Welaptega’s CMS is an optical caliper imaging technology for measuring mooring chain dimensions and viewing material condition of links. The tool is positioned on a link to capture video data which provides a record of the inspection. This data is processed to produce measurements of intergrip diamters and link length.

The CMS utilizes synchronous digital images of chains from several cameras. The images are calibrated to generate accurate measurements of chain dimensions.

Measuring chain dimensions is critical to confirm that chain corrosion and wear rates are as designed for and chains maintain minimum strength requirements throughout their lifetime.
