STATISTIC REPORTS

KaliX 500 is a visual inspection machine for automatic measurement of components of every shape, without any contact, through manual loading and unloading. It integrates the existing KaliX serie extending its field of view to 500 mm.

No-contact measurement is the capability of the machine to measure dimensions of an article through machine vision systems, obtaining the required information directly from images. KaliX 500 is designed to measure rubber gaskets, plastic items, metal parts and most other components within the limits of its field of view. 

KaliX 500 is equipped with a high resolution CCD progressive scan camera and with a field of view up to Ø 500 mm. It has got bi-telecentric lenses very low distortion and a collimated light. The support is an aluminium undercarriage, while the measuring parts are placed on a glass sliding surface.

Typical installations are delivered with:

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

The software allows to set and store the parameters for every single article so they can be used for the subsequent batches.


CONTROL FEATURE FOR CIRCULAR PIECES

Feature for the inspection of parts with circular profile with the following characteristics.

  • Measurement of median, maximum and minimum inside and outside diameters
  • Measurement of the average, max and min radial section
  • Measurement of roundness
  • Measurement of cross section oscillation
  • Management of single or series measurement

 

CONTROL FEATURE FOR COMPLEX PIECES

Features for the inspection of parts with complex shape pieces with the following characteristics:

  • Measurement of distances
  • Radii measurement
  • Angles measurement
  • Holes measurement
  • Management of single or series measurement

 

CONTROL SOFTWARE

The machine is equipped with a software for generic seals (any shape) dimensional control, with the following characteristics:

  • Articles management with code and description
  • Single or multipart measurement management
  • Measurement of the average inner/outer diameter with tolerances
  • Measurement of the average radial cross section with tolerances
  • Roundness inspection
  • Waviness inspection
  • Measurement of distances
  • Radii measurement
  • Angles measurement
  • Statistical histogram chart of the series (“X-bar” diagram)
  • Statistical report with CP and CPK factors
  • Print and save management

The output values are all given according to the measurements units of the International System of Units.


TACTILE SENSOR OPTIONAL DEVICE

Tactile sensor is used for the measurement of the axial cord of O-Rings and for the thickness of section orthogonal to the supporting plane.

Technical features:

  • Possibility to measure in several points
  • Automatic sensor positioning of the sample thanks to the software
