Cold rolling is an important part of the manufacturing process for thin aluminum strip and sheet. Effective quality control at this stage, by monitoring dents, scratches and other surface defects, can protect from claims and reduce costs throughout the production process.
The speed of the cold rolling mill and the hot, wet environment (which leads to steam) makes manual inspection very difficult, allowing control and inspection only at the beginning and end of the coil. However, these factors can also present challenges to an automated system.
AMETEK Surface Vision's SmartView® system provides an effective solution that overcomes the difficulties of the cold mill process to deliver reliable, highly sensitive defect inspection in real time, supported by streaming high-definition video that allows re-inspection without re-coiling.
