Profile360 G4

Profile360 Profile360 is an in-line, real-time, non-contact measurement system for continuously monitoring key profile dimensions in complex shapes such as rubber, ceramic, plastic, and wood-plastic composite extrusions, roll-formed metal profiles, and profiled wire. Profile360 employs CrossCheck Line Laser Sensors to digitize the profile, compare it to a CAD template, and continuously monitor key dimensions. Dimension changes often indicate a change in material, equipment, or process, resulting in poor quality or high scrap or reclaim cost. Learn how the Profile360 from Starrett-Bytewise:
  • Improves quality and production yields
  • Displays immediately results of all line adjustments
  • Provides 100% inspection
  • Decreases start-up time
  • Reduces cost of scrap and rework


Our Generation 4 of Profile360 includes many new features that bring even more value to the world's premier inline laser measurement system. Some of the highlights include:

  • 25% Accuracy Improvement - Now 0.045% of the field-of-view.
  • Data Collection and SPC Module - See full-screen trend charts and alarm charts, export measurements to a database, and view SPC charts and statistics in real-time, among many other possibilities.
  • Alarm Notification Module - Receive instant email notification when an alarm condition is met.
  • Advanced Reporting Module - Now you can select the start and end times for the report. The software will execute reports based on events, save as PDF, and generate automatic emails to appropriate personnel. SPC Control Charts may also be included on the final run report.
  • Ethernet Cameras – Cameras now communicate over Ethernet, resulting in improved spare parts cost and availability.
  • Quick-Release Guide Rollers - Now you can detach the guide rollers by hand without removing screws so the system can be pulled off-line quickly.
  • Easy Cleaning – The sensors have been made more accessible so they are easier to reach for periodic cleaning.
  • LED Light Stack – LEDs use less power than the old incandescent bulbs and have very long life cycles.
  • Quick-Release Cable Connectors – All cables plug into the base. This allows for easy removal of the measurement frame for maintenance.

Profile360 for the Pipe Industry

Profile360-600Profile360 is an in-line, real-time measurement system for continuously monitoring OD, OOR, and circumference for round pipe and profiles. Profile360 can be installed in two locations, in-line before cutting, and in final inspection.

When installed in final inspection the system measures the OD, OOR, and circumference of the pipe ends and body to assure compliance with API and other standards. This includes a pipe length measurement system that measures the pipe length, and also associates each measurement to its position along the length of the pipe.

When installed prior to cutting, the system measures OD, OOR, and circumference continuously. These measurements can be used to fine-tune the tooling during a set up change, and then alarm whenever the values approach the allowable limits so that an operator can intervene before a quality fault occurs.

Profile360 is available in diameters up to 1600mm.
