Increased efficiency is achieved due to the low manual handling.
Multi-level image evaluation and coding
are small shrinkage cavities that usually occur when hot steel cools down and solidifies. The fewer inherent shrinkage cavities, the better the quality of the cast product. Cast steel components have to meet the highest requirements as to quality and longevity. Blowholes can pose a serious threat to a component’s functionality; therefore affected parts must be sorted out during final inspection.
An Austrian producer of cast aluminium components was confronted with the above mentioned problem. Thanks to the successful cooperation with both AUTFORCE Vision Systems GmbH and AUTFORCE Automations GmbH it was possible to solve this problem to the customer’s ultimate satisfaction by deploying industrial cameras for multi-level image evaluation and codification.
The advantages of our modular testing stations have become especially noticeable in this project. In the spirit of sustainability, two work steps are carried out in just one CUBE. This not only saves material and money, but also minimizes the space required for the work processes.
