Dimensional Measurement

Dimensional measurement

A wide and versatile range of accurate and remote measuring systems serving forging operations. The range counts applications for the under press 2D measurement or visual control and for full 3D reconstruction of the forged pieces.

In the open die forging sector, dimensional controls are usually carried out in manual way. The quality and accuracy of the measurements strictly depend on the operator's skills and production downtime are required. Some measures, useful to optimize forging operations are very difficult to get, and some other measures are quite long or imprecise.
Furthermore, the presence of hot material makes this task difficult and it represents a major risk for the operators safety.

3D Portal

Measuring system for the 3D survey and dimensional check of hot or cold forgings
3D PORTAL is an optical system, based on phase shift ranging, for the 3D survey and automatic dimensional check of hot or cold open die forgings according to use in the forging phase or in the finishing working process.
The system, thanks to its flexible configuration, can be employed for the dimensional measurement of a wide range of open-die forgings, both axial-symmetric and special pieces, even for high-duty applications.
