Surface Inspection System

Surface Inspection System

Certain defects change their appearance when viewed from different angles. The use of an additional dark field configuration takes advantage of this fact and results in even more precise defect detection.

Parallel image acquisition ensures that no defect will be missed.

The modular design of all IMS surcon 2D surface inspection systems allows the uncomplicated retrofitting of an additional dark field module.

An additional high-resolution dark field module to highlight each defect is particularly recommended for the demanding surfaces in aluminium rolling mills.

100% online inspection with fast line scan cameras and high-performance LEDs

advanced automatic defect detection at different illumination angles

immediate detection of periodic defects indicating roll damage using all image channels
