System to check for cracks on pressed steel

The requirement

Quality control.
A system to check for cracks on cold-pressed mechanical parts was required, commencing with batch loading.

The solution

A vibrating feed/orientation system positions each part ready for collection via a rotating chuck with grippers. A unit controlled by eddy currents assesses the uniformity of the material, including beneath the external surface.
The part is placed in one of two separate channels depending on the result of the inspection.
Installed in Italy.
