HeiDetect Wheel Robot
The HeiDetect Wheel Robot wheel test facility achieves an extremely high throughput thanks to its industrial robot and is therefore ideal for inline operation in the mass production of cast aluminium wheels. Several areas of the wheel can be tested in one testing position by using a larger detector. This benefit means that the number of handling steps can be reduced, thus shortening the test time for each wheel.
HeiDetect Wheel Robot is a fully automatic wheel test facility and, through the integration of the ISAR image evaluation software and the XEye detector developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, allows almost pseudo error-free evaluation with stable image quality. The efficient processing of images allows casting errors such as shrink holes, pores, cavities and foreign matter in the range of 3% of the radiographed wall thickness to be detected and classified. Large areas of oxide can be detected from a size of 1 % of the wall thickness.
