The QUANTUM 360 has a terahertz sensor that reverses along the pipe to be measured. The coverage corresponds to a full 360° over the entire circumference of the pipe. This allows a very accurate overview of all process parameters. After selecting the pipe recipe, the QUANTUM 360 detects the pipe position, centers itself automatically to the pipe via a cross table and the sensor is automatically moved into focus. When changing dimensions, only a change of the pipe recipe is required. Due to the high measuring frequency, wall thickness, diameter and multi-layer measurements are possible with layer thicknesses from 100 μm. This measurement system is therefore primarily used in PVC foam pipe production. In combination with gravimetry, thermal centering and other modules, the QUANTUM 360 provides a complete solution for the automation of pipe extrusion lines.
