iiM AG - the name stands for innovative and high quality products in the field of optical metrology as well as LED lighting systems for Machine Vision.
For more than 20 years our two business units have developed and produced for various industries at our sites in Suhl, Nuremberg and Weißensberg.
In order to guarantee a high standard of our processes as well as continuous improvement, we annually undergo an inspection of our Quality Management System according to ISO 9001:2008 and are certified by DEKRA Certification GmbH.
The business unit „Cable Measurement Engineering“ under the brand VisioCablePro® develops and produces measuring devices for the wire and cable industry. In particular, cable measuring devices for measuring geometries on cable insulation and jackets. The product portfolio is supplemented by innovative solutions for cable sample preparation as well as performing various material tests according to standards, e.g. the Hot Set Test.
iiM AG will present its three star products: the VCPX5 measuring device, the ORC65 sample cutter and the new Cable-O-Ring cutter ORC80.
The VCPX5 is characterized by the very high measurement resolution of up to 2 μm, its easy operation and quick measurement procedure. The preset optical focus and illumination reduce the operator influence and therefore simplify the operation substantially. This measuring device was especially designed for use in laboratories and in production as a quick-test station. The suitable measuring software FMC-3 is included in the complete VCPX5 package.
The cutting device ORC65 enables quickly cut, parallel and thin samples with an outer diameter up to 65 mm. With the ORC80 it is possible to cut cable samples from hard materials (PE, XLPE) with an outer diameter up to 80mm. The ORC80 provides the option to cut sector cables precisely and smoothly. These cable samples are optimally prepared for measurements in off-line cable measuring devices, such as the VCPX5.
VCPX5 automatic cable measuring device perfectly fits into the VisioCablePro® portfolio. With a complete measuring range from 0 – 130 mm, a resolution of up to 2 μm as well as a very easy operation without any necessary lens or illumination settings, the device meets the requirements of cable manufacturers from all around the world. Due to the excellent accuracy and repeatability, easy operation as well as the reasonable price, cable manufacturers are able to reduce costs immediately.
The Cable O-Ring Cutter ORC80 was designed to combine the features of both the ORC65 and ORC150 – a compact cutting device for hard materials, e.g. PE and XLPE, with an outer diameter from 15 – 80 mm. The ORC80 is also the first device of the ORC series, which can cut parallel and smooth sector cable samples. These cut samples are according to the guidelines of IEC 60811-201 points 8.1.3 and 8.2.3 and are therefore optimal for quality measurements with offline cable measuring devices.
With the Cable O-Ring Cutter 65 it is really easy and quick to cut sample slices (cable sheath cutter) with an outer diameter from 1 to 65 millimeters (<2.56"). The samples are optimally prepared for measurements in off-line cable measuring devices.

With its very simple user interface and many possible individual uses, the operating software VCPEasy from VisioCablePro® is a winner. It offers cable manufacturers an optimum solution for ensuring cable quality and saving on valuable raw materials.

iiM AG has extended his well proven product family VisioCablePro® by a new measuring device, marketed under the name VCPEx+, which was specifically developed for the measurement of dies, nozzles and counterpieces. Extrusion tools can be inspected for wear with high precision. The measurement results can either directly be printed out as report or exported for archiving and further processing.
By combining a tactile scan of the outer contour with a camera-based circular measurement of the inner contour, the development team succeeded to extend the range of results in comparison to the previous generation.
The new technology includes additional roundness and concentricity measurements to the maximum, minimum and average inner diameter of the tool. These are important and necessary properties to make an adequate statement on the extrusion tools wear and tear condition. The main advantage of these combined features is that before the extrusion process begins, the quality is checked and a lower deviation of the wall thickness can be prevented.
The compact All-In-One device not only impresses with its modern design, but also with ingenious technique and high-level usability. The test specimen clamps centrally in a quick-clamping chuck and the outer contour is touched with a tactile probe. The measurement starts directly from the software by pressing one button.
Especially in the field of tool storing and providing, the VCPEx+ shows its strength. This guarantees that only independently tested and approved tools are used in production. The archiving and traceability of results enables a convenient life cycle presentation of your tools.
