Vision System applied to Brake Disks quality control

Sector: Automotive/brake disk

Application: Brake Disk Quality Control: defect detection in the ventilation chamber surface and measurement of 15 quotes (diameter, inter-axis positions) with centesimal resolution.

Integrazione: robotized control station.

With their dedicated features and a high -performance computing, Magyc vision systems are

widely used for various industrial applications which include the “Defects detecting and checking of the measures in tolerance”

In every industrial processing most of the product defects can be checked by human eyes. Often the inspection of the production is done by specialized operators, with high costs for the movement of pieces and for the employment of human resources.

The challenge:

  • reduce costs due to labor;
  • checking the whole production with objective and repeatable criteria.

Achieved targets:

 The application of a Magyc vision system for quality control of brake disks allows to reach the following benefits:

  • Elimination of human error and sostitution of labor with an automatized station;
  • Complete product checking with better precision and increase of production rates;
  • Statistics and data storage of the process;

In details the features of the system are:

  1. FULL SCAN OF THE DISC IN LESS THAN 4 SECONDS;
  1. DETECTION OF DEFECTS ON THE VENTILATION CHAMBER AND COOLING

CHANNEL UP TO THE ORDER OF MILLIMETERS;

3. IDENTIFICATION AND MEASUREMENT OF THE SEVEN HOLES OF THE  SUPPORTING PLAN;

  1. DIMENSIONAL CONTROL OF 15 MEASURES: DIAMETER, POSITIONS AND DISTANCES

OF THE HOLES WITH CENTESIMAL RESOLUTION

The choose  of the lighting method and sophisticated software filters applied on the source images guarantee high reliability and efficiency of the artificial vision control.
