This optical scanner lends itself for the automated visual inspection of pistons and cylindrical faces. Within a few s the entire surface is scanned with high quality and one can evaluate defects like polished and shiny areas, scratches, sink holes, voids, pits, carbonization, seizure marks, corrosion spots and defective coating.
This is accomplished using a photo diode array with an integrated light source to scan the surface in one go. The piston is put on the rotating supporting disk using an adapter plate and the scanner head is adjusted to the proper working distance using the cursor keys.
The scan is started by pressing a key and runs fully automated.
