Machine vision for extreme speed of quality check cycles
- Client: Manufacturer of formwork panels from Slovenia.
- Industry: wood.
- Product: formwork panels.
Challenges in production
- Manual inspection and replacement of bad wood knots were extremely slow, unreliable and expensive (high labor costs).
- Automatic detection of bad wood knots on both sides of the panel that supported different types of wood, even if these were combined on one panel.
- Automatic replacement of bad wood knots.
Key benefits for the customer
- Extremely higher speed of one inspection cycle, which was reduced from 15 to 40 seconds to 3 seconds per meter of inspected wood.
