Measurement Technology by SIKORA

Plastic Pipe Measurement & Control Technology

Due to varied fields, the requirements of the hose and tube market differ strongly depending on the application. With SIKORA you have a competent partner at your side that supports you to run your production line more efficient with new technologies and a strong market understanding – for medical tubes, multi-layer composite pipes, small or large tubes and many other applications.

The CENTERWAVE 6000 is a groundbreaking innovative key technology during the extrusion of big tubes.
Several transceivers, arranged around the circumference of a tube, for continuously sending and receiving frequency modulated millimeter waves measure online contactless and µm-precisely the diameter, ovality and wall thickness of big plastic tubes during the extrusion process – without knowledge of material properties and without coupling mediums.
