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.

Moisture measurements of wood and fiberglass hulls with portable meters

Moisture measurement on wooden and fiberglass hulls

Detection and localization of osmosis phenomena on boats or parts exposed to high humidity

Verification of the state of drying of products before painting or aesthetic treatments

The Tramex Skipper Plus, non-destructive moisture meter, provides a complete and safe method for detecting excess humidity in fiberglass and wooden hulls. The Skipper Plus is a pocket hygrometer, designed to locate humidity in the hulls and accessories of the boat.

Three scales for humidity detection in GRP and hardwood for salt and fresh water.

  • Wide range of wood readings from 5% to 30% on a hardwood scale and from 0 to 100 on a comparative scale for fiberglass and other materials.
  • Identifies the presence of osmosis in fiberglass hulls.
  • Confirm if the wooden boats are dry enough for painting or varnishing.
  • Track leaks on decks and bulkheads.
  • The "Hold" function facilitates the recording of readings.
  • Soft rubber electrodes provide direct contact without scratching.
  • Audio warning tone for high humidity can be activated or deactivated.
  • Battery operated (included)

Application

Measure the presence of osmosis phenomena on fiberglass boats.

Locate any parts that have a more pronounced exposure to osmosis than other areas.

Check the state of conservation of wooden boats or the degree of humidity before aesthetic treatments, painting or impregnation.

Solution

Skipper Plus is based on the principle of measuring non-destructive impedance. Coplanar electrodes, mounted on the base of the instrument, transmit low frequency signals in the tested material and measure the variation of impedance caused by the presence of humidity. This reading is indicated on the instrument as a reading of the moisture content.

  • Three ranges for moisture detection in fiberglass and hardwood for fresh and salt water.
  • Wide range of wood readings from 5% to 30% on the hardwood scale and from 0 to 100 on a comparative scale for GRP and other materials
  • Identifies the presence of osmosis in fiberglass hulls.
  • Confirm if the wooden boats are dry enough for painting or varnishing.
  • Track leaks on deck and bulkheads.
  • The "Hold" function facilitates the recording of readings.
  • The soft rubber electrodes come into direct contact without scratching.
  • High humidity acoustic warning tone that can be turned on or off.
  • Battery operated (included)

The Skipper Plus moisture meter is used for:

  • Timely detection before the appearance of osmotic bubbles.
  • Identification of the affected area.
  • Hull monitoring during dehumidification and repair phases.
  • Checking the drying of the abraded areas before recoating.

To obtain lasting finishes and resistance of hulls and wooden components, it is essential to ensure that they are well maintained and that they do not contain excess humidity.

Excess humidity can create phenomena of structural and aesthetic deterioration, both on wooden and fiberglass hulls or special composite materials.

Measurement applications of distance, positions, lengths and depths with industrial laser distance meters for the steel and metallurgical sector

Generation of out of tolerance alarms with visual signaling (light tower) or with electrical contact for sirens and alarms. Direct connection to PLC, SCADA systems or remote data acquisition systems.

Measurement visualization on giant displays with management of remote transmission of acquired data or with integrated data logger for process traceability.

Measurement of objects up to 30 meters on a natural surface and up to 100 meters on a reflective surface.

RODER presents the new series of REDAM LDM giant displays to create display and monitoring systems to be connected to LDM series LASER distance meters.

The REDAM LDM series has been specially developed for the connection with LASER LDM series distance meters allowing the real time display of the measurement made by the LASER distance meter.

The visualization takes place on a giant display, visible even from a great distance, or transmitted to remote terminals through Wi-Fi networks or Ethernet networks.

All the displayed measurements can be compared with tolerance thresholds in order to generate alarms in case of out-of-tolerance when certain thresholds are exceeded or visual signals able to guide the operator to any adjustment operations (red value represents an out-of-tolerance value, yellow represents a warning signal, green value the measurement is acceptable).

Typical applications

  • Checking the diameter of coils and coils
  • Size measurement of billets, blooms and slabs
  • Position control of overhead cranes with anti-collision or parallelism control function
  • Loop control on unwinders and winders
  • Position measurement of trolleys
  • Measurement of cutting position on mobile carriages
