The Nextsense Calipri range is the next generation of non-contact dimensional and profilometer optical encoders. The swiveling measuring devices work with high precision and detect even the smallest deviations reliably and user-independently.
With the help of lasers and an innovative technology that corrects tilting and twisting of the measuring device, Calipri manages to output the most important measured quantities to the sensor within seconds and automatically compare them with the individual limit values. The calculated actual and target contours are shown in color on the display of the Toughpad FZ-G1 .
Individual solutions through a multitude of measuring modules
The measuring devices of the Calipri series adapt to the given requirements in all situations.
At the steel mill, Nextsense’s simple, portable measuring tools are used for strand measurement. Where previously simple measurements with wood rods that were burned away were on the agenda, nowadays the non-contact and modern measurement with Calipri replaces the outdated, less precise method. By contrast, the new method can deliver high-precision and reproducible results, even before the strands are cooled, independently of the user, which enables the early detection of errors and quality assurance.
In car manufacturing, where aesthetics and precision play a major role, Calipri is also used. Cars with practically invisible gaps, which seem to be unified, are made possible by the gauges, which detect even the smallest deviations. Thanks to the intuitive swivel movement, even complex contours and difficult-to-see columns can be measured real.
For the railway industry, the Calipri module “wheel profile” in combination with the Toughpad offers user-independent testing of rails and wheel profiles, as well as reliable documentation of the measurement results. Thus, even under adverse conditions such as strong sunlight or wind and weather, the essential flange dimensions, but also wheel width, hollow and rolling over can be determined by contactless measurement.
Optimal supplement to the Nextsense systems:
The Panasonic FZ-G1
Nextsense Calipri meters are exposed to a wide range of environmental extremes, some of them extreme. That’s why Nextsense systems use the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1.
This not only works reliably in very demanding, dusty environments, but also provides the necessary high-performance computing for real-time analysis. Customers value the low default rates and good support provided by the stable partnership with PWA.
