RIB 4D: Safety first with always ready-to-use, always reliable, thoroughly tested weaponry - and the systems to ensure their readiness!

With the RIB 4D, Kappa presents a new, high-performance system for large-caliber weapon barrel inspection — for troops evaluating actual and post-firing status and calculating remaining service life, as well as for manufacturers’ quality control of newly manufactured barrels.

Phenomenal Measurement Results, In- and Outdoors: The RIB 4D is designed for every conceivable use, whether in the maintenance shop with weapons in assembled or disassembled condition, or by maintenance troops working directly on vehicles — without having to dismantle the barrel — with the highest possible demands placed upon the measurement results. An automatic feed systematically moves the measuring head through the lowered barrel. Cutting-edge technology, robust, easy to transport, fast, and user friendly: unbeatable!

 

NEW: 3D Laser Scanner and 360° Videos: Within the completely newly designed RIB 4D measuring head, the entire bandwidth of the newest image-generating technology for seamless, complete barrel inspection is used. A supersensitive laser scan generates a detail-rich point cloud. In addition, 8 CMOS sensors provide the viewer with brilliant 360° videos of the barrel’s interior surfaces. The highly precise barrel digitization offers a comprehensive data basis for secure assessment of a barrel interior’s condition.

 

Barrel digitization directly on the vehicle in the lowered barrel

RIB 4D can be used directly on the vehicle in the lowered barrel.

RIB 4D measuring head for ultra-fast gun barrel inspection

Extremely fast: fully automated measurement < 30 min / barrel, with 8 CMOS sensors for 360° videos

RIB 4D: An automatic feed systematically moves the measuring head through the lowered barrel. 120 - 155 mm calibers (other on request)

RIB 4D: An automatic feed systematically moves the measuring head through the lowered barrel (76 - 155 mm calibers (other on request)

Fastest Ever Fully-Automated Barrel Digitization (< 1/2 h)

The RIB 4D completes the entire high-resolution barrel measurement sensationally fast in under 30 minutes (example Leopard 2), making it a practical option also for maintenance troops in the field.

 

Keeping it simple: Only One Operator Required

Simple handling means that just one person can operate the entire system. Independent of the operator, the automatic system delivers incorruptible and reproducible measurement results.

 

One System for Multiple Barrel Sizes and Types

RIB 4D is made for smooth and rifled barrels. Using adapter rings, it can be easily adapted to different calibers from 76 to 155 mm.

 

Rib 4D: innovative laser-based system with additional cameras for gun barrel inspection

Interactive Software for Reliable Assessment: Comprehensive image data is documented by user-friendly software in accordance with TDv018 technical regulations. A simple, interactive surface leads the user through the precise measurement of critical areas to evaluate the barrel’s condition and determine its remaining service life. The software can be modified to varying user needs. 

Precise measurement of damaged areas: erosion, corrosion, chrome spallings, bulgings. Plus bore measurement.

Complete All-in-One Inspection System: The RIB 4D comes with a measuring head, feed unit, computing unit, display unit and transport case. 

An unrivaled level of experience: We are the pioneering supplier in the area of gun barrel inspection; we know our customers’ requirements inside and out. Rely on our state-of-the-art systems, built upon decades of experience.

Versatile use: e.g. with tank barrels, howitzers and naval guns
