The automotive sector is perhaps the one where productivity aspects are of constant and significant importance. However, the qualitative aspects of production processes must not be forgotten, including non-destructive tests during the production stage. More and more parts are considered critical for the safety of the car users and, thus, are subject to inspection.
The magnetic particle inspection (MT) and liquid penetrant (PT) inspection lines must therefore meet two fundamental requirements: high productivity and high quality standards during inspection.
The ergonomic aspects of these types of systems are crucial for allowing operators to process large quantities of parts in complete safety.
New technologies that enable automatic defect detection are gaining ground. CGM R&D Department is in fact constantly looking for increasingly reliable solutions, being already able to offer to its customers various automation solutions.
