CROMATEK pilot was prompted in response to a notorious concern in the market of high brilliance parts, and specially in a demanding industry as the automotive sector, with extremely high surface finishing requirements. Tecnalia, together with Maser, has developed an automated inspection system for chromed parts, where defects of up to 0.1mm2 or 0.1mm in the case of slim scratches, can be detected. This quality control system makes use of different technologies such as robotics, computer vision and neural networks for deep learning algorithms.
VIDRALA manufactures glass bottles of different colors, shapes and diameters. In the manufacturing process, bubbles may appear due mainly to the temperature and oven parameters. If their presence increases over time, it is necessary to modify the oven parameters so that the bottles have the desired quality. The goal of the system is the automatic detection of the presence of bubbles during the production process of the bottles in order to know the trend in its appearance. The system developed is flexible, so that it can be adapted to different diameters and shapes as well as different colors, as well as to the variation of the speed of the production process, up to 250 bottles / min and with a resolution capacity up to 0.1 x 0.1 mm2. Considering that the system has to work 3 shifts in a production environment, it has been robustly designed against for example, [...]
