Visual inspection

Finding cost efficient quality control equipment

Visual POC is a research study aiming to find out cost efficient visual quality control equipment to ensure that faulty plastic parts can be detected in manufacturing process. The research was carried out by searching and testing different technologies. After testing different approaches including different sensors the most suitable way for visual inspection was found to be machine vision. The study continued to the phase where measurement system design was defined and geometry and different factory environment concepts were created. The visual inspection aims to decrease the quality controlling costs in factory production.
