The visual inspection describes the optical inspection of a product or produced part for defects or production errors. As a non-destructive method of quality assurance, visual inspection is particularly suitable for the detection of scratches or defects, but also for the inspection of foreign particles or other external defects.
In addition to the "industrial image processing" test tool, which is increasingly finding its way into medical technology, optical quality assurance is still used.
Although the artificial intelligences are getting better and better, they still do not come close to the sensitivity of humans. The eye and the hand are still the number one measurement tools. For this reason, some tests cannot yet be completely replaced by the AI.
In medical technology, optical quality assurance is often only supplemented with the use of industrial image processing and runs simultaneously.
Depending on the test task, these can be tested using the transmitted light method or incident light. We will help you to find suitable lighting from our range. Particularly with a combination of an optical test with an industrial inspection, it must be ensured that the lighting meets both requirements:
- high quality light spectrum for optical testing
- pleasant diffuse light for the examiner
- high-frequency light for industrial image processing
- Shadow-free light as a good basis for the evaluation software
- smooth housing structures for easy cleaning
- low heat development of the light fields
