Tube Inspection System
Hexagon's TubeShaper environment can interface directly with one or more CNC tube benders.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s Tube Inspection System is a closed loop work cell featuring the TubeShaper software and a portable ROMER Absolute Arm coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) integrated with a fully automatic Pines CNC Bender. The work cell demonstrates an automated bend-measure-correct approach to streamlining tube production. This scalable system can address various sizes of tube and pipes to meet the needs of engineers, quality managers and shop-floor users at advanced manufacturing facilities. Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence develops closed loop manufacturing solutions like the TubeShaper work cell that utilize engineering, manufacturing, and quality data to deliver actionable intelligence. The TubeShaper environment can interface directly with one or more CNC tube benders, and includes an advanced CAD engine for importing and exporting tube data in various formats.
