Automated Surface Inspection

Composites digital imaging

Many applications within the composites industry can benefit from the precise performance of vision systems for improved defect detection, increased throughput and traceability.

The composites industry is a mixture of traditional and new web forming techniques providing materials for creation of parts and components often previously made from traditional materials such as steel and aluminium, as well as more exotic materials such as Titanium.

The products created by new manufacturing processes often have a critical end use in industries such as automotive and aerospace. For this reason quality standards have become more rigorous and the need for an automated quality control solution is ever more pressing.

Composites digital imaging benefits

Shelton Vision have applied state of the art machine vision techniques that offer the following benefits:

  • The ability to set identifiable standards of visual quality control.
  • The ability to audit results and trace any deviation.
  • The ability to eject faulty components in real time.
  • Elimination of variable human subjectivity on day to day quality decisions.

With expertise in delivering stand alone systems, or systems integrated into a production process, Shelton Vision have the capability to provide solutions that often exceed expectations and often provide additional benefit to those identified at the outset of a project.

Shelton Vision have experience in inspecting 3D composite component manufacture.
