Surface Inspection System

Surface Inspection System

Surcon 2D surface inspection systems inspect and visualise even the smallest defects and anomalies as online inspection systems. They impress with a synergy of decades of expertise in the development of precision measuring systems, combined with high-end technical surface inspection.

Surface inspection of even the smallest defects is thus possible under even the most difficult conditions such as confined spaces, acidic vapours or oils.

In addition, a powerful, intuitive HMI ensures that the most relevant measurement results are always available.

100% online inspection using fast line scan camera
and high-power LED

automated defect detection and classification

instant detection of periodic defects that indicate roll damages
