Some of the surface defects could include wrinkles, elevations / bulges, depressions / dents or folds.
The LMI G2 Sensors can be used on critical parts of the tool (or panel) to check whether it is profile is within tolerance or needs replacing.
While the LMI G3 Snapshot Sensor can be used to check areas of the panel for surface variations.
As with the surface defects, material variation and tool wear can be the cause of defects in the overall form of the panel (deviating from the desired geometry). Some of these defects can include out-of tolerance dimensions on apertures / holes / overall form or cracks / splits in the panel.
Once it has been formed, the panel can be presented to a Teledyne Dalsa GEVA system connected to multiple cameras that can inspect multiple specific regions of the part all at once.
There are numerous ways in which the paint finish on automotive panels can be inspected. Whether it's projecting patterns / light onto the surface to detect fine texture variations such as orange peel or looking bigger defects like colour mismatches or scratches, we have worked with numerous companies to help develop solutions that can detect a wide variety of paint defects.
