Mesh Inspection

Mesh Inspection

Inspection of metal mesh to check all of the links have been joined correctly

The Challenge:

To check that all joints in a continuous web of metal mesh material. Also, to check the formation of each ‘diamond’ to establish correct size and shape. This needs to be done while the web is fed past at a rate of 5m/minute.

The system needs to detect any deviations in the web to an accuracy of 0.5mm.

Our Solution:

A 2K line scan vision system that continuously acquires small “slices” of the web as it moves past and stitches them together to form a large image that is continuously checked for defects. The camera is integrated to a PLC and green / amber /red traffic light warning system, allowing the operator to make adjustments to, or stop the line.
