Surface inspection in industrially produced “high-quality” products plays an increasing role in the industry.
The outer appearance of products is an important purchasing criterion for the customer. If a product has any surface defects, such as pits, dents, blisters, paint defects, etc., the customers’ purchasing interest drops due to the bad processing quality.
In order to efficiently produce a product at consistent quality, surface inspections must be performed at high-contrast lighting during early stages of the production process already, since it is often the case that few or no surfacve defects can be perceived under low-contrast lighting, which would cause them to enter the further production processes.
The surface control optics developed by us permit improved control of the surfaces. A special lighting simplifies the conditions for visual surface inspection and permits initiation of process corrections in a timely and effective manner.
Depending on the type of surface and type of defect there are different surface control optics:
