Inspection of Painted Surfaces

The visual inspection of metallic and reflective surfaces can be very challenging in practice. However, by optimally coordinating software and hardware, especially in lighting, even the smallest defects can be reliably detected.

Automation solution:

  • Identification of paint defects on painted surfaces
  • Classification of defects (e.g. scratches, dust inclusions, etc.)
  • Output of the exact defect positions on the object (CAD coordinates)
  • Display and documentation of the results

Application area:
Automotive industry, paint shop

Surface Geometry Inspection

In the body shop, process-related deformations of the car body can occur in the form of dents, indentation points, etc. Due to the reflective surface, manual inspection is often a challenging task.

Automation solution:

  • Inspection of the surface for geometric deformations
  • Display of defect positions
  • Display and documentation of results

Application area:
Automotive industry, body shop

Weld Seam Inspection

Visual inspection of welds, by the human eye only, is often inconsistent and subjective. An autonomous inspection can optimize this process. Since several weld seams at different positions can be inspected at the same time, the time spent on this process step can be significantly reduced.

Automation solution:

  • Detection of surface and form defects on weld seams
  • Inspection for predefined characteristics
  • Optical measurement
  • Autonomous Data acquisition and generation of reports

Application area:
Automotive industry, body shop

Presence control

The inspection and presence check of parts can be automated with the AI Scanner. In this way, it is possible to ensure that no parts have been forgotten after manual assembly and that they have been attached without errors.

Automation solution:

  • Checking presence of parts
  • Checking for freedom from defects

Application area:
Automotive industry, assembly

Gap Inspection

A correctly running gap and flush dimension is an elementary quality feature in the automotive industry. In order to keep manual rework to a minimum, deviations must be detected at an early stage. With the help of IUNA AI models, the relevant borders can be identified and checked in the image.

Automation solution:

  • Contact-free 2D gap dimension measurement
  • Display and documentation of the results

Application Area:
Automotive industry, assembly

Flushness Inspection

A correctly running gap and flush dimension is an elementary quality feature in the automotive industry. In order to keep manual reworking to a minimum, deviations must be detected at an early stage. In order to be able to evaluate the flushness optically, we make use of 3D cameras.

Automation solution:

  • Non-contact 3D flush measurement
  • Display and documentation of the results

Application area:
Automotive industry, assembly

Label Inspection and OCR-Scan

During the production of labels printing errors can occur. These can be checked for correctness on different surfaces using 2D image data analysis. 

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scanning can be used to efficiently read out codes and autonomously enter those into databases.

Automation solution:

  • Checking correctness of labels
  • Reading out barcodes and text using OCR technology

Field of application:
Logistics, shipping

Circuit Board Inspection

Due to high cycle times, the final visual inspection of circuit boards and PCBs can easily become a bottleneck in the production process. Autonomous inspection can ensure a precise and time-efficient quality assurance.

Automation solution:

  • Inspection for completeness and deviations
  • Feature inspection of controllers, solder joints etc.
  • Output of defect position

Field of application:
Circuit board industry, final inspection

Circuit boards testing

3D-Print Surveillance

The availability of individual spare parts in production is often time-critical and can be covered by using 3D printers. If errors in the printing process remain undetected for too long, time and materials are lost. This can be prevented by autonomous monitoring using cameras. 

Automation solution:

  • Monitoring of printing process
  • Detection of “spaghetti monsters”
  • Automated alerting of users in the event of errors (via e-mail or SMS)
3D Druck Überwachung

Counting of Objects

Across industries, counting objects and products is a reocurring task in the production process. This task can be automated using AI models based on image data alone.

Automation solution:

  • Output of count per time unit
  • Display of deviations of target/actual number
  • Tracking in a database
Counting of parts
