In November 2014, the Bavarian State Ministry honoured Micro-Epsilon with a special award for its reflectCONTROL surface inspection system in the "Cooperation Economy-Science" category.
reflectCONTROL automatically detects the smallest unevenness, bumps and roughness, guaranteeing the 100% quality control of industrial, reflecting surfaces in cycle times.
The system provides quantitative analysis of defects and offers high sensitivity. Developed by Micro-Epsilon, the system operates fully automatically. Compared to previous manual inspection methods, the system offers significant advantages. Due to its continuously high reliability, the smallest surface defects can be detected, minimising costly rework of the vehicle chassis. The inspection system is installed on several parallel working robots and has been successfully applied in high volume automotive production for the inspection of surface defects.
