The state-of-the-art Copra® Rollscanner roll tool contour quality inspection machine

For the first time in India, data M Software has introduced a roll tool quality inspection machine to the tube and rollforming industry. data M Software India Pvt Ltd, based in Bangalore, is now offering Copra? Rollscanner technology for the Indian market including sales, training and scan services.

The Copra Rollscanner roll tool contour quality inspection machine has already achieved great success in Europe. Using the Copra RollScanner, deviations on the roll tool contour can be detected by comparing scanned results with the designed contour. Drawing of the scanned contour and deviation reports are generated automatically.

Based on several years of R&D, Copra RollScanner has evolved to become a quick and simple roll tool quality inspection machine. Unlike other machines available in the market, Copra RollScanner has been developed specifically for the tube and rollforming industry.

The system ensures noncontact and continuous measurement with minimal human interference, thereby achieving the highest possible accuracies. In the rollforming industry, it is usually necessary to maintain the roll tool quality within the desired tolerance in order to produce quality products. However, in reality the rolls are subjected to maintenance by reprofiling without the knowledge of deviations that have occurred due to wear during production.

It is often assumed that an accurate template can verify the quality of the roll tool contour. However, a template can only match and cannot measure the deviation in the contour. Thus, the resulting quality is more visual without being logical.

The Copra? Roll tool database management system provides the additional capability of recording roll tool data. The user must first scan all the rolls in the shop floor inventory and put them into the database. The user can then track identical rolls from various projects, check the reuse of scrap rolls, and accurately generate the roll drawing.

Profile measurement comes as an added feature with the scanning enhancement option. Therefore, inspecting the profile quality is also improved.
