Surface Inspection

Industry 4.0 and Optical Surface Inspection for the Automotive Industry

VITRONIC's optical surface machine vision system, VINSPEC, captures material- and production-induced defects in automobile parts, for example, in cylinder bores, on parts with complex geometries such as crankcases and cylinder heads, on flat components such as cylinder head gaskets, and also on printed electronics.

Even the smallest surface defects are detected, fully automated and inline at production speed. Process deviations are detected at an early stage and can be corrected. Manufacturing defects, such as pores and damage, are captured by the 100% inspection. NOK parts are sorted out or sent for post-processing, enabling components that are critical for safety and functionality to be produced with reliability and of consistent high quality.

All this from a single source and customized to meet your needs. VITRONIC offers VINSPEC as both a turnkey solution with robot inspection cell or also as a modular solution.

Optimizing Processes for Industry 4.0

VINSPEC captures, visualizes, archives, and analyzes all inspection results. Even data from external processes can be evaluated along with system results. The findings help optimize processes, improve product quality, and reduce costs—inspection that leads to increased efficiency.

VINSPEC at a Glance:

  • Automated inline quality inspection of material- and production-induced defects
  • Inspection of flat and curved parts, inner surfaces, and internal bore surfaces
  • Long-term increased efficiency
  • Industry 4.0 compatible thanks to data capture and analysis, and long-term archiving with integrated database
  • Standardized communication with the PLC system and an MES (horizontal and vertical)
  • Intuitive operation
  • Also available as end-to-end solution from a single source
  • Field proven worldwide

We're Getting You Ready for Industry 4.0

Now is the time to gain the competitive advantage. The capture and analysis of data from 100% inspection contribute significantly to process optimization and automation in the age of Industry 4.0.
