Surface Inspection of Graphite

Shape-from-Shading system inspects graphite surfaces for damage

Today, die-pressed carbons and graphites are used in large quantities to manufacture a wide variety of subcomponents for the automotive industry, such as fuel and water pumps.

To ensure that the products leave the production line free of defects, senswork has developed a fully automated system for the quality assurance of such components together with a large mechanical engineering company from Rosenheim. With a cycle time of less than one second, 6 cameras check the 6 surfaces of a component using shape from shading. Even the smallest surface defects and cracks, including varying degrees of surface gloss, are perfectly reproduced.
