Optical Inline Q-check
Quality check during the forming process
The SmartCam was mainly developed for detecting respectively measuring special quality characteristics already during the material processing in the forming press. Thanks to the robust and thin design as well as the integrated fully configurable lighting and the TOF-autofocus the camera can take images from defined regions inline. Various processor variants enable also more complex calculations directly in the line. Through a big variety of different
interfaces (Ethernet, ioLink, 5G, WLAN …) the results can be passed to the corresponding database.
All these functions are combined through evoFLOW, a graphical fully web based tool for sequence definition. Finally it is also possible for an operator not specialised to image processing or programming to create and run new customised flows.
