CALIPRI RC220 is a hand-held profile measuring instrument for high-precision sampling measurement of rolled products. With CALIPRI RC220, the cutting and cooling of samples for the evaluation of the contour is no longer necessary. The use of the optical profile measuring gauge thus speeds up the calibration of new rolled profiles. The system is mobile and can be moved quickly and easily from one rolling line to another.
The measuring device can be placed between rolling stands by hand or by means of a guiding device and can measure the profile of the still hot product in a matter of seconds. The result is displayed as a point curve on the system's tablet PC and the profile can be evaluated using predefined measurement specifications and template profiles.
When measuring with CALIPRI RC220, the sensor records the rolled profile from all sides and can thus evaluate both simple and complex profile shapes. After the measurement, the result can be exported as a report or data file.
The non-contact Calipri C4x series with rolling stock measurement modules meets the rail industry's need for a simple profile gauge with user-independent results for complete wheelset testing.
CALIPRI stands for multifunctionality all along the line. The non-contact measuring technology allows the inspection of wheel profile, wheel diameter, brake disc and back-to-back distance with one and the same measuring device. The patented CALIPRI principle automatically corrects user errors and thus leads to reproducible measurement results. The measuring system consists of a sensor and a tablet PC for defining the measuring sequence and entering limit values. Tolerances that are exceeded are indicated to the user by a traffic light system. The measurement data can then be printed or exported as a report.
Two versions are available: Calipri C42 for heavy rail vehicles and Calipri C41 for light rail vehicles.

CALIPRI C12 is a gap and flush measurement system that can be fully integrated into the line and is used for full checks of automobile bodies. The system can be used with standard industrial robots as well as HRC lightweight robots.
By using CALIPRI C12 in your production line, you are relying on highly-precise measurement results without any mathematical approximation methods as well as globally unique automatic rotation and tilt correction. The patented CALIPRI measurement method is used here – a further development of the laser light section technology.
The results from the automated measuring system can be compared with the data from the mobile gap measurement devices (CALIPRI C10/C14, CALIPRI C11/C15) due to cross-platform evaluation methods in order to detect deviations in the process and to derive appropriate measures from this.
OSIRIS is a stationary, optical measuring system for inline control of dimensional accuracy and surface quality of long products. With state-of-the-art laser light cutting technology and high scanning rates, the OSIRIS systems offer a complete 3D reconstruction of the product. With the OSIRIS Hot version, up to 1,100 degrees hot long products can be analyzed. The measurement results are displayed in real time on the control terminal and thus allow early corrective action to increase throughput and product quality.
The surface inspection function automatically detects and classifies deviations in the product surface (peeling, blow-outs, scoring, rolling etc.). In addition, profile cuts of the long product are simultaneously generated to check length dimensions such as width and height, various radii and angles.
Different system sizes allow the measurement of large and small long goods.
With the CALIPRI C14 wireless hand-held measuring device, you can evaluate gaps, edges and design lines with high accuracy and in seconds.
The measurement is carried out using the patented Calipri principle - a further development of the laser light section method with automatic tilt and roll correction - which eliminates possible misalignment of the sensor. The user defines the position, evaluation strategy and tolerances of the individual measuring points. The measurement is then carried out with a swivelling movement of the sensor. The sensor records the contour from different perspectives - down to the depth of the gap or completely around a fold edge. The software then evaluates the gap dimension, the flush and the radii. The measured values are displayed on the tablet PC and sensor and compared with predefined limit values using a traffic light system. The measurement data can then be printed as a report or exported as a data record and transferred to existing databases.
CALIPRI Prime allows you to measure the main flange dimensions of a railway vehicle wheel (height, thickness, qR) with top precision in just a few seconds. CALIPRI Prime can be used for all common heavy rail and light rail wheels. After measurement, the calculated measurements are displayed within seconds on the sensor and available for digital transfer to your PC.
In addition to this basic set, different add-ons are also available that you can purchase at any time - even at a later date. So, for instance, you can also measure wheel width, hollow tread and rollover and analyse the profile line in detail via smartphone.
CALIPRI C11 and CALIPRI C15 are hand-guided gap & flush measuring system for taking continuous inline measurements .

Specially developed for the conditions in final assembly, the automated optical measuring system CALIPRI CB20 measures gap and flush with the highest precision and repeatability, even on poorly or excessively reflective surfaces.
The key to this is the patented CaliBreezeTM technology, which uses a thin layer of condensed water to optimize the optical properties of different surfaces for measurement. After the measurement, which only takes a few seconds, the condensation layer disappears without residue.
CALIPRI CB20 integrates two patented technologies: CaliBreezeTM technology and the Calipri principle. The latter is a technology renowned in the industry and already integrated in all other CALIPRI solutions from Nextsense. Thus, the cross-platform measurement specifications allow the comparison of the measurement data of all CALIPRI solutions, which simplifies the optimization of production processes.

Laser Scanner Solution:
This task is a typical application of the high-resolution QuellTech 2D/3D Q5-880 Blue Laser Scanners. Two of these units are placed at the left and at the right of the measuring objects, at a defined inclination angle. Blue laser light in this case is a prerequisite, as the cast parts are red-hot, hence emitting in the red spectral range. Additionally, the client was in need of a software solution for the project, so a 3D point cloud processing application was implemented, performing inline and evaluating width, height and angle results.
QuellTech customer is able to inspect continuously the product quality, simultaneously avoiding scrap. He uses the same system for more than 10 different types of castings. Errors caused by manual inspection are considerably reduced, and safety for personnel is enhanced.
The QuellTech laser sensor family Q4 or Q5 used for these tasks is generally mounted on an arm of a rotational axis, to scan along the complete 360° angle of the internal surface in a sequence of strips. The Q4 sensors can also be used to control the weld seam tracking itself for rapid setup and ease of use. Even during a project, the range and scope of the Q Series sensor demonstrates the advantages of a modular system to quickly adapt to project needs, where the smallest system has provided fast analysis of pipes as small as 105mm. The low power, with standard communication protocols, enable battery powered systems to transmit wireless data to other systems for review and cloud back up.
