Plastic Distance

High tech with high speed: non-contact measurement allows quick piece for piece inspection of type and degree from a safe distance of Karlsruhe, 09 January 2012. Some things are by far the best to check. Touch-sensitive products on dimension and form to check are the non-contact measurement proves superior to the conventional direct access test. The inspection from a distance, developed by the Karlsruhe optimum GmbH has two advantages. First, Speed. Second, Security.

His non-contact measurement by optical systems can approve products piece for piece without stepping in – time-wasting – contact with them. So the crafty Klaus not with samples have to settle. He undergoes the entire batch, or all parts of a product quantity of control. The objects are optically recorded on the image processing and examines the features stored in the database size and number – without interruption. Because: A mechanical contact is omitted.

So is the throughput at higher than at a tactile inspection test pieces. This high-speed measurement supports the production of very small objects or very fast production lines. In the opto-electronic check is always based on same criteria. He operates from a distance: the second benefit security. The crafty Klaus is not only smart, but also careful. The non-contact measurement reduces damage that can be caused by the test itself. The detection from the distance, that the inspection is not ad absurdum will prevent: It prevents that touch-sensitive test pieces in the contact with the messin instrument damage due to scratches or pressure. The cunning Klaus is also to consider, if it is dangerous, too close to a subject such as semiconductor. The crafty Klaus in the suit: The camera meters from a safe distance: length and width, shape, dimension and number are matched in seconds frequency with the Soll-Werten stored in the database. Thus, deviations from the nominal dimension can be determine precisely the micrometer. Since plastic replaced more and more other materials such as metal in the manufacture of components or components, plastics production benefits from the dimensional inspection with high speed. Because: Plastic workpieces require greater tolerances than those made of metal. Thus the dimensional check is important. On the one hand, it reduces the unnecessarily high accuracy, that are not required, but cost production time without increasing productivity. By optimum manages non-contact measurement, however, to optimize the productivity. Since the control technology of optimum in the workflow is integrated, it operates in-line in the production line without irritating or even to stop. On the other hand, it marked the exact tolerances to insure the quality. Manufacturing defects by not dimensionally accurate parts immediately tell customers: lack precision.
