October 28, 2021

The Foreign Object Detection System quality control system detects foreign objects on simple surfaces, but also on demanding surfaces such as high-voltage batteries. The scalable system makes it possible to test a wide range of surfaces, regardless of their structure, texture and color. 3D cameras and the laser triangulation method ensure consistently high inspection quality. It maps surfaces three-dimensionally, thus detecting even the smallest foreign objects of the most varied shapes. In addition, customer-specific requirements can be integrated into the system, such as the detection of missing or incorrectly positioned screws.

At a glance

  •    –   Optical testing system for foreign object detection based on the laser triangulation method
  •    –   Scalable system setup with Ranger 3D vision cameras from SICK for 3D imaging
  •    –   SICK AppSpace environment for customer-specific applications
  •    –   Recipe management
  •    –   Display for data visualization

 

Your Benefits

  •    –   Detects very small foreign objects of various shapes, e.g. screws, nuts and tools
  •    –   Reliable and accurate testing, even for challenging surfaces with different colors, structures and textures. Suitable for light, dark, smooth, ribbed, calotted, glossy, matte and other surfaces
  •    –   No additional illumination required
  •    –   Visualization of results
  •    –   Additional detection tasks can be integrated, e.g. screw detection
  •    –   Quick and easy change of test objects
