Xiris expands into tube production

PUBLISHED: 16 Aug 08

Xiris Automation Inc, Canada, has developed a software package for vision systems that it plans to introduce to the tube industry. The software, Laservision?, is at the heart of the company?s newest solution. The system runs on Windows? 2000/XP using VB or Visual C++?.

Laservision is a 3D machine vision software package designed for tube applications in which highly accurate, repetitive measurements are required. The software can function as a precision measurement tool, a locating system, a feature presence/absence inspection system, or pattern matching system.

When integrated with the appropriate hardware, it can perform machine vision tasks on the production line, providing 100 per cent inspection of high-speed production volumes. This tool set will also be geared for a number of OEM partners as part of their products.

Xiris has used this software to develop a vision system, which is currently in beta testing, to evaluate the V angle, mismatch, edge presentation during forming in welded tube production. The company plans to finish beta testing and have the final product ready for October 2008.

Says Mr Pierre Huot, vice president at Xiris, ?It has by no means been an easy endeavour to clear the technical hurdles to meet the market needs; nevertheless we are quite excited about the value Xiris and the platform will bring to the industry.?

Xiris Automation is a specialist in optical quality control, and offers expertise in ?in focus? measuring.
