Nugget Profiler, product background
Detects the position of a seam on a round pipe.
Uses magnetism to perform non-destructive inspection.
Not affected by reflectance, color (shading) or lighting , because no optical components are included.
Detects seams even on dented or otherwise damaged products.
Not affected by oil or other substances on pipe surfaces.
Takes only 8 seconds to complete inspection, including bringing the seam into position (for 50-mm dia. round pipes).
Performs non-contact inspection.
(The distance between the sensor and the pipe being inspected must be kept constant.)
Requires no complicated parameter settings (for 360-degree inspection).
Detects the seam on a seam-welded pipe.
Inspects pipes produced by rolling sheet steel into a cylindrical shape and then welding the seam as shown in the figure below.
