Paper Abstract

The extensive use of graphite structures in aircraft has created a need for new manufacturing and quality assurance techniques. As a part of the Integrated Flexible Automation Center development program, a high speed, automated video inspection system has been developed. This system presently interfaces with four video cameras and a solid state linear array camera. The inspection tasks for this application include detection of flaws in graphite material as it is dispensed, ply identification, and verification of position and orientation on a robot transfer head. Inspection problems and system architecture are described in this paper.
