Inspection and sorting of bulk material and small parts – with high throughput and accuracy

Automated rotary plate testing systems in the Kistler series KVC 821 are the ideal choice to meet the increasing requirements for adaptative surface testing as well as dimensional checking of individual parts Testing is performed on a continuously rotating plate with a glass ring attachment and a regulated servo drive with a friction clutch. Depending on their size and weight, the parts for testing are fed in via an integrated or separate feeder system. The optimum target feed rate can be set with the help of the integrated software.

Individual testing and sorting functions for the inspection of bulk material and small parts:

  • Dimensional accuracy checks on individual parts
  • Adaptive surface inspection thanks to the Trevista reflected light dome illumination unit based on shape-from-shading technology
  • 360°-inspection of inner and outer lateral surfaces
  • Hardness testing
  • Integration of 3D measurement systems
