Testimonials: Web and Surface Inspection


The Llanwern works rolls and coats strip steel. Today, some 1600 employees roll more than 1.5 million tons of steel a year.

“Corus’ decision to invest in cutting-edge inspection technology was born out of a synergy between customer and supplier. Corus is focused on delivering world-class service and support, together with top quality products. The major investment we made in on-line surface inspection gives us added confidence that the products we supply to our customers meets their exact requirements. Cognex supplied us a well proven system that has added value to our operations and is already delivering benefits to our customers. There are many other inspection systems available but choosing Cognex was the right thing for Corus. They not only installed a first-class quality system but they continue to work closely with us as part of a team which puts the customer and quality first.”

“I find the Cognex systems very reliable and the support from Cognex has been excellent. The new LED light sources have worked very well and I am very pleased not to have to change the bulbs for 5 or 6 years. The software is user friendly compared with our old inspection systems and we are picking up defects that the old systems missed. SmartView seems to be better able to classify “true” holes than the systems we replaced. Our old systems would occasionally classify thin spots as a holes”
