LaserLinc (Fairborn, Ohio) recently launched a high-speed, online inspection and measurement system called FlawSense.

The system enables manufacturers of high-specification tube, pipe, and wire and cable to detect surface defects during manufacturing and change processes accordingly. Intended uses include measuring flaws and outside diameter and ovality in medical tubing.

FlawSense provides a single instrument measurement, with data visualized in TotalVu, LaserLinc’s graphical user interface.

The technology behind FlawSense consists of at least three laser sources symmetrically disposed about the tube or pipe or wire. Each laser beam passes through optics to project a linear array of light and a CMOS array sensor collects light reflected from the product’s surface. The sensor array provides multipoint measurements of triangula…
