Inline Inspection in Metal Processing:
Systems for easy and cost-effective integration

3D angle measurement in die pressing and other forming processes in metalworking enables direct readjustment of the process and thus reduces the production of faulty parts. This increases the productivity and efficiency of plants. Vision Components offers manufacturers of press brakes and similar applications intelligent systems that check angular accuracy and transfer their measurement results directly and in real time to the machine controller. They do not require an external computing unit - this saves costs and reduces complexity.

profile sensors based on laser triangulation

Flexible and cost-effective: Programmable stand-alone embedded laser profiler for easy OEM integration

Measuring bending angles in real time

The basis of the optical inline inspection system, which can be installed on either side of the die, is the VC nano3D-Z profile sensor. The compact unit consists of a laser module and an intelligent camera. It measures the angle between the workpiece and the die in real time and compares the values with a programmed reference value. In this process, the complete data analysis takes place directly on the autonomous systems - an external computing unit is not required. Due to the large detection range of the VCnano3D-Z laser scanner, a high variation of dies can be covered at one go without having to change the mounting of the laser sensor.

Direct adjustment of the bending process

A speed of up to 400 Hertz and the high measuring accuracy of +/- 0.1 degrees ensure fast and precise adjustment of the contact pressure during the bending process. For this purpose, the result of the angle measurement is transmitted directly to the control of the bending machine. The connection to a PLC is simple and uncomplicated. Since recently, the connection has even been integrated into the controls of the leading manufacturer Delem. The management of die and sensor data is thus possible directly via the controls. 

Optimised for metal processing

Shiny, metallic surfaces place high demands on systems for process and quality control. The VCnano3D-Z triangulation systems from Vision Components are equipped with a blue high-power laser that is specially optimised for this purpose. They can be used universally for measuring steel, sheet metal and other metals and are also suitable for foiled materials.

VC's proprietary Ambient Light Suppression technology makes the triangulation sensors extremely insensitive to ambient light of up to 100,000 Lux. Stainless steel components around the optics improve temperature stability. These properties, the robust and IP67-protected housing and the long-term availability of the systems make them the optimal choice for industrial applications.

Manufacturers of press brakes increase the angular accuracy of the processed sheets with the integration of the powerful inline angle measurement and thus increase the productivity and economic efficiency of their machines.

Angle measurement in sheet metal bending: Measuring bending angles and adjusting processes in real time

Easy system integration

The VC nano 3D-Z sensors can be easily and precisely mounted on any system thanks to their rear dowel holes. A corresponding adapter board is available for test operation, with which two sensors for front and rear angle measurement can be tool-free. The connection of the stand-alone angle measurement systems is then just as quick and easy directly to the PLC.

Delem - company background

For over 40 years, Delem has developed CNC control solutions for sheet metal machines in close partnership press brake manufacturers all over the world. The activities in the sheet metal industry were started in 1978 with the development of a controller for press brakes to synchronize the speed and end positioning of the two hydraulic cylinders. Since this start in the sheet metal industry, Delem has been steadily growing. The company is headquartered in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Today, it is part of KEBA AG, which is based in Linz, Austria.https://www.delem.com/
