Challenges to be overcome with surface inspections
Although inspectors see a large proportion of defects reliably and quickly, visual evaluation is often subjective and depends heavily on several factors. The aim of surface inspection is to achieve an objective and reproducible evaluation of the deviations in order to quickly and reliably make decisions with regard to component tolerances.
Therefore, we have developed different methods that systematically recognize relevant deviations from the surfaces and objectively evaluate these:
Typical defect types / inspection characteristics are:
- Impact lines
- Drag marks
- Sink mark
