Paper Abstract

At a time of rapid development, introduction of new technologies, and increasing world-wide competition, the quality specifications for products and materials becoming even more demanding. This also applies with regard to the avoidance of defects in the surfaces of materials. Consequently there is a need for systems which allow 100% in-line testing of materials and surfaces during the production of, e.g. textiles, data storage media, papers, films and metals. Thanks to its optical and electronical precision, its unlimited applications - even under the most severe conditions-and its absolutely constant acuity, compared with visual inspection, the Sick-Scan-System is an excellent means for improving quality and profits in industrial manufacture, reducing rejects production and thus providing even more customer satisfaction. Here we describe briefly our laser scanner technology. It will set new standards in the area of automatic inspection, and the term laser tested will stablish itself as a mark of quality. In the last few years laser scanning inspection systems have been further developed in collaboration with a large number of materials manufacturers. These systems have been adopted in modern production lines and demonstrate their economy.
