This intelligent length control system operates contactless with two digital cameras positioned above the ends of the tube. The result of the length control from the cameras is combined and analysed by a programme which determines any discrepancy in the length of the tube compared to a reference point.
The machine has a capacity of over 6,000 tubes per hour. Any tubes that do not meet the specifications required are separated. The programme also recognises chips on the tube ends so that they do not influence the process.
