General Inspection, LLC installed another Gi-100DT inspection system, this time in California, for a manufacturer of precision aerospace bushings. This Gi-100DT is equipped with a total of six cameras providing complete dimensional inspection, internal and external visual defect detection, top and bottom surface inspection for a full range of turned aerospace bushings.
Dimensional Inspection: The Gi-100DT comes standard with three cameras, one from the side, one from the bottom and one from the top. The side camera measures all profile features including threads, lengths, diameters, and angles. The top and bottom cameras measure OD, ID, roundness, and concentricity. Parts are measured to print specifications through Gi’s user friendly software, each dimension is saved and recalled by part number for fast part to part changeover.
Visual Defect Detection: In addition to the dimensional inspection, the Gi-100DT also detects surface defects on the top, bottom, and inner step diameters. The surface defects include dents, scratches, chatter, pitting, and chips. This system is equipped with three additional cameras each with patented optics positioned above and below the parts to detect internal and external visual defects. Defects such as cracks, burrs, dents, and other damage are detected using Gi’s algorithms, advanced lighting techniques, and unobstructed part view handling technique.
After searching the world for an inspection system with complete dimensional and visual defect detection capabilities the manufacturer selected Gi. Defect detection, fast changeover, and inspection rates (minimum of 300 parts per minute) were the deciding factors.
