DIE CAST AUTOMATED INSPECTION PLATFORM

Die cast parts have tight tolerances, requiring highly accurate dimensional inspection. Surface defect detection is equally important to ensure consistent quality finished parts.

Our Die Cast Automated Inspection Platform includes options for contact and non-contact dimensional inspection, surface defect detection, and a broad range of advanced inspection and automation integration.

Dimensional Inspection

  • Clear Through / Diameter Check
  • Cylindricity
  • ID/OD
  • Parallelism
  • Perpendicularity
  • Profile
  • True Position

Defect Detection

  • Blistering
  • Feature Absence / Presence
  • Porosity of Machined Surfaces
  • Customer Defined Surface Defects
  • Tight Tolerance Defect Detection

ROLL FORM AUTOMATED INSPECTION PLATFORM

Roll formed parts require hole alignment and profile measurements are precise, weld nuts are present, and welds are inspected to ensure quality finished parts. Our Roll Form Automated Inspection Platform ensures finished parts meet end-customer requirements.

Performance Highlights

  • End-of-line inspection eliminates the need for time consuming fixture or CMM part checks
  • Average 25-second cycle time for 50 points of measurement
  • Designed to allow for at-build or future integration of robotic part load / unload
  • Cycle time enables future capacity expansion without additional inspection costs
