Camera-based, automatic surface inspections for accurate quality control during production

The machine vision system VINSPEC for automated surface inspection captures material and production-induced defects on flat and structured parts, inner surfaces and internal bore surfaces. It reliably detects even the smallest surface defects (incl. scratches, pores, shrinkage cavities and impact marks). The surface inspection often also goes hand in hand with geometric and dimensional accuracy inspections. The optical inspection of the often highly complex parts is conducted thoroughly, reliably and in line at production speed.

In addition to the automated quality inspection, process deviations are also detected at an early stage and can be corrected. This enables components that are critical for safety and functionality to be produced with the utmost reliability and consistently high quality.
