Romidot with years of development and experience with hundreds of successful installations in Profiles Extrusion plants, have spurred the development of the Romidot RomiShape\DT-PVC system and redefined the meaning of Profile Inspection & Measurement when invented the concept of the RomiShape in 1994.
Romidot RomiShape\DT-PVC is desktop machine, a Scanner based concept for Profile Inspection and designed to be installed in the laboratory or rooms locates at the production floor.
Romidot RomiShape\DT-PVC utilizes a high resolution scanner technology that scans the cross section of the sample profile, directly with a Reflection mode (for bright and light colors) or with Backlight mode (for black or dark colors) or with a composite of the 2 modes (reflection and backlight) for profiles that includes several colors or different materials. The scanning area size of the machine is 290x200mm. The scanner technology requires a clean sample surface, with sharp edges no burrs and perpendicular cutting (for Backlight mode), as achieved by the Romidot Special Sample Saw machines Romidot SM420U and Romidot SM600.
RomiShape\DT-PVC 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 only 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, this is the reason that the RomiShape\DT-PVC supplied together with the Romidot SM420U or SM600 sample preparation Saw machine, to minimize this effect in the Backlight mode.
The accuracy and the repeatability of the RomiShape\DT-PVC 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\DT-PVC system installed integrally with the Romidot Shadow application – including Romidot DimPack an engineering application for prepare the measuring programs for automatic inspection, Romidot ViewPack for remote viewing & measurement, and Romidot StatPack application – an automatic SPC application that allows in “one click” to get full SPC reports and Graphs.
Romidot RomiShape\DT-PVC system can work as a stand-alone machine or in configuration of plant corporate network.
