KeMes

The precision solution for efficient angular measurement

Quality assurance that saves time

Angle monitoring in running production processes

KeMes stands for a completely new type of angle measurement and is designed for both manual as well as fully automatic quality control on press brakes. The measurement device is fastened to the upper die by means of magnets, thereby enabling measurement directly at the machine without interrupting the production process.

… easy, fast and precise

Thanks to the simple mounting, the angle measurement system from KEBA can be quickly transferred to any press brake. Complete quality control is possible with KeMes without any additional time – and with maximum accuracy and reproducibility.

Applications

In addition to use on the press brake, KeMes is also ideally suited as a hand-held measurement device and can be used both for quality control during the manufacture of sheet metal parts as well as for incoming goods inspections. A specially designed function enables continuous measurement along the entire workpiece.

Machine measurement

Automatic angle inspections directly at the machine

The KeMes angle measurement device is ideally suited for automatic measurement directly at the press brake. By means of integrated magnets, it can be easily attached to the upper tool. Without any intervention in the machine control, KeMes can be used immediately for angle inspections, as the measurement is started by the integrated sensors.

Manual measurement

Manual quality control

Not only does the KeMes laser protractor simplify angle inspection directly at the press brake but also the manual quality control of sheet metal angles. Unlike conventional hand-held measurement devices, the measurement blade does not need to be aligned to the workpiece, thereby resulting in considerable time savings. In addition, the supplied measurement aid enables speedy, precise positioning – alignment errors are excluded. Thus, the device is easy to operate, even for inexperienced users. Thanks to the ingenious measurement method as well as the one-button operation, KeMes can also be used to ascertain angles at hard to reach places.

Continuous measurement

Continuous measurement along the entire bending edge

This function can be used in both manual as well as machine mode and enables a permanent measurement process. The angle can thereby be quickly and easily checked along the entire workpiece, an advantage for longer sheet metal parts in particular.

Your advantages at a glance

Time savings

When used directly on the press brake, the KeMes angle measurement device automatically determines the angular result. Time no longer needs to be spent on manual spot checks.

Avoid reject

KeMes enables complete quality control directly in the running production process. It is possible to immediately respond to any angle deviations.

Suitable for all machines

The patented angle measurement solution works for different machine types and manufacturers and can be retrofitted to existing press brakes at any time without intervening in the machine control.

Flexible use

Whether directly on the press brake, for manual spot checks or incoming goods inspection – the digital protractor KeMes is very versatile.

Quality data recording

KeMes supports the recording of the measurement values, which can then be used to analyze the production process.

Transfer of angle values

Equipped with a Bluetooth interface, the KeMes variants A200 and A205 allow the automatic transfer and processing of angle values. However, this requires an integration of the device by the machine manufacturer.

Our solutions

We have the right solution for every requirement: The KeMes protractor is available both as a manufacturer-independent 'stand-alone' variant and as a variant that can be integrated into the machine control system
