Paper Abstract

We have developed a prototype for in-line detection of surface defects in metallic wires, specially for scratches. A simple geometrical relationship between surface topography and conical reflection, permits to correlate the defects with intensity patterns in a simple way. The presented apparatus consists basically in a grating-divided laser beam incident on angular equidistant points. A CCD and an associated optics capture the information of the whole wire perimeter at once. Analytic rudiments are provided in agreement with the experimental results.
