Fastener Inspection System

The Orbitform Group’s fastener inspection system (FIS) can identify cracks, defects and mis-forms via pattern recognition.

The Orbitform Group’s fastener inspection system (FIS) can identify cracks, defects and mis-forms via pattern recognition. It also can indicate if improper force of torque has been applied to rivets or other formed fasteners.

Ensuring rivet and fastener quality is one of the most critical factors in producing high quality, consistent fastening and assembly joints. By incorporating CURE technology, FIS provides an effective way to implement solutions, providing critical information to assembly engineers and business/plant managers.

The FIS provides real-time process monitoring and control to prevent face diameters and appearance from reaching unacceptable ranges. Simple to set up and use, the system is trained on the correct data signature. The signature is then combined with the visual inspection data from an industry standard vision system using custom crack detection image processing algorithms. The fusion of these two data streams allows the system to determine a rivet or fasteners condition both structurally and cosmetically.
