2D & 3D Laser Scanning & Inspection

There are multiple ways to scan and inspect products. Laser scanning and inspection are by far the most popular and the most common. It provides the fastest, most accurate, and most cost-effective data acquisition solution. Laser inspection is frequently used in automation to ensure quality control by measuring and verifying dimensions, detect flaws and defects, detect correct assembly, and identifying target surface variations.

2D laser inspection and scanners should be used for applications such as steel and aluminum production, automotive, aerospace, electronics, robotics, and welding. 2D inspection scanners offer a large range of case sizes, measuring ranges, and accessory options to be used in a wide variety of measurement applications. However, 2D laser inspection is limited in its ability to achieve 100% quality control. For example, 2D sensors do not support measurement related to 3D shapes.

3D Laser profilers generate surface maps by stacking individual profiles into a continuous image. This is how 3D lasers can support and measure 3D shapes. 3D laser inspection and scanning have the ability to measure critical features such as object flatness, surface angles, or part volumes (2D cannot). If your organization needs to inspect every aspect of your part, product, or “target”, 3D laser inspection would be the best application. When 3D laser scanning and inspection is used to generate the product profile, it provides critical information for determining if the product meets quality tolerances for surface quality, assembly, fit and finish. Lastly, if you need to use robotic laser scanning and inspection, you will need to use a 3D laser inspection and scanning application since robotics work in a three-dimensional world.

Manufacturing Automation Functional Testing

Many mechanical assemblies and products require functional testing before being approved to ship.  Carrying out these tests manually is a very time-consuming and mundane process. It is often the exact same testing process performed repeatedly and is a big cause of employee burnout. Because the testing is repetitive in nature, it is also very error-prone when done manually. Automating your company’s functionality testing optimizes your manufacturing process, increases throughput, and saves on costs. These tests can be automated as a standalone machine or integrated into the assembly process. 

Types of functionality testing:

  • Range of Motion
  • Operational Force or Torque
  • Electrical Testing
  • Distance Measuring
  • Leak testing
  • 2D and 3D Laser Inspection
  • 2D and 3D Vision Inspection
  • Flow test inspection
  • Lot Traceability
  • Dimensional inspection

Automated Leak Testing

Reliable leak testing solutions are a critical part of automated assembly. Here at Simplimatic, the customer’s requirements are the main focus. We analyze customer specifications and offer various methods of leak testing solutions depending on your manufacturing application. No matter what your manufacturing process or industry is, our integrated testing solutions will meet your systems requirements. Our solutions will hold positive pressure or vacuum and measure flow, maintain flow and measure pressure or vacuum, and simple or differential pressure decay for leak detection.

Bubble testing is the simplest form of leak testing. This is done by submerging the test materials or product under water in a tank to watch for bubbles out of a leak location. Pressure decay leak testing can detect leaks by pressurizing the test object or vessel. Once pressurized, the leak test instruments control and read the measurement of lost pressure over a specific period of time. Vacuum decay leak testing is very similar to pressure decay testing systems because rather than pressurizing the vessel, we evacuate the air inside the object being tested.

Automated Leak Testing

Types of Leak Testing we do:

  • Bubble test
  • Pressure decay leak testing
  • Vacuum decay leak testing
  • Automated pass/fail leak limit
  • Calculate leak rate
  • Data outputs for statistical process control analysis
