Emag’s non-contact pipe and coupling thread inspection system (TIS) is designed to save time and labor on an essential measuring process. The optical measuring system can be used autonomously or integrated into a complete production process. Advantages of the TIS include potential savings resulting from its automated operation, and measurement accuracy and short measuring times. Once measurements are taken, feedback is directed back to the machine tool’s CNC, allowing tool corrections to be made automatically and immediately during the machining process. This error-minimizing system is said to measure all thread types (API and premium threads), which eliminates a manual measurement process. This method also detects insert wear, which allows optimal insert changes to be performed, thereby reducing tool costs and downtimes due to worn tools.
