Tubeshaper

Created specifically for the ROMER Absolute Arm, TubeShaper is the most advanced tube measurement software Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has ever produced. Drawing on 30 years’ experience in the tube industry, it combines the best features of its predecessors with cutting-edge technology to create software that is highly advanced yet totally intuitive, even to users with little experience of tube, pipe or bent-wire measurement.

Designed to maximise production efficiency and reduce scrap, TubeShaper features direct connections to CNC tube bending machines, automatic measurement plan creation and direct import of CAD models in a user-friendly package.

Offering a state-of-the-art user interface, TubeShaper enables you to fully harness the measurement potential of the ROMER Absolute Arm for all tube inspection applications. The calculation and application of spring-back values, bend corrections, reverse engineering and part-to-CAD tube inspection are now easier and faster than ever before, guaranteeing time and cost savings right there on the shop floor in a single and simple package.
