Romidot with years of development and experience with hundreds of successful installations in Profiles Extrusion plants, have spurred the development of the Romidot RomiShape\AL-A4 system and redefined the meaning of Profile Inspection & Measurement when invented the concept of the RomiShape in 1994.
Romidot RomiShape\AL-A4 is a Scanner based concept for Profile Inspection in Production floor environment, designed and developed to inspect the Geometrical dimensions of wide range of Aluminum profiles, such as Industrials Profiles, Constructions Profiles and Door & Windows profiles, types of profiles, with inspection requirements such as GD&T, etc.
Romidot RomiShape\AL-A4 utilizes a high resolution scanner technology that scans directly with a reflection mode the cross section of the sample profile. The scanning area size of the machine is 340x200mm. The scanner technology requires a clean sample surface, with sharp edges no burrs, as achieved by the Romidot Special Sample Saw machines Romidot SM420U and Romidot SM600.
RomiShape\AL-A4 system (same as other Romidot scanner based systems), is unique from the other competitive scanner systems concept. Romidot RomiShape systems are the only systems that working with a reflected and direct illumination concept, that brings accurate & true image-data of the profile cross section shape to the scanners camera. Romidot competitive systems, with scanner concept, working with Back Light illumination have a major shortfall. The shadow casted on the scanner surface, due to sample’s height inclination (non-perpendicularity to the surface), is equal to the entire systems accuracy or more and results in overall false results especially in small entities.
The accuracy and the repeatability of the RomiShape\AL-A4 is ≤25µm and the measuring cycle time for the largest sample profile for all the entire scanning area size is ≤45sec while for typical sample size, measuring cycle time is ≤18sec.
Romidot RomiShape\AL-A4 system installed integrally with the Romidot Shadow application – including Romidot DimPack an engineering application for prepare the measuring programs for automatic inspection, Romidot ViewPack, and Romidot StatPack applications – an automatic SPC application that allows in “one click” to get full SPC reports and Graphs.
Romidot RomiShape\AL-A4 system can work as a standalone machine or in configuration of plant corporate network.
