TEXT READING
Reading raised black letters and numbers on a black rubber surface is highly challenging, but essential to manage the tire manufacturing and distribution process. SmartRay 3D solves an application that is virtually impossible to solve with 2D vision systems.

SCRATCH DETECTION
Scratches on the interior trim of new cars are equally unacceptable to both consumers and vehicle manufacturers. SmartRay 3D identifies and quantifies scratches and other surface damage on both plastic and metal interior trim components.

RIVET INSERTION
Joining sheet metal parts together with rivets forms a very strong assembly, but only if the rivets are correctly inserted and well formed. SmartRay 3D inspects the shape, height and profile of the rivet heads in a single inspection operation.
image
GLUE BEAD PROFILE
If the sealant glue bead that is applied to fixed windows is not of a consistent and accurate size, the vehicle integrity will be compromised and it will fail quality control. SmartRay 3D ensures high quality by inspecting the shape and profile of the bead prior to assembly.

SOLAR CELL
Any damage to a solar cell can dramatically reduce conversion effeciency. Inspection with SmartRay sensors during the manufacturing process, identifies and quantifies defects in 3 dimensions, to avoid additional processing stages being applied to faulty cells.
image
PCB
With any PCB it is critical that every component is correctly oriented, is in the right position relative to the solder pads and is seated correctly on the board. SmartRay 3D carries out a complete check of the board and all components both before and after soldering.
image
MISSING KEYS
Keypads and keyboards are manufactured in high volume and contain multiple unique parts in each assembly. SmartRay 3D checks that all keys are present, each one is in the correct position, they are correctly oriented and that all the keys are the same height.

TABLET COMPUTER
Customer expectations for the quality of tablets is very high. SmartRay 3D helps maintain exceptional quality levels by inspecting the surface finish of both the front glass of the tablet and the rear case, for scratches and other surface defects.

READING 2D DOT PEEN CODES
Dot pean code marking is used on many jet engine components so they can be uniquely identified throughout there lifecycle. SmartRay 3D sensors obtain clear, consistent images of these 2D codes irrespective of the surface finish or temperature effects on the turbine blades.

ADHESIVE DISPENSING
For products to be shipped securely it is vital that they are packaged correctly. Inspecting the coverage and volume of transparent glue on a cardboard surface is hard to monitor manually. But with SmartRay 3D, consitent packaging quality is much easier to achieve.
image
TOOL DAMAGE
Machining centres use a vast array of different interchangable tools and often run for long periods without human intervention. SmartRay 3D is ideal for inspecting each tool for damage before the start of the machining operation it is about to be used for.
image
THREAD INSPECTION
Bolts are relatively low cost components, but if a bolt with a damaged or incorrect thread is screwed into a complex metal casting it can cause an expensive problem. SmartRay 3D sensors inspect threads for thread profile, damage and diameter in a single operation.
Consumer

SHAPE AND SIZE SORTING
Supermarkets like to present fruit to their customers in consistent sizes and regular shapes. SmartRay sensors can build a 3 dimensional model of any object, so that it’s size, shape and volume can be calculated. This data is used to control the automatic fruit sorting system.
image
CAP SHORT SHOT
An incomplete plastic moulded bottle cap can result in a failed seal and leakage from the bottle after manufacture. To avoid negative feedback from retailers and consumers, SmartRay 3D detects incomplete mouldings to ensure faulty parts never reach the filling line.
image
DAMAGED CONTENTS
It sometimes happens during the blister pack filling process that the content can get damaged or trapped in the packaging. SmartRay 3D checks that all pockets in the blister pack are filled, that the contents are undamaged and that there is no deformation in the packaging.
image
LID SEATING
For perishable foods, it is particularly important that the packaging is airtight and correctly sealed. SmartRay 3D sensors check the height of food lid, to ensure that they are fully seated onto the food container, 360 degrees around the edge.
