SIKORA to flex muscles with quality control systems at Fakuma 2023

Source:Adsale Plastics Network 2023-09-08

At Fakuma in Friedrichshafen, Germany, SIKORA will be presenting its solutions for quality control in the hose, tube and pipe as well as plastics industry.


Inspection and sorting of plastic material


The modularly developed PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED will demonstrate how to reliably sort plastic material. In addition to optical 25 µm high-resolution cameras, which detect black specks and discolorations, an X-ray camera ensures the detection of metallic contamination.

Instead of using two optical cameras in common systems on the market, the SIKORA system features a third camera for higher detection rate, so that more contamination is detected. The interaction of reliable detection and intelligent sorting ensures highest material quality.


Live material tests


At the SIKORA booth, visitors are invited to bring samples to be tested with the inspection and analysis system PURITY CONCEPT V free of charge. They can inspect and analyze small quantities of crystalline and amorphous pellets, flakes or test plates for contamination.


The system is suitable for reproducible laboratory applications and detects black and colored contamination from a size of 50 µm as well as discolorations. Analysis takes less than a minute, including test certificate and HSV color chart of the detected color deviations.


Measurement of tubes and pipes


In the area of extrusion, SIKORA will present the CENTERWAVE 6000/250 for the real-time measurement of tubes in the diameter range from 32 to 250 mm during production based on millimeter wave technology.

In the line, the system enables gapless, reliable quality control as well as automatic control. The model is characterized by its simple operation. At the push of a button, the operator immediately receives continuous and precise measured values, without presetting the product parameters, without the influence of a coupling medium and without any calibration.


Measurement of tubes and hoses


How to reliably measure different layers of tubes and hoses during the extrusion process is demonstrated at the SIKORA booth by the X-ray measuring system X-RAY 6000 PRO, which can be used for product diameters from 0.65 to 270 mm, in combination with the processor system ECOCONTROL 6000.


The X-RAY 6000 PRO measures multilayer tubes and hoses based on X-ray technology.


At the 22" monitor the measuring values are displayed numerically as well as graphically as trend and statistical data. By default, the wall thickness is displayed at eight measuring points. The physical model also allows the wall thickness to be visualized over the entire circumference of the tube or hose at any point.


The company is going to present to visitors the X-RAY 6000 PURE for products where a single layer measurement is required.
