The AGU is Autonetics’ flagship product – the world’s first and only production ready, in-process, high-speed, non-contact thread inspection system.
Pipe mills across the world use Autonetics technology every day. United States Steel is one such company. At their Lone Star Tubular Operations facility, two AGU’s are installed and have scanned over 900,000 connections with 99.5% uptime.
These systems operate 24/7 measuring 100% of API and semi-premium callouts.
With a 10% Gage R&R on a +/- 0.001″ MRP tolerance in factory production conditions, USS has completely replaced their human inspectors with AGU’s.
