Automated Quality Inspection with 3D Scanner for Complex Components

The VINSPEC 3D INLINE inspection system scans castings that are large and complex, such as crankcases. The system is integrated in the production line with minimum cycle time and high throughput.

The 3D scanner inspects components for surface defects and geometric deviations simultaneously and from all sides, irrespective of the component material. For example, crankcases are inspected for the integrity of external geometries, existence of structural openings, and damage and defects (for example, dents).

For this purpose, the sides of the component are scanned simultaneously and each is captured as a 3D point cloud. The point cloud is compared to the 3D model stored for each side and deviations are identified. Various tolerances for width, length, depth, and volume can be defined.

This robust inspection method is insusceptible to contamination and extremely stable. The system serves not only as a stationary scanning solution with 3D sensor system and moving part. The 3D scanner can also be connected to a robot.

Process Optimization for Industry 4.0

All inspection results are transferred to an integrated database for documentation, archiving, and evaluation purposes. This makes it possible to detect defects throughout the entire process and manually correct them at the reworking station. Even data from external processes, such as X-ray inspections, can be captured and displayed.

A combined evaluation of all component-related data supports more effective processes, reducing costs and optimizing product quality, keeping you one step ahead in the era of digitization.
