ECCO

MEASURE EARLIER, CENTER FASTER, SAVE TIME AND MATERIAL IN THE LONG TERM.

The centering aid which is placed early in the process is a necessity for everyone, whose goal is to consequently avoid scrap production and save raw material. ECCO measures the wall thickness already in the vacuum tank and provides for a fast and precise pipe centering by automatic calibration. Especially for thick-walled large pipes this means a key production advantage and the investment pays for itself already after a few production start-ups. The ultrasonic sensors are adjusted to the pipe geometry with pneumatically controlled sensor arms. The recorded values are evaluated by the high-resolution ultrasound electronics and displayed on a 10" display either percentage or in millimetres.
