Highlights of PC7 Inspection Automat
PIXARGUS Multi-Camera Sensor Technology
Pixargus high-capacity multi-camera sensors guarantee 100-percent quality control of e.g. simple products such as micro tubes as well as highly demanding precision tubings of up to 10 mm in diameter, which have to comply with extremely exacting surface and edge quality specifications. Scalable system generation with modularly adjustable multi-zone scanning and LED-based lighting elements developed by PIXARGUS.
Innovative inspection in Free Fall mode
ProfilControl 7 FFI guarantees 100 percent/360° inspection! Single pieces, e.g. micro tubings, are detected while in free fall. The test pieces, fed one after the other into the sensor head, drop past the LED lighting elements and the high-resolution cameras. They are scanned as they are falling, i.e. in real time. The detection process takes place so fast that any faulty pieces are sorted out by a special device just a few centimeters below the measuring head. The optional edge detection feature, which checks both edges of the cut pieces, completes the concept of total quality control, as it guarantees 100 percent inspection of each individual piece.
Intelligent operator guidance via a 21.5” multitouch screen and a clearly structured cockpit displaying all camera images and parameter settings make for easy and swift operation. Comfortable assistance systems, such as the automatic and simplified lighting control and focusing feature, reduce the set-up effort and eliminate operating errors.
“Big Data” becomes “Quality@ Industry 4.0”
ProfilControl 7 is Industry 4.0 ready, as it can be intelligently networked via LAN or other interfaces with additional sensors, measuring systems, PDA and ERP systems, and a PLC environment. It interlinks the quality data measured by the sensors and combines them into an integrated data map. Thus, the user can analyze the results within a coherent context and condense “big data” to what is really needed.
Compact. Robust. Made in Germany.
The housing and wiring of the system have been designed specifically for service under most severe conditions. Thus they easily cope even with high mechanical stress. Tried and tested materials, ergonomic design and precision engineering guarantee longevity and provide security of investment.
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.
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.
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.
