Tolerance Checking Technology
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).
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
