Zero missed detection of even microscopic defects

Our Lulimo C automated visual inspection system can process rotational components in a 7 second cycle time. Manual inspections of these components are often affected by operator skill levels.

Automated visual inspection system for rotational components Lulimo C

  • Our proprietary all angle multi shot system enables complete inspection for microscopic defects in a cycle time of just 7 seconds with zero overlooked defects.
  • An integrated transfer system allows continuous high-speed processing of components from loading to inspection and finally unloading.
  • Surface irregularities due to lubricant or bonderizing marks are removed by our proprietary image processing, reducing excess detection.

​Automated visual inspection system for rotational components
Overview of Lulimo C

Inspection workflow

All inspection processes are performed automatically inside the system.

STEP1Registration of master images

Master images of approved components can be created in just a few minutes. Comparison with these masters enables even components with large tolerances to be inspected with great accuracy.

STEP2 Loading

We are able to design automatic loaders that can handle a wide range of components as optional units.

STEP3 Prealignment

Components loaded into the system are automatically transferred to the prealignment unit. Correction of the rotational axis is then executed to improve inspection accuracy.

STEP4 Inspection

After prealignment, components are automatically transferred to the inspection unit. This unit is equipped with 7 line cameras that are used to capture images for inspection. The images are then compared with the masters using our proprietary image processing technologies, enabling the detection of defects.

STEP5 Separation and unloading

Once inspection is completed, accepted and rejected components are finalized and sent to their respective unloaders for discharge.
