Production integrated continuous inspection for composites
The unique physical setup and full automation capability of APODIUS ContInspect allows for complete inspection of both top and bottom surfaces of composite raw materials. Defects are quickly detected and flagged, allowing for quick correction, extensive reporting and a significant reduction in material wastage.
The camera-based inspection system is scalable for a width up to 2.5 metres and is triggered by the plant’s production speed, ensuring a complete and continuous digitisation of the entire material reel.
Real-time defect detection
Defects such as gaps, fuzzballs and missing stitches as well as deviations in fibre orientation are detected and located in real-time thanks to the custom-built functionality of APODIUS Explorer ContInspect.
Mapping for traceability
Quality values and measurement results are logged into a defect map to guarantee an integrated traceability over the whole production process.
Detected defects are automatically stored and summarised in a measurement report that categorises each defect based on its kind, size and location, making the retroactive location and potential further assessment of defects easier than ever before.
