Brake Pad Defect Detection

3D visions sensors create a topographical image of a surface to identify defects

Challenge:

Perform 100% reliable inspections on brake pads after the grinding process to ensure product safety and quality.

Solution:

DS1100 displacement sensors were installed to inspect each brake pad as it moved past the laser line. Once the image was created, the software then located the brake pad and applied dimensional measurements at the same location of each part.

Results:

The manufacturer dramatically reduced production costs by identifying defective brake pads before shipping to end users. This reduced the risk of large returns from customers as well the risk of defective products being installed on production vehicles. They also eliminated manual inspection and cut labor costs.
