Profile360 on-line 360[degrees] profile measurement system is said to provide full profile measurement for extrusion, drawing and roll forming processes in the rubber and plastics industries. The Profile360 continuously measures the outside profile of a moving product and displays a pass/fail status. A virtual caliper utility permits the user to set individual measurements and pass/fail limits for critical dimensions. Caliper tools include thickness and/or width, radius, angle and error measurement. Data display options include the measured value, variation, trend graph or histogram, as well as statistical data such as Cp, Cpk, standard deviation and mean. A report writer allows documentation of production run data, including statistics and trend graphs. The Profile360 accepts design files from any CAD system supporting the DXF format. The measurement data are automatically rotated and fitted to the CAD design. The Profile360 provides analog outputs for process control. All measurement results are logged to a data file that can be accessed by Ethernet. PLC communications are also supported. (Bytewise Measurement Systems)
