Surface Inspection

Flawless Surfaces

Ensuring aesthetic and functionally flawless surfaces in production is one of the disciplines of industrial image processing. senswork offers several surface inspection solutions for different tasks - for example, to detect scratches, streaks, cracks or paint spots.

senswork also has solutions for different materials: from the inspection of reel goods and strip material to the inspection of curved or reflective surfaces. Even color flaws, coating defects, inclusions and paint run can be detected quickly and efficiently.

In combination with a self-learning system – Deep Learning with Cognex ViDi Suite – we create the perfect AOI with artificial intelligence for demanding application.


Our Solutions

Our surface inspection solutions include recognizing:

  • Scratches and streaks
  • Cracks
  • Pimples in finish
  • Damages, raises and indentions
  • Color defects and color deviations
  • Finish defects and inclusions
  • Finish runs

Surface Inspection of Reel Goods

We use line scan cameras for optical inspection of reel goods and strip products, which continuously check the surface for defects - with very high resolution down to the µm range and at high speeds.

Surface Snspection of Bent or Reflecting Surfaces

Curved, bent or reflective surfaces are often difficult to inspect with conventional image processing. senswork has an optimal solution for these applications in 2.5D methods such as photometric stereo. Thus senswork offers completely new perspectives in surface inspection technology. This innovative surface inspection system from senswork is especially useful in cases of low contrast and distracting reflections.
