PC7 Inspection Automat

  • Surface inspection
  • Dimension measuring
  • Single piece

Optical single-piece inspection of cut-to-length or die-cut micro tubing or other small parts made of plastics, rubber or metal.

Detectable defects and irregularities

The system detects and classifies surface defects, such as inclusions, grooves, scratches or dents, over the complete product length. It also checks the cut edges for burs or other irregularities. With six high-speed cameras of more than 2,500 pixels each, the system detects surface defects down to 30 µm.

Optional system modules

Defect Density Management (DDM)

Not every defect automatically means that a product is “out of spec”. In many cases, a certain number of smaller defects on a defined length of the product is tolerable. The DDM (Defect Density Management) module allows you to define - by simple sets of rules - defect densities and defect sizes that shall be considered as still acceptable.

Groove Modul

The optional Groove Module ensures that also longitudinal grooves resulting from an incident in the production process are reliably detected. In the worst case, such grooves may run along the complete length of the product. With the Groove Module the causes of the problem can be swiftly identified and remedied so as to bring the reject rate down again.

Edge Detection

The optional Edge Detection Module ensures reliable inspection of edges and corners. It detects any deformations or undesired burs. As faulty product will be sorted out immediately, adaptation problems are a thing of the past.
