Surface Inspection Systems | Smarter than a camera in 2021

If you are looking for reliable inspection systems, we have good news for you. Forget machine vision products, we now have a scanner that will provide very good defect detection or any issue that can arrise on production lines. Surface defects can be either visually problematic, or even worse a sign of structural damage. 

Our scanning and image processing system will allow for much easier vision inspections. Image acquisition is automatic, which allows for surface defects inspection on the fly. This is a visual inspection system that works like a classic flatbed scanner, making quality management much easier for even untrained operators.

How the vision inspections work

This device works more or less like your standard flatbed scanner. Practically a perfectly perpendicular scanning head moves from one edge to another, capturing every image line. The system automatically stiches every line to create the perfect image acquisition you would expect. We still think this is an automatic surface inspection system, as it allows for the capture of an entire image, without the need to modify advanced settings. 

The automated optical system for surface scanning is great when you don’t want to make the inspection too complex. We love that the optical system allows for automatic focus and light uniformity. That makes the entire process is simple and very quick. Forget about long trainings and overly qualified personnel. This can be used quickly by just about anyone. 

The quality of the image sensors is second to none. While the device uses a linear optical camera, the advanced lightning module delivers perfectly even lighting across the entire width of the scan. It does wonders in the wood and plastics industry, especially when you have really large objects. We have also started seeing people working in the steel industry doing image acquisition on these detection systems Just imagine the time you are saving on quality control and production in general. 

Unlike your standard vision systems, this is not designed for automated surface inspection. This scanner works like a charm in aiding work where a lot of manual labor is required. It does not need a profiling sensor which needs constant calibration or adjustment. It just works from the moment you lay down an item. 

Industry based applications for a surface inspection camera

The surface inspection systems can be applied in different industries. While in the past line camera systems were used for surface defect detection, now we have alternatives. The systems for scanning surfaces like the Versascan, allow the operator to seat the object or the surface directly on the machine for scanning. This means huge versatility, especially in environments where static inspection and surface defect detection is required.

We have seen users operate the machine in the following industries:

  • Light steel and metal surface inspection.
  • Wood, fabric, Wallpaper and even other textiles such as carpets or different artwork based on fiber.
  • Rubber industry, such as seals, Tires and other automotive or industry applications that work with rubber or elastomer.
  • High end artwork, paintings and other surface based works of art.
  • Medical industry such as inspecting packaging, especially for the automated check of Braille inscriptions on medicine.
  • Botanical and geological education and research.
  • High end circuit board inspection and electrical applications.
  • Printing industry, including inspection of coins and printing paper with security elements.
