Why Optical Inspection?

April 3, 2016
Macro Trend Towards Non-Contact Inspection: Growth of non-contact inspection is outpacing contact inspection and optical technologies are projected to replace current contact technologies
Quality and Efficiency Implications
- Reduced Inspection Duration and Higher Inspection Rate compared to non-automated, contact inspection
- Capability to Inspect Complex and Non-Symmetric Surface: Scanners can inspect parts not suitable for contact inspection, such as Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM)
- Lower Cost Applications: Cost savings from (1) automation replacing human labor (2) higher inspection rate decreasing parts failure rate
