(AICON 3D: Braunschweig, Germany) -- Since the summer of 2015, AICON 3D Systems has been a partner of Tube Innovation Days, a network of 11 top technology partners from the areas of tube manufacturing and tube processing. Regular in-house trade fairs offer visitors the chance to get detailed advice and to test machines.

Roll-forming, welding, pickling, straightening, testing, sawing, bending, measuring, transporting, warehouse logistics, and cooling lubricants—Tube Innovation Days are integral partners that represent the whole work system. They offer customized solutions for particular applications, made in Germany.

AICON complements the range of services for the field of measurement. Its 3D metrology systems, including TubeInspect, offer innovative and efficient solutions for high-precision quality assurance and control, production monitoring, and serial production. The increasing demand for cost-effective serial production as well as the stringent requirements for product quality are constant challenges in today’s industry.

For 20 years, AICON’s optical tube measurement systems have stood for efficient quality control of bent tubes and wires. Highly precise and fast measurement, programmable optical gauges, automated setup and correction of bending machines, reverse engineering of sample tubes, prototyping, initial sample testing, automatic 100-percent inspection—these are only some of the various application areas of TubeInspect.

The next Tube Innovation Days take place in the United States Nov. 12–13, 2015. The bending machine manufacturer WAFIOS invites customers and interested parties to the Technical Center in Mokena, Illinois. Visitors can profit from one-stop advice and will have the chance to test various technologies, from both WAFIOS and the other network partners.
