Classic image processing quickly reaches its limits, especially in the area of ​​surface inspection. With the help of the Neuralzye® software from senswork, an AI inspection of transparent strip material has now been implemented, with which the detection of bubbles and inclusions can be detected.

This project is the first time senswork has implemented the new test equipment concept for highly integrated manual test stations. A high-resolution camera system measures pin positions of an MTD connector assembly, records connector coding and verifies housing dimensions within a tolerance range of 0.1 mm. A color dot spray system marks well-tested components.

Fakra connectors are used in automotive electronics for the transmission of signal data such as GSM, GPS or camera data. In order to meet the high quality requirements even in the fully automated production of high volumes, a leading supplier of these products relies on senswork‘s inspection technologies.

Membrane tubes are the core component of an innovative filter technology for wastewater treatment plants. To ensure that these tubes are flawless and that the cleaning performance of the plants runs optimally, a line scan camera system from senswork inspects the surfaces of the membrane tubes for a wide variety of production defects.

Today, die-pressed carbons and graphites are used in large quantities to manufacture a wide variety of subcomponents for the automotive industry, such as fuel and water pumps. To ensure that the products leave the production line free of defects, senswork has developed a fully automated system for the quality assurance of such components together with a mechanical engineering company from Rosenheim.

In order to check the quality of screw caps on filled soup glasses after filling, senswork now offers a 360 ° camera inspection system, which allows a view of the surface of the cap in a picture through a specially developed mirror deflection. With up to 6 glasses per second, the quality of the lid surface is ensured and checked for damage and freedom from scratches.

For a French automotive supplier, senswork developed and implemented optical control modules for the quality inspection of automotive reversing sensors. Different sensor types are processed in one machine, then packed and stacked in different trays. The modular machine consists of four assembled modules connected by a common control system. A total of seven camera systems are used for optical inspection and defect detection.

In this application, plastic injection molded parts fed by a vibratory conveyor are transferred to a rotating glass plate, where they are inspected by two camera systems. The first of the two systems checks all parts for type accuracy, while system 2 subsequently detects the smallest burrs on the diameter.

Enormous quantities of battery cases are produced every day in battery production for e-cars. Our camera system checks the battery case holder for possible damage, breaks and cases that have not been removed in order to be able to secure the subsequent fully automatic refitting.

Numerous errors can occur in the manufacture of soaps, and while the human eye can recognize that immediately, the way they look can vary widely. A multi-camera system consisting of incident light, transmitted light and 3D inspection reliably detects all defect features.

After the painting process of synthetic parts, they are subjected to a fully automatic surface inspection by a shape-from-shading system before further processing. This method allows the smallest surface defects such as paint pimples, scratches, inclusions, lint or other raised or recessed defects to be reliably detected. For this, our system uses eight lighting directions with eight partial images, which are offset by Shape from Shading to form a height map of the surface.

The cables are 10 km long and tow large ships across the ocean to discover new oil deposits. A defective cable can cause millions in damage if it causes a ship to abandon its business. senswork image processing takes care of this. Even during production, a line camera is swiveled radially around the seam, creating a development of the weld seam. In the camera image generated in this way, the smallest defects in the weld seam are visualized and recognized in good time.

100 percent inline testing of seven-segment modules in production. After the injection molding process, the test parts are checked for the smallest inclusions and inhomogeneities in a double nest in transmitted and reflected light. The senswork inspection tool compensates for nest and shape variances fully automatically and thus ensures an extremely reliable inspection.

A 360 ° panorama endoscope is used to examine the inside of an aluminum body for processing marks and surface defects such as cavities and pores. Our system checks cylindrical internal surfaces in several height sections using deep learning tools for irregularities in the surface.
