More than measurement

TI-2 is the newest version of the system for precise and automated dimensioning of punches and also for die bore wear assessment, which is based on the latest technological developments in the field of optical measurements.

The patented algorithm for combining the simultaneous measurement of the synchronous movement in the XY plane enables the determination of the geometric parameters of the most complex pressing parts.

Moreover, the presence of a dedicated video system with a resolution of 5 Mpix, on the one hand allows for the facilitation of optical Quality Assessment of the tools, and opens the path to perform the automatic dimensioning of multi-tip punches and die wear assessment.

Measurements performed without the risk of damaging punches
Thanks to the fully automated measurement process, there is no risk of damaging the head, the bowl or another element of the punch and the die.

Quicker and more precise measurements - just one click away
Ti-2 conducts the measurements in real-time, simultaneously saving the dimensions, automatically, directly in the database. Adoption of this solution means that the tool inspection time is considerably shorter than in the case of traditional measurements.

Minimized number of tablets rejected due to improper weight
Based on the results obtained, the Ti-2 measurement machine allows to automatically steam single and multiple punches. Tool pairing allows achieving an optimized pressure value, translating directly into a reduction in losses caused by tablets rejected due to weight-related non-conformities.

Precise engraver measurements
We have equipped the Ti-2 with a camera and image analysis algorithms making it possible to measure the engraver positioned on the punch bowl. Such an approach considerably mitigates the risk of producing defective items and batches of products. Engraver measurements are performed with the precision of up to 1 μm. Importantly, the user can define their own tolerance limits.

Determination of permissible engraver wear levels
Thanks to the fact that the engraver or other elements of the bowl are measured based on the contactless method, the user is capable of defining the permissible height of engravers used on punching dies, and may then compare the results obtained with such definitions. Such an approach eliminates the risk of using punches that fail to meet the applicable standards in regular production.

Report and image archives
The fact that reports and images showing the technical condition of the punches are archived means that the process of their wear may be investigated on an on-going basis. This enables the user to perform a long-term analysis of the condition of compression tools, and serves as an invaluable source of knowledge should potential defects take place.

Full-scale automation with the use of a robotic arm - optional.
The entry-level model of the measurement machine may be equipped with a robotic arm, additionally optimizing the process of inspecting compression tools, as the tool is automatically fed into the measurement chamber.
