Mectron’s Qualifier (Q-5000) inspection system uses its radial fire array for dimensional inspection of a variety of parts. The lasers can hold tolerances of ± 5 microns and hit 16 points of inspection for each part. Additionally, the unit has the capability to do metallurgical inspection using eddy current. The company has machines that inspect bearings, deep draw components, fasteners, power machined parts and more.

The company’s inspection systems are designed for speed and accuracy. The surface qualifier (SQ-7500) uses statistical learning to catch surface defects while rotating the part to achieve 360 degrees of inspection. The light tunnel illuminates defects as a camera takes more than 200 pictures a second.
