Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

The extended instruction set with solutions for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is now available within EyeVision 4. With this NDT instruction set, the detection of cavities or other structures within objects is now much easier. The variety of heat sources supported enables detection on many different materials. In addition to the LockIn basic solutions, process-based or impulse-based recognition of internal structures can now also be implemented more easily. With the new instructions, different layers of paint or structural damage in the carbon fiber material, but also any type of cavities in parts, for example in foam-based products such as dashboards, can be detected. With the support of the various thermal imaging camera manufacturers, Eye Vision Technology can find the right combination of camera and heat source or even passive heat. This selected combination is based on your product or your production process. Any errors in the thermal imaging technology are recognized by the EyeVision 4 software.

For efficient error detection, EVT offers users a new intelligent thermal imaging camera combined with an industry standard camera. The innovative image processing software EyeVision 4 is integrated into this and enables the application to be released with just a few clicks of the mouse.

EVT homogeneity inspector

Quality is the key to success. Until a few years ago, customers tolerated slight scratches in homogeneous surfaces. Nowadays, however, the customer expects a flawless, scratch-free surface. The “traditional” image processing quickly reaches its limits because the errors that occur in an infinite number of variants and thus cannot be clearly described.

Deep learning or AI (artificial intelligence) in image processing is the key to success here. Eye Vision Technology has succeeded in integrating the complex functionality in an uncomplicated software command within the EyeVision image processing software. As a user, you do not have to deal with the complex artificial intelligence, but can adjust it to your application with just a few adjusting screws thanks to the homogeneity inspector.

A typical application of the homogeneity inspector is the detection of scratches in the stainless steel industry. If, for example, scratches and anomalies are detected in the raw material before a stamping process, these can be left out during the actual stamping process so that only scratch-free stamped parts are produced, the overall visual impression of which does not provide any reason for customer complaints.

But also large-scale abnormalities such as the structure of a surface can be checked and qualified with the homogeneity inspector. The homogeneity inspector helps you to achieve error-free and therefore more efficient production.
