Optical Sensor Inspects Bore Surfaces

Consisting of an optical sensor, computer and a slide to position the sensor, the IPS-10 internal inspection system from Hommel-Etamic is designed to be installed within a production line to inspect bores with a diameter of 14 mm to 50 mm and depths to 450 mm. Typical cycle times are only seconds per part to produce a complete optical inspection of a bore's inside surface.

Parts to be inspected must have a clean, dry surface in order to use this optical inspection method, according to the company. The system detects surface flaws such as cavities, scratches, porosity, valleys, edge flaws and unmatched surfaces automatically. The completeness and position of transverse holes and grooves is also possible in the same step.
