QUALITY CONTROL & INSPECTION SYSTEMS
Many of our packaging facilities contain devices to check the quality and traceability of the products being handled, ensuring that there isn't any strange element in food through the use of metal or X-ray detectors.
We have developed different systems that are able to perform more complex quality controls.
From the verification of safety elements in the automotive sector, to the detection of damages in fruits, vegetables, meats or fish.
In this page you can see some examples that can give you an idea of the possibilities that we can supply to assure the quality of its products.
Membrane keyboards quality control done by robotic pulsation.
In this case, a small Kawasaki R series robot is in charge of doing the necessary checks to assure good operation of the keyboard.
This compact robotic cell is capable of performing the mechanical quality test. Each key is checked one by one.
The quality test checks if the keys are being pressed in the correct sequence, and if a key is being pressed at the same time as another key.
If the result is positive, the machine continues its path towards the final customer, and if it is not, the broken keyboard is replaced.
In addition to the keyboards quality check, it is able to check if the displays are working as expected using computer vision.
Both tests are performed by the same robot with a dual gripper including a camera and touch sensor.
Quality control for automotive components.
Our colleagues from Roboconcept, developed a project for the inspection of a vital component of security systems from a prestigious European automotive brand inspection.
The system is able to inspect both the top and the bottom of the component.
Includes two computer vision cameras and two laser lines that allows to get the 3D vision.
If the result of the inspection is correct, the packet passes to the next station where it is labelled with an OK and some other data for traceability.
An industrial HMI controls the whole process and guides the operator along the functioning of the system.
It's an autonomous cell that can be easily transported, made with solid materials and with components from the top brands.
Wind turbine blades quality inspection using thermography.
Thermographic inspection is a nondestructive analysis technology that is capable of detecting failures that are not visible through thermal images of the surface of the object.
We use a heat source to produce a thermal contrast between the object of interest and the bottom. For example a blade with internal defects. If this technology is compared to other non-destructive techniques such as ultrasound or x-ray, it proves to be safer, non-destructive techniques such as ultrasound or x-ray, it proves to be safer, non-intrusive and without contact, allowing the detection of relatively superficial errors (a few centimeters deep) on large surfaces and in a very simple and fast way.
The technological and software development made by EiNA make this process much easier and with more possibilities than it had before:
- The surface heating has been reduced, which makes the process faster.
- The reach of the technology in terms of depth has been increased in such a way that 100% of the blade can be analyzed by this method.
- The software is capable of transforming the 2D data of the images into 3D volumes, which our analysis software can analyze, and then make decisions.
