Inspection of Cylinder Bores

Automated Cylinder Bore Surface Inspection
Using a Robot Inspection Cell

The robot cells equipped with VINSPEC surface inspection enable fully automated inspections of the surfaces and contours of complex components, even in small production batches. An internal inspection sensor captures high-resolution images of even the smallest defects on areas which are impossible or difficult to see, e.g. internal bore surfaces. In addition to the objective defect classification, optimum defect detection on cylinder bores is also achieved.

VITRONIC robot inspection cell for internal bore surface inspection


The robot-aided surface inspection offers excellent flexibility thanks to its quick and easy adaptation. New or modified parts can be adapted to by simply adjusting the inspection system software and reprogramming the robot. This enables fully automated and efficient inspections of even the smallest production series.

The inspection system works inline at production speed and can be retrofitted into existing production lines. VITRONIC offers the flexible turnkey solution comprising mechanical components, robot, conveyor system, PLC, lighting and computing unit from a single source.

Examples of Usage of the Robot Inspection Cell:

  • Internal inspections of engine blocks and cylinder heads
  • Internal valve housing inspections

VINSPEC at a Glance:

  • Automatic 100% surface and geometric inspections, particularly of cylinder bores
  • High inline inspection speed
  • Intuitive operation (teach-in, CAD, GUI)
  • Documentation and archiving of inspection results in an integrated database
  • Statistical analyses as a basis for process optimizations
  • Standardized communication with the PLC system and the MES (horizontal and vertical)
  • Flexible expansion in the case of new parts and inspection surfaces

Whatever surface you want to inspect: VITRONIC is your ideal partner for all challenging machine vision activities – worldwide.
