Vitronic has announced that it will demonstrate VIROwsi and VINSPEC, the latest machine vision products, in hall 13 at EuroBLEC 2010 the world’s biggest trade fair for sheet metal operations which will be held in Hanover, Germany from October 26 to 30.
It was reported that the participants of the show can experience the seamless inspection operations of VIROwsi that features a slim layout, facilitating easy incorporation into production cycles.
VIROwsi utilizes a semiconductor laser enclosed in a small sensor on an automated arm for envisaging a line along the welded layer. The sensor casing also includes an expeditious camera for portraying the line as an elevation outline. VIROwsi then develops a three dimensional image of the complete layer of the seam by using the sensor’s relative movement with the module. It identifies the joint imperfections like cavities, eruptions, holes, hairline fissures, shape defects on the borders etc with 100% precision and offers information regarding enhancements in quality if necessary. It can even examine seams which are welded horizontally as well as those seams joining reflective objects. VIROwsi eliminates the requirement of examining welded joints by manual methods which involve cost, time and labour overheads.
VINSPEC, the surface assessment system includes matrix and line-scan camera systems for examining components as they move along power-driven conveyors. At EuroBLECH, VINSPEC will identify surface imperfections in objects like cylinder heads and head gaskets which are utilized in car engines and will develop statistical estimations, enabling the company to improvise their production methods.
