Surface Inspection: Introduction

  • A surface Inspection system is used to obtain information about the quality of the outer surface of a substrate in order to assure high quality in the subsequent production steps
  • The surface inspection system comprises angled lighting and smart cameras for detection of surface flaws on objects after their production in real-time processing
  • It is used after a process for quality control and inspection of surface depending on the particular task
  • Surface Inspection systems are required for film production, coating systems, the paper industry, and in the manufacture and processing of metal, hygiene non-wovens, and films
  • Surface inspection systems are also integrated with robots to enhance the speed of production, lower cost, and minimize human errors, which are essential in automotive, electronics and food processing industries

Rise in Demand for Surface Inspection Systems Globally

  • Surface Inspection systems are extensively employed for inspection of web products, coated surfaces, and complex materials such as display glass for tablets and smartphones. Inspection systems have ability to detect minute scratches, inclusions, or holes at high throughput speeds.
  • Demand for surface Inspection systems is considerably high in the electronics and semiconductor industry, where the adoption of high-level integration has increased rapidly.
  • The surface inspection system offers an automated approach for inspection of foreign bodies, surface defects, cracks, fibers, and missing materials across all industries
