Inspection system for geometry of couplings

This system is designed to measure the parameters of couplings according to API and special technical requirements for premium products.

  1. Outside diameter of coupling
  2. Length of coupling
  3. Inside diameter
  4. Wall thickness
  5. Chamfer
  6. Flank angles
  7. Thread height
  8. Lead
  9. Crest radiuses
  10. Gap radiuses
  11. Taper
  12. Crest thickness
  13. Standoff

Automated inspection system for thread geometry of oil and gas couplings is a portal coordinate measuring machine with a motorized rotary head. 2D laser scanner is installed on the motorized rotary head, which provides 5 degrees of freedom when moving relative to the coupling. The system has the following capabilities:

  • measurement of couplings with a diameter from 73 mm
  • measurement error of 5 microns
  • measurement performance from 1 coupling per minute
  • environment – laboratory or shop floor (depends on version)
  • operation integration with SCADA
  • operation log
  • maintaining the results database

The uniqueness of the system is that it produces a fully automatic measurement of all required parameters of both APl and premium couplings. Performance of the system allows to integrate it into the production chain for total control over the quality of parts. This is provided by intelligent software and the original design of the laser scanner. Thanks to these features, it became possible to achieve previously unattainable results in the problem of measuring couplings:

  • suppression of noise and speckles on various surfaces
  • obtaining a detailed point cloud containing more than 2 million points
  • visual analysis of the geometry of a 3D point cloud and its sections
  • comparison of point cloud with CAD model and drawing of a residual map
  • trend analysis, tool and equipment wear prevention
  • automatic adjustment of equipment due to feedback from the system
