ISRA Extends Surface Vision To Paint Inspection

ISRA VISION is expanding its business activities in the field of surface inspection to include quality control technology for painted surfaces in the automotive and general industry.

A current major order in the double-digit Euro million range confirms the expected sales potential behind the strategic expansion of the inspection portfolio. The paint inspection system was presented in its newest innovative product conception at PAINTEXPO 2018 and AUTOMATICA 2018; by showcasing the product at these exhibitions ISRA was particularly addressing customers from more general industry sectors.

ISRA’s innovative new product inspects painted surfaces using embedded, robot-mounted PAINTSCAN sensors. Surfaces illuminated by highly powerful LEDs are analyzed with omni-directional camera shots, and defects are detected and classified. Combined with fully automatic robot path planning generated using CAD models, the systems ensure a high level of process efficiency. PAINTSCAN also features an integrated multi-camera and multi-processor hardware architecture and is already Industry 4.0 ready.

To demonstrate its paint inspection product, ISRA constructed its own technology center at its subsidiary in Darmstadt, Germany where numerous customers have already been impressed by the system performance. Designed for applications in general industry sectors and the automotive industry, targeting the potential of more than 300 lines worldwide, as well the requirements of smart and agile production, fully automated paint inspection system will contribute significant, long-term revenue potential to ISRA’s further growth.

The latest order encompasses the equipping of several lines operated by a German premium automotive manufacturer and will be executed largely over the course of the current and next financial year.
