Inspection of Cylinder Head Gaskets

Automated, Optical Gasket Inspection

The VINSPEC system solution for inspecting the surfaces and geometries of cylinder head gaskets uses high-definition line scan cameras to detect even the smallest of defects. A topological inspection, image filtering and a comprehensive defect classification with over 100 features are used to precisely and reliably detect defects and minimize false rejections. The automated inspection is characterized by intuitive operation. The automatic inspection programs teach-in process utilizes available CAD data. Inspection programs for new cylinder head gaskets are easy to set up on the basis of existing inspection parameters.


In addition to the clear defect detection and classification, a complex outbound inspection based on trend analyses and repeat defects enables targeted corrective actions. Process deviations can thus be quickly corrected.

Examples of Usage:

  • Surface and geometric inspections of cylinder head gaskets and transmission control plates

VINSPEC at a Glance:

  • Constant 100% quality inspections
  • Even the smallest of defects are captured
  • High inline inspection speed
  • Intuitive operation (teach-in, CAD, GUI)
  • Standardized communication with the PLC system and the MES (horizontal and vertical)
  • Suitable for retrofitting into existing production lines
  • Inspection on the basis of CAD data
  • Efficient minimization of false defects
  • Comprehensive defect classification with over 100 features, e.g. depending on the defect position, orientation, length or width etc.
  • Up to four tolerance zones along the sealing face with different, adaptable defect criteria
  • Factoring out of any deformation, translations and rotations of the object to be inspected based on fixed geometrical features
  • Statistical analyses as a basis for process optimizations
  • Documentation and archiving of inspection results in an integrated database
  • Centralized management for multiple inspection systems
  • Field proven worldwide
