SIKORA measuring device and processor system combined ensure maximum performance during cable production

 

X-RAY 6000 PRO with ECOCONTROL 6000 processor systemWith the X-ray measuring system X-RAY 6000 PRO from SIKORA, quality control of cables is done fast and precisely, directly in the extrusion line. Within milliseconds, an X-ray image of the product is generated showing all measuring values, such as diameter, ovality, wall thickness and eccentricity. The measuring values are visualized on the monitor of the processor system ECOCONTROL 6000. SIKORA continuously optimizes the performance of the measurement solutions, enabling the operator to use its full potential for process optimization.

 

Since the early 1990s, SIKORA has been offering X-ray technologies in combination with processor systems for the quality control of cables. While processor systems of the first generation were limited to visualize four measuring values, their mean value as well as the smallest wall thickness, today, the operator receives a far more complex display due to a higher processor performance.

 

Basic visualization at the ECOCONTROL 6000 with eight measuring valuesThe X-RAY 6000 PRO for the measurement of multi-layered products is combined with the display and control system ECOCONTROL 6000, a powerful processor system with a vertically mounted 22” TFT monitor, which shows the measuring values numerically as well as graphically as trend and statistical data. The wall thickness is displayed at eight measuring values as standard. Additionally, an intelligent physical evaluation model determines the minimum wall thickness, meaning the available value that optimally supports the operator to control the process. Moreover, the physical model enables the visualization of the wall thickness at any position over the total circumference of the cable. For example, as an alternative to the standard display of eight measuring values, a visualization of 12 or more measuring values is possible. The operator selects how many points and at which position the values are being displayed. Furthermore, the processor system is used for an automatic control of the line speed, respectively extruder rpm. Hence, it guarantees to comply with given specifications as well as the highest performance for a maximum of process optimization and productivity.

 

The X-RAY 6000 is available as an alternative to the X-RAY 6000 PRO. The measuring system focuses on single layer products. The product data is displayed on an integrated 7” monitor at four measuring points. In combination with an ECOCONTROL 6000, 1000 or 600 processor system, a line control regarding line speed or extruder rpm can also be realized.
