The surfaceCONTROL product line was designed specifically for the inspection of diffusely reflecting surfaces, e.g. metallic surfaces (uncoated, electroplated, EPD), plastic surfaces and ceramics. The sensor based on the fringe projection principle scans the surface and generates a 3D point cloud of this surface. Therefore a sequence of structured light pattern is projected on the surface. The calibrated cameras use this pattern for searching corresponding points, from which the 3D data is calculated. Measuring areas of a few cm² up to 0.25m² are available.
