Efficient Image Processing – Seam and Surface Inspection

The profileobserver is suitable for a variety of applications and offers a constant detection of smallest defects at high process speed due to its in-line triangulation measuring method. Due to the high resolution, large inspection fields can be inspected with a remarkable processing speed of up to 30kHz. In the field of gap measurement/seam finding, the profileobserver enables the detection of the technical zero gap.

As a combination, the system can be used simultaneously for seam detection (pre process/”joint”) as well as for seam surface inspection or surface analysis (post process/”bead”) – and all this with one and the same hardware! The seam tracking is detected during the first pass (pre process), and the surface analysis is carried out on the return path.
