Tolerance Checking Technology

Auto Tool ID OD in Pipe

Pipe mill purchases new OMS tolerance checking technology

OMS has launched the new Auto Tolerance Checker with a number of orders already secured from pipe producers. The tool carries out 2,000 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 1,000 data points that provide users with minimum, maximum and average measurements of internal diameter (ID), outer diameter (OD), wall thickness (WT) and out-of-roundness (OoR).

Features include:

  • Tool accuracy to 0.05 mm

  • Checks pipe sizes from 4” to 36”

  • Each measurement takes approximately 12 seconds

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