It can be very difficult to detect very small local deviations on tested components. It is common practice, for example, to paint vehicle body parts in glossy black and inspect under special lighting, such as a light pipe, in order to get a visual impression of a defect's geometric form. This process cannot be used for all surfaces, it requires additional time and material, and the components cannot be used afterwards. This is why surfaceCONTROL offers the possibility to impose defined characteristics (color, glossy finish) onto the captured 3D surfaces and inspect them on the monitor either under diffuse lighting or with a light bar. So without any additional material even the smallest defects become visible and can be assessed visually.
