Pipe mill purchases new OMS tolerance checking technology

OMS has launched the new Auto Tolerance Checker and has dispatched the first order this week. The tool carries out 2000 scans which are calibrated and verified to traceable standards, and allows pipe manufacturers to accurately measure pipe end geometry. The scanned profile is smoothed out to 1000 data points that provide users with average measurements of internal diameter (ID), outer diameter (OD), wall thickness (WT) and out of roundness (OoR), which also include the minimum and maximum averages.

Features include:

• Tool accuracy to 0.05mm

• Checks pipe sizes from 4” to 36”

• Each measurement takes approximately 15 seconds

• The tool is fully portable and can be used in a multitude of locations
