Pixargus: Hybrid inspection system checks material and contour at the same time


High speed and precision combined into one system. Figure 1: During inline inspection, the tubing first runs through the Allroundia measuring head (in the background) and then through the Medictube light ring and the Medictube measuring head (shown in the opened condition), which accommodates the cameras.

Würselen, Germany, February 2, 2012. At Medtec 2012, Pixargus will introduce its all-in-one solution for optical inline inspection of medical tubing. Being a dual-head system, it combines the new Allroundia system for fast and precise inspection of the tubing contours and the proven Medictube system for checking the material walls for irregularities such as inclusions or bubbles.

In the past, tubing material could only be checked offline on a random basis or manually, involving a high degree of uncertainty. Now, with the new system, it is possible to inspect the complete material in real time already during production. The system automatically sorts out any flaw material, relieving the operators in their final inspection activities.
According to Björn Lindner, Managing Director of Pixargus, the new dual-head system provides major benefits for both manufacturers and users of tubing: "Using this new solution, our customers can now at the same time check the interior of the tubing material - for bubbles, holes, cracks, impurities or inclusions - and measure the outside contours by a multi-axis system. This guarantees that only perfectly flawless material is sold."

The Pixargus "Dual Head" system

Medictube: flawless material

Medictube detects bubbles, holes or inclusions in the material. The new integrated pattern-recognition feature now also identifies structures inside the tubing material, such as spirals embedded in semi-transparent, shape-retaining suction hoses. The system checks the shape of the spirals and triggers an alarm as soon as deviations are identified.

Allroundia: perfect dimensions

AllRoundia for the first time combines the functions of a "high-speed node controller" with those of a "high-precision diameter and ovality inspection system" into one reasonably priced device. The system measures the outside contour of the tubing in three axes and performs diameter and ovality inspections with an accuracy of 1 to 2 Ám at a rate of up to 36,000 measurements per second.
