Systems »Production Control«

The Production Control business unit's product portfolio comprises a large number of optical methods and systems for the measurement and analysis of surfaces, coatings and 3D structures. The systems measure fast and very precisely - even under the challenging environmental conditions of industrial production and with a view to 100 percent quality control. We adapt our systems individually to the respective measuring task for use at the customer's site and thus continuously develop the technologies deployed.

Systems for surface analysis

 

F-Camera

Measuring surface cleanliness – inspecting coatings

The inspection system detects impurities or defects on surfaces directly in the production line.

 

F-Scanner

Imaging inspection of cleanliness and coating

The imaging fluorescence laser scanners inspect surfaces directly in production or in the laboratory.

 

Inspect-360° F

100 percent coating and cleanliness inspection in free fall

The camera system captures object surfaces from different directions − in a single recording process.

 

F-Fiber

Monitoring closed production facilities

The fiber-based sensor monitors cleaning-in-place (CIP) processes in food production.

 

Inline particle detector

Detecting particulate contamination

The particle detector identifies even the smallest particles on components and enables cleanliness to be monitored directly in the production line for the first time.

 

ANALIZEsingle / ANALIZEmulti

The measuring systems record the coating thickness and element composition on the component surface within milliseconds.

 

Film-Inspect

100 percent inspection of ultra-thin coatings

Ultra-thin coatings measured quickly, precisely and non-destructively – even on three-dimensionally shaped surfaces.

 

Stent Camera

Automatic inline stent inspection

The system enables one hundred percent inspection of shape, defects and coating quality.

 

Single molecule detection

Antenna assays: an alternative to PCR

Antenna-amplified single molecules can be identified with comparatively simple and inexpensive methods.

Systems for surface inspection

 

Inspect-360° MP

100 % component inspection without additional handling

The free-fall system fully inspects components with even complex geometries for defects in the outer contour and texture.

 

Inspect-360° HR

100 % component inspection without additional handling

The free-fall system detects defects in dimensional accuracy and texture with a minimum size of 30 µm on any small components.

 

Inspect-180°

Inline quality control of large components on the conveyor belt

The system inspects defects in the outer contour and texture of components with sub-millimeter precision without specific component handling.

 

WIRE-HR

Automatic inspection of wire production

The imaging inspection system detects micro-defects already during production.

 

TexCam

Automated texture analysis

The inspection system captures surfaces with extremely high resolution at a comparatively large measuring field.

 

F-Camera

High-resolution measurement of surface defects

The imaging inspection system detects impurities or defects on surfaces in the production line.

Systems for geometry measurement

 

HoloTop

100 percent quality control

HoloTop measures the topography of surfaces so quickly and reliably that it can be used in inline quality control.

 

HoloTop NX

Measurement in the machine tool

The optical sensor enables micrometer-accurate quality control of precision components directly on multi-axis systems.

 

HoloGear

Optical gear measurement

The system captures gear flanks fast and with great precision, identifying geometrical deviations within seconds.

Systems for component identification

 

Track & Trace
Fingerprint Inline

Component identification in the production line

The permanently installed system registers and identifies components for marker-free tracing.

 

Track & Trace
Fingerprint Flex

Component identification on the production site

Cordless system for robust component detection on the production site

 

Track & Trace
Fingerprint App

Component identification via smartphone app

For fast, easy identification – no matter where and without additional sensors

 

Track & Trace
Fingerprint Test

Successful application in the production line

The test stand enables precise planning of the technology for later use in the production line.

Systems for deformation measurement

RODiS 2D system

Optical strain measurement and control in real time

The optical sensor RODiS 2D measures strain and displacement on the surface of metallic components in real time – combining the advantages of mechanical and optical extensometers.

 

ESPI system

Quality control based on high-precision surface measurement

The system developed by Fraunhofer IPM enables spatially and temporally resolved measurements of even minimal deformations.

Systems for materials testing

 

ANALIZEsingle / ANALIZEmulti

The optical analysis techniques record layer thickness and element composition on the component surface within milliseconds per measuring point.

 

Film-Inspect

100 percent inspection of ultra-thin coatings

Ultra-thin coatings measured quickly, precisely and non-destructively – even on three-dimensionally shaped surfaces.

 

Optically pumped magnetometers (OPM)

Using highly sensitive quantum magnetometers, defects in metallic components, for example, can be detected at a very early stage.
