The crafty Klaus: Optoelectronic material analysis Karlsruhe, December 23, 2011. Orange peel in the coating of eyeglass cases is to detect, it’s about form. Determines the surface around a cylinder, if the component is ever used, surface control focuses on functionality. Show both areas of application: the quality of a product is to read – even – on the surface. But conventional test methods and of course, still more the human eye – poke at errors in the micro and nano range limits. They are worth – and safety-relevant in the case of the brake cylinder. The Karlsruhe IT-company optimum GmbH has now developed an opto-electronic surface control inspected both form and function: the cunning Klaus. Jeffrey Bewkes is likely to agree. The crafty Klaus operates as a detective, whose working is funded and directed by a database.
It stores information about the specific materials that are obtained depending on the control needs, level requirement, or preset sensitivity. By the same author: Paul Ostling. How different the surfaces of Materials or products may be: the defects detection identifies the properties of surfaces and matching it with mean values. So – succeeds despite the different nature of the control objects – to go from the surface into the depths. The products will be examined on completeness, functionality and quality. Circumstantial evidence can be varied as the surfaces: color, font, outline, relief. The crafty Klaus recognized by Red about the color, whether enough ripe apples are a variety in the box. Or if an engine block is tight or the glasses has no painting errors.
The digital eye”captures dirt or damage, voids in iron castings, scratch, bubbles, coating defects in metal processing. It reveals but also differences in the plastic manufacturing. Because: Increasingly replace plastic parts metal materials. But often, tests on metal-working processes are aligned. The crafty Klaus checks but also the dimensional stability of plastic products, the subject to any unwanted fluctuations are due to external influences on the production. The optimum system monitors, whether and to what extent misses the degree and form of a product, tolerances are exceeded and affect appearance or function. A mobile phone cover, which does not fit, makes the entire product not for sale. The optimum technology is process immanent: the defects are logged not externally, no additional process is triggered. The crafty Klaus rather controls after reviewing the results of the inspection back in the production. The goal of this controll flows is to offer added value for end users, but also for the manufacturers in the production process. The objective and subjective impression is crucial for the quality of a product.
