STATISTIC REPORTS

KaliX is a series of vision inspection machines for non-contact measurement of components of any shape. Thanks to machine vision technology, accurate measurements can be obtained at the touch of a button.

The KaliX series is specifically designed to measure rubber gaskets, plastic and metal parts and various other components. KaliX systems are recommended for use throughout the entire production process, including acceptance of every work phase and final laboratory validation of first articles and production series.

The KaliX series includes 4 models with increasingly larger fields of view up to Ø 160 mm. Each model integrates  a 5 Mpixel progressive scan camera, a nearly zero distortion bi-telecentric lens and a collimated backlight for superior edge sharpness. 

The light and robust aluminum frame with locking casters makes the machine easy to move around.

Typical configuration includes:

  • PC with Windows operating system
  • 17” LCD touch screen
  • Printer
  • UPS group

The software allows the user to set and store the chosen parameters for every single article so that they can be reused for each subsequent batch.

Dual Mag version
The KaliX Dual Mag machine is ideal to accurately measure round parts of various sizes. Thanks to the unique dual FoV design, you can accurately measure parts up to Ø 160 mm FoV or switch to the higher magnification vision module to accurately measure small parts or cross sections up to Ø 27 mm FoV.
