Exhibiting for the first time at IMTS, DWFritz Automation, a provider of high precision automation, will introduce their new DWFritz Metrology line of new and innovative products in Booth No. 135348 in the East Building of McCormick Place in Chicago. Zero-Touch™, a recently patented non-contact multipurpose metrology platform will be on display, as well as AMP 3100, an automated high-speed non-contact metrology system ideal for 100% inspection of precision small parts, and the Defect Detection System a deep learning-based flexible inspection system that identifies surface imperfections on any material with speed, reliability and precision.
Zero-Touch™ is a highly configurable system that simultaneously captures multiple 3D dimensional measurements in a fraction of time compared to traditional CMMs. Zero-Touch™ 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 5-axis metrology platform that can achieve part inspection speeds up to10X faster than conventional tactile CMMs. A unique bridge rotation uses multiple non-contact measuring sensors including optical, laser line scanner, and confocal technologies. Seamless Zero-Touch™ CAD-based measuring software provides easy generation of part measurement plans using motion path creation, simulation and sensor parameter settings with no specialized programming required. The part’s generated 3D point cloud is transmitted to Innovmetric’s popular 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 color and gloss measurements for SPC, process optimization and integration with Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). With its high throughput capabilities, AMP 3100 can achieve processing speeds that exceed 4 parts per second making the system ideal for in-line manufacturing applications.
DWFritz’s 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. Combined with advanced robotics, custom multispectral lighting and custom fixturing, the Defect Detection System helps manufacturing improve product quality of part surfaces.
