VTUBE SOLUTION >

Collect data points from the cylinders of the tube straights using measuring device such as Faro arm or digitiser arm or ScanTech Handheld Scanner

The measured data is loaded directly into VTUBE LASER (software) which automatically creates parametric tube data (XYZ) and Bender data (LRA).

VTUBE can send the LRA data directly to your CNC Bender control.

Go ahead and Bend the first off tube !

VTUBE SOLUTION >

Import your customers’ CAD model file directly into VTUBE LASER (software). The AUTO-BUILD function will automatically creates parametric tube data (XYZ) and Bender data (LRA).

VTUBE can send the LRA data directly to your CNC Bender control.

Go ahead and Bend the first off tube !

VTUBE SOLUTION >

Measure that first off tube with the measuring device.

VTUBE will then align the measured tube data with the original Master Tube data and calculate the differences in XYZ. 

Resend the new LRA (with correction) to the Bender & Bend the next tube to true shape ! 

VTUBE SOLUTION >

Repeat the ‘measure function and compare to Master Tube at any time during production.

VTUBE SOLUTION >

VTUBE has report templates that you can select to display & print , export to Excel so you have confirmed inspection results for your customer & traceability record’s for your own QA. 

VTUBE SOLUTION >

You can save ALL the data from this job in VTUBE as a PROJECT file. Recall at any time the job comes up and your data is ready to use.
