GreCon SUPERSCAN SPR

Continuous objective sorting of raw panels with the surface inspection system SUPERSCAN SPR

  • Panel width: up to 3150 mm (124 inch)
    Panel length: up to 8000 mm (315 inch)
    Panel thickness: 5 to 80 mm (0.20 to 3.15 inch)
    Defect size: from 4 mm² (0.006 square inch)
    Temp. panel surface: up to 90 °C (194 °F)
    Temp. production hall: up to 45 °C (113 °F)
       
  • GreCon measuring systems are generally equipped with the online support GreCon SATELLITE. On demand, this system provides safe and fast remote support. Each online support is logged and stored in the system’s history.

  • applications in raw panel productions:

    |after the sander

     

    | after pressing or forming processes

     

    | inspection of goods received for further processing

The Surface Inspection System SUPERSCAN SPR inspects the surface of each panel inline to ensure consistent sorting. The automatic image processing system guarantees 100 % inspection and allows continuous, consistent sorting by detection of surface  defects of raw panels. Detailed conclusions for upstream production process adjustments are possible through defects and statistics reports. Thus, not only sorting, but also the entire production process can be optimised.

Each panel is inspected by a camera system on the top and bottom surfaces. Thus, defective areas are detected where the surface differs from the normal surface. Any detected area is classified in types of faults and defects. The parameterisation of quality allocation and sorting rules is adjustable. The data of surface faults or defects of each panel is shown on the monitor. The inspection results are transferred to the PLC of the production machine, which will conduct the sorting of panels.

Benefits at a glance

  • Reliable, objective, complete inspection of sanded panel
  • Evaluation of sanding results
  • Detection, classification and distinction of defect types
  • Early detection of defects prior to downstream coating processes
  • Detailed reports on defect location on the panel
  • Independent learning of new defect types
  • Creation of individual sorting criteria

Design of the system

The basic construction of the measuring system is a solid, closed frame. Doors allow easy access to individual measuring components. Slight overpressure provides optimum measuring conditions while cooling the light source.

Depending on the kind of inspection required - one- or two-side inspection - the modular, lacquared steel frame carries a bottom and /or top frame.

Conveying tables (belt or rollers) are installed before and after the scanner

Different lighting modules are available for classification of different defects.:

Further Information

Measuring method

The detection of faults and defects is done by two inspection systems that are integrated in the frame and inspect the panel surface with different lighting concepts. The inspection performance results from a combination of the results of both systems. One system is the basic module and uses lighting vertically from above. The other system uses inclined lighting and is called topological module.

 

The image data from these modules are combined, defective areas located and the faults and defects classified. Panels are sorted according to allowed defect sizes that can be individually adjusted for each defect type.

Software

The user-friendly software of GreCon measuring system is based on the operating system Windows. Database, recipe administration and customized report functions provide those information the user needs quickly and clearly either in numerical or in graphical representation.

    • Light patches (glue, water, …)
    • Dark patches (oil, rubber, resin, bark,…)
    • Coarse chip in the surface, spreading faults
    • Unsanded areas, rough areas, dust patches
    • Cracks (in the surface)
    • Break-offs at panel edge or corner
    • Cross-stripes, sanding mistakes, chatter marks, holes
    • Unsanded areas, rough areas, dust patches
    • Cracks (in the surface)
    • Break-offs at panel edge or corner
    • Cross-stripes, sanding mistakes, chatter marks, holes, indentations
    • Dents, elevations, blisters
    • Pin stripes

    Most of the mentioned faults and defects can be exclusively and clearly allocated to a special defect type by combining both modules.
