Problem

Aluminum foundry final inspection of parts was missing 15% of parts with disqualifying defects at the end of the process.
Inspection requirements include:

  • Dimensional Check
  • Void Detection
  • Feature Presence
  • Feature Absence
  • Surface Quality
  • Finish Quality

Solution

Scan each surface using 3D sensor such as the SICK IVC3D or custom built sensors using the SICK Ranger camera. Feasibility study demonstrated high reliability part measurement and detection of features toleranced to CAD model affecting casting quality at both the demolding and final process stages.
