SOLVARO invests in optical measuring machine for quality assurance

Solvaro, developer and manufacturer of perforated plate and non-perforated metal components, raises quality standards for the sector. The optical measurement system VQC enables three times more often quality checks during plate production.
March 20, 2012 - PRLog -- Investment in ongoing quality checks for top product quality

By investing around €100,000 in a VQC optical measuring machine, Solvaro has been able to improve and accelerate its quality assurance processes. ‘In addition to development performance, top product quality is one of the key factors for success in our sector. Our customers demand ever higher standards. With this technology, we can permanently check our quality and adjust our production processes in time as required. In this way, we ensure that we meet our customers’ increasingly rigorous quality requirements,’ explains Gerhard Bullinger, Solvaro CEO. The VCQ checks workpieces with a maximum weight of 200 kg and maximum dimensions of 2,000 × 1,250 mm in every phase of production. In less than five minutes, the machine has completely finished checking a workpiece that measures approx. 1,000 × 1,000 mm. The robust machine is located directly next to the production machines.

Optical measuring machine performs checks based on CAD drawing

The VQC uses an optical image processing system to scan the test object section by section. During the scan, the test object simply leans against a glass plate. The VQC precisely generates the actual contours of each section. Then it compares them to the nominal contours (CAD drawing) by means of superimposition. Deviations are displayed in colour. Since even minor deviations affect the look and function of the pieces produced by Solvaro, the VQC is programmed to detect them within a range of +/–0.05 mm. ‘When checking our plates for the automotive sector or server cabinets, for example, we can see where the deviations are and how large they are at a glance,’ says Bullinger. An additional advantage of this quick method: detailed measurement logs make it easier to analyse defects.
