Inspection system for geometry of pipes

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

  1. Outside diameter of pipe
  2. Chamfer
  3. Flank angles
  4. Thread height
  5. Lead
  6. Lead, min (by 5 leads)
  7. Crest radiuses
  8. Gap radiuses
  9. Taper
  10. Crest thickness
  11. Standoff

Automated inspection system for thread geometry of oil and gas pipes is a portal coordinate measuring machine. Rig of four 2D laser scanners is installed on the CMM’s quill, which provides 3 degrees of freedom when moving relative to the pipe. The system has the following capabilities:

  • measurement error of 5 microns
  • measurement performance from 1 pipe 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 pipes. 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 pipes:

  • 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
