3D inline metrology – fast, precise measurement

Components with faulty dimensions often have to be reworked or rejected. Intelligent 3D inline metrology from inos solves this problem by using process monitoring to check components’ dimensions quickly, precisely and efficiently in real-time without having to remove parts from the production line. With inos, customers stay agile and save time and money.

Always in view: Your products’ quality and dimensions

Turnkey solution for quality inspection

The core of every production and manufacturing process is high-quality workpieces – in the right dimensions. However, both external and internal factors can lead to process deviations and affect the dimensions of critical features. Skilled personnel must stop production, find the source of the problem, quarantine the affected products, and then either manually rework or reject them. This is neither efficient nor profitable for companies in any industry.

inos supports companies in mastering these tasks and makes inspection processes more efficient and economical with machine vision. As a turnkey solution for inspecting dimensions, inos’ 3D inline metrology significantly reduces the rework and reject rate for workpieces and component groups, as well as overall inspection time. The use of inos image processing systems in quality inspection leads to lasting increases in competitiveness and productivity and sustainably reduces the quality assurance department’s work.

 

Advantages of 3D inline metrology

Dimensional control

Quality

The continuous optical measurement of components eliminates error-prone manual inspections. More frequent inspections and optimized production parameters improve product quality and quality monitoring.

Time

With inline measurement, the components no longer must be removed from the line and measured at a different location. When you use fixed or robot-guided sensors, all measurements can take place simultaneously. This improves cycle time and reduces the overall inspection time enormously.

Cost

Since production does not have to be interrupted for inline dimensional inspection, companies do not incur financial losses. The transparency of the software-based, industrial 3D measurement technology allows for reliable, timely root cause analysis. The specialist personnel’s efforts can be targeted more efficiently.

Flexibility

Inline metrology solutions from inos are easy to implement, allowing systems to ramp up faster and customers to respond more quickly and agilely. Advances or new models can be easily integrated into existing processes without mechanical changes. This enables a high level of system availability.

 

Creation of a measurement plan and execution of inline metrology

Functionality

In a matter of seconds, inos’ turnkey solutions record the workpiece’s dimensions. Optimal planning and robust measurement are the linchpins of any fast, precise and reliable inline metrology. inos’ measurement system is based on CAD data, which the customer digitally configures in the inos software, significantly reducing commissioning time.

Customers have a choice: do inline measurement on the robot, in the tunnel or with a hybrid system. Each method records the measurement characteristics in absolute component coordinates – within seconds, the customer has results for several component dimensions.

Our powerful reporting software – inos Analyzer – can track measurements and KPIs from multiple production lines and multiple devices in real-time. In addition, inos offers a customized reporting solution for companies. In addition to transparency, the software offers maximum flexibility as it is web-based and does not need to be installed on a PC.
