Use of stroboscopes for speed measurement, preventive maintenance and verification of print defects

High brightness Xeon portable stroboscopes
High brightness Xeon portable stroboscopes

Measurement applications of print speed and quality in the printing industry, directly on the production line, without downtime or slowing down the process.

Applications of observation of repetitive movements for the determination of any assembly errors or preventive wear of moving parts.

Measurement visualization on easily readable display and controls designed for easy synchronization of the number of flashes per second with the process under observation.

Battery powered models for easy and easy transport or with mains power supply for fixed applications on production lines.

Stroboscopes are tools that allow you to observe and studying an object in motion, which can be rotary or oscillatory, as if it were stationary, as well as measure its speed.

The operating principle is based on the observation, in low light conditions, of the object in constant motion, illuminated by very short flashes of high intensity light.

When you observe a perfectly still image of the object in motion, it means that the flashing frequency of the stroboscope coincides with the speed of rotation or of the oscillatory motion. speed measurement itself, without any contact with the moving mechanism

The main element consists of a special xenon or LED lamp capable of emitting up to 5000 flashes per second, or 300000 per minute. This very high frequency value allows you to observe an object that cyclically moves, vibrates or rotates on its axis even at very high frequencies.

Verification island that allows the non-destructive control of mechanical parts
directly on the production line. It is characterized by an autonomous platform which
integrates an automatic manipulator capable of picking up the piece directly from the line
of production (both on oriented pallets and on sliding belt with recognition
automatic orientation of the piece). The manipulator carries the part to be checked
in the control area where there are one or more measuring instruments (durometers,
profilometers, roughness meters, eddy-current probes, multi-level instruments, roundness meters or any other
other automatic measuring instrument). After checking the manipulator
provides to bring the detail directly into the production flow of the line if the result is
positive. In case of non-compliance, the system takes the part off line for the
subsequent analysis and, if necessary, adjust the parameters
production or the controlled stop of the production process.

Static and dynamic dimensional control island of railway halls. The system provides in
completely automatic way to check all the dimensional parameters of a room
railway (diameters, multi-section wheel profiles, gauges, oscillations, lengths,
skids and positions). In addition to traditional wheel and axle controls
checks are also carried out on the spindles and brake discs. The type of dining room
analyze and all related parameters to be analyzed (wheel model, dimensions, presence
or absence of bushings, presence or absence of brake discs and relative positions) come
loaded automatically by reading a barcode and a computer connection
to the production server. At the end of the control process the room is returned to the flow
production and the related report is sent to the central database for decisions by
take in the subsequent stages of production.
