Vitronic Vinspec image processing systems automate surface inspection
Vitronic will present turnkey inspection systems for the automated inspection of surfaces at EuroBLECH 2012 from October 23-27, Germany. Vinspec systems ensure reliable quality inspections and at the same time reduce costs significantly.
Vitronic Vinspec machine vision solutions detect surface flaws such as scratches, notches, dents, bubbles, pores, cavities, spots, and changes in the transparency, as well as edge defects such as cracks, burrs, bevel, rounding, and leveling errors. The 2D and 3D camera-based systems are generally installed inline and inspect the surfaces at production speed. In the process, parts with any shape, areas, and contours are recorded reliably – even when the part is not positioned precisely. Defective parts can be detected automatically and discharged in timely manner. The inspection software simply learns on the basis of relevant defect patterns and CAD files. The inspection data is documented as proof for customers and for traceability and it can be used to make targeted process optimizations. Vitronic Vinspec inspection systems are used by well-known automobile manufacturers and suppliers – among other things for the automatic inspection of critical components such as cylinder heads, cylinder head seals, piston rods, and oil filter housings.
