Aluminium Norf (Alunorf) GmbH is the largest aluminium rolling and remelt plant in the world, setting new standards for the processing of aluminium to sheet and plate for a wide range of applications. In this application, Gocator 2100 series sensors were installed for inline geometry and topography measurement of raw aluminium ingots (8.6 m x 2.2 m x 0.6 m).
Gocator® smart 3D laser profilers are used during various stages of EV battery manufacturing in order to ensure component and assembly tolerances are met, and that maximum cycle life and safety are achieved.
Gas cylinders are required by law to undergo robust quality inspection before release to the market. Each cylinder contains important product and traceability information engraved on its shoulder. This information needs to be read, interpreted, and digitally stored in combination with all the other data collected during the inspection process.
Line confocal imaging is a powerful method for automated medical seal verification. This technology develops high resolution 3D and 2D scan data of the internal structure of the blister pack layers and pouches commonly used in medical packaging. With multi-layer data acquired from inline scans of the sealing regions, defect detection software can isolate contamination and air gaps, flag incomplete sealing, and detect defects such as wrinkles and burn marks.
FocalSpec® sensors offer a unique solution for inline roughness characterization of moving surfaces that allows manufacturers to achieve 100% inline quality control with laboratory accuracy. These sensors are easy to integrate into existing manufacturing lines, and deliver continuous non-contact, ultra-fast scanning and analysis of surface microtopography with real-time reporting for a range of automated production processes.
