Controle Mesure Systeme offers instruments dedicated to the controle of wire and parts with small diameter
Controle Mesure Systemes is a French company that has been designing and manufacturing Non-Destructive Testing systems for nearly 35 years. Specialized in Eddy Current and Ultrasound, the company integrate these 2 complementary methods in combined test benches.
Wishing to bring a control solution to each need for each and every customers, Controle Mesure Systemes has designed a rotating Eddy Current head (RotoETscan TRVC) dedicated to the control of wire and parts of small diameters (range from Ø 0.8 to 10 mm).
This system, which can be easily integrated on a control line, includes a cassette adapted to the diameter of the product. Eddy Current probes installed inside the cassette rotate at high speeds around the product (up to 18 000 rpm). This model allows the detection of longitudinal defects on wires, bars or unit parts with a very high inspection speed (up to 3m/s).
For the control of wire or continuous products, Controle Mesure Systemes also designs opening Eddy Current probes that allow direct insertion into the production line without having to cut or stop it. These probes are very useful for the continuous control of butt-welded wire coils. The detected defects are punctual and transversal.
Controle Mesure Systemes is always innovating to offer its customers efficient solutions adapted to their needs.

Probus : A smart software for Non Destructive Testing
Controle Mesure Systemes has developed a software called Probus. It collects information provided by NDT equipment in order to display signals, analyzes them, makes a sorting decision and creates inspection reports. Probus is the decision-making center of the Non Destructive Testing line. It centralizes all the sensor data and is able to control the actuators of the test bench.
The main purpose of the Probus software is to ensure the traceability with the creation of either an individual product or a batch inspection report. They can list the detected defects and their locations and serve as proof of control.
Alarm thresholds can be set up for each channel. When a signal triggers the alarm, the software displays it live and mark the product as defective.
Probus not only can handle several types of signals (Ultrasonic for flaw detection or dimensional measurement, Eddy Current), but also manage the good/bad sorting of the products and control the marking system.
The supervision software can be used with many other brands’ systems such as Ultrasonic and Eddy Current rotating heads, EC coil holders, magnetization/ demagnetization units, and many more !
Probus is able to read and use any analog signal, so Controle Mesure Systemes can easily integrate it on an obsolete inspection bench and take care of the revamping of the installation.

Controle Mesure Systeme is building its new head office
After more than twenty years in its current premises, Controle Mesure Systemes started the construction of the new ultra-modern head office at the end of 2020. The new premises will be located in Burgundy (Sevrey, France).
Financed with the help of the local region, the Feder and the city, this project will help Controle Mesure Systemes strengthening teams and hiring new talents. A developer will join the adventure in order to perfect our IT team, a designer will join the mechanical engineering office, and finally a marketing center will allow the brand to increase its communication and digital strategy.
This project will considerably increase CMS’s production capacity since the workspace will double. Every project stages (design, assembly, testing) will now be able to take place in a single location, allowing benches and control lines up to 70m long.
The company also wished to emphasize its ecological commitment. A 60-meter long water storage and retention basin will help preserve the local ecosystem. In addition, an area at the rear of the building will be developed to meet environmental standards and preserve local wildlife.
Controle Mesure Systemes has invested nearly 3 millions euros in this project to keep up with its tremendous growth.
The director of the company stated: “CMS is a family business, I am delighted to see this project evolve and I cannot wait to discover all the possibilities this new space will offer us.”

Controle Mesure Systemes is proud to receive the Deutsche Bahn certification for rail control !
For several years, CMS has been working on an innovative system for rail inspection, composed of custom rotating probes. The idea is simple: two probes are placed on either side of the train. They are rotating at a very high speed right above the contact area between the wheel and the rail, to detect possible surface/fatigue defects.
For nearly 3 years, we have been working on the mechanical and technical improvement of the device. The rail surface being curved, an electronic system has been designed to compensate for the distance variation between the rail and the EC rotating probe. Controle Mesure Systemes also worked on easing up the calibration of the device so it could show the operator the defect’s depths. The robustness of the system was a key element of the development since the instrument is subject to many wear factors (dust, friction, humidity, cold) in its working environment.
When defects are identified, the control system sends the information to the supervision of the train that operates a rail grinding device. After each grinding pass, the rails are being checked again to make sure the defects have been eliminated by the grinding operation. These steps are repeated as many times as necessary.
The certification issued by Deutsche Bahn is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. It is required in several countries to have access to the rail inspection market. Controle Mesure Systemes and its partner has carried out series of tests with the organization since 2017, to successfully pass all the accreditation stages. Thanks to this hard work, CMS is able to work in a multitude of countries with an efficient and certified system.
With a 30-year expertise in Eddy Current and Ultrasonic inspections,
