September 5, 2018 – DWFritz Automation, a provider of high-precision automation, is exhibiting for the first time at IMTS 2018 and will introduce its new DWFritz Metrology line at the show.
Zero-Touch, a recently patented non-contact multi-purpose metrology platform, measures part features and complex geometries such as bores, undercuts and chamfers, in addition to complex surface topology, such as surface finish, color and gloss. It features a rotating bridge five-axis metrology platform that can achieve part inspection speeds up to 10 times faster than conventional tactile CMMs. The part’s generated 3D point cloud is transmitted to Innovmetric’s Polyworks analysis software, creating a detailed inspection report with actionable information for improving manufacturing processes.
AMP 3100 is an automated high-speed non-contact inspection system that features a state-of-the-art machine vision system, lasers, custom lighting and advanced robotics. The system captures dimensional and angular measurements and 3D profiles, cosmetic features, and colour and gloss measurements for SPC, process optimization and integration with manufacturing execution systems (MES). AMP 3100 can achieve processing speeds that exceed four parts per second, making the system ideal for in-line manufacturing applications.
Finally, the Defect Detection System is a flexible inspection system that combines machine vision with deep learning algorithms that are ideal for surface detection defects for glossy, shiny or rough surfaces. While traditional machine vision systems use complex rules-based algorithms and require precis defect definitions, the deep learning software learns from images of good and bad parts, reducing the time needed to specify defects and respond to changing requirements.
