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.
Using the Gocator® 2130 3D laser profiler, KD Automation created a system that allowed their customer to monitor and manage the volume and placement of adhesive—therefore eliminating waste, increasing production yield, and gaining the application knowledge to change and adapt the company’s manufacturing processes to real-time requirements.
