The "all-wheel drive" on surface analysis

The STATOVISION software showcases eddy current signals via a clear C-scan. Afterwards, the surface quality of the tested components can be visualized.

The effective pattern recognition of the STATOVISION software fades out interfering contours such as holes or grooves. For the first time, intermediate areas or surface defects adjacent to interfering contours can be determined.

The comprehensive product documentation of the scan makes continuous quality assurance possible, while providing traceability in the event of damage and considering constantly increasing demands on the quality process.

When testing methods of surface analysis reach their limits, STATOVISION goes beyond.

New dimensions in component testing

Even with interference contours, the fully automated STATOVISION software makes the testing of complex components smoother. It is non-destructive and cost-effective, and can also be used for non-ferromagnetic materials.

Besides, it filters and hides interference signals in a targeted manner, where previous areas had to remain unchecked due to interference contours, and has the potential to produce technically reliable reports on complex surfaces.

Clear C-Scan-display

The quality of a component surface is presented via a high-resolution C-Scan. Defects can thus be localized precisely. The data is then stored to provide comprehensive statistics and complete documentation to ensure traceability to be able to guarantee this. By superimposing several filters, disturbing process influences can also be (e.g. tool wear) are detected at an early stage and be corrected in order to avoid a too high reject rate and to avoid.


Comparison of test methods for surface analysis

Legend: Defect resolution: Degree of detail of the defects' representation, Objective test result: Degree of reproducibility of the results independent of the tester, Automation: Extent of the possibility of integration into an automation process, Consumables: Additional costs when using the process Cycle time: Amount of the possible cycle time compared to the alternative processes, Component complexity: Degree of complexity of the testable component shape compared to alternative processes, Results documentation: Extent of the test information recorded for each test part

Application 1: Grinding fire test for rolling bearings

Many symptoms of the grinding fire, such as tensions, structural changes or hardening caused by the process mechanically or thermally, cannot be detected visually in most cases. Commonly, cracks easily appear on the surfaces at the time of operation.

Current processes require an automatable, effective and efficient alternative. In addition, it should be objective when it comes to interpreting the results, and applied completely non-destructively. Furthermore, a comprehensive documentation option is becoming increasingly relevant.

STATOVISION meets these requirements. It is also possible to carry out an analysis of the data after the test by means of filter settings, which makes malfunctions in the process visible. Process tracing and control is made considerably easier.

Application case 2: Hole blanking for brake disks

The highest mechanical and thermal requirements are placed on safety-relevant components such as brake discs. Quality assurance must not only be automated and fully documented. It is essential that surfaces are thoroughly inspected over the entire surface, especially in areas adjacent to interfering contours.

With STATOVISION, boreholes can be specifically defined and automatically faded out. During the inspection, only surface defects in the defined format are detected and their position is visualized via eddy current signals. Conversely, grooves or chamfers can be specifically included in the surface analysis.

Use case 3: Reduce pseudo rejects through test documentation

The STATOVISION software provides the production facility with a clear traceability and thus control. Raw data and reports can be transferred to the quality control system. With the help of a complete documentation of parts and location of the individual defects, test components can be reworked in a comprehensible, visual form. With one picture per inspected piece, a 100% documentation of the surface quality is generated. This feedback can be applied to the production process itself and enables the detection of tool wear via eddy current images.

Expand the variety of solutions

Besides crack detection, STATOVISION can also be connected to test systems with additional functions, e.g. the display of magnetic remanences. Thus, the range of applications can be extended by further functionalities to optimize the production process.

Call to Action

What advantages does  STATOVISION offer you?

Spatially resolved data

Defects can be clearly assigned to the position on the test part.

Efficiently connected 

Easy integration in control systems thanks to PROFINET® connection.

Configuration Manager

Easier setup of the basic configuration, including the control type or encoder.

Distance compensation

Software functions such as filters and blanking functions can be recorded including distance compensation.

Extensive amounts of data

Even large surfaces such as rolling bearings can be detected. Images with up to 44 megapixels are possible.

Similarity threshold

Defining the number of interfering contours to be blanked out provides a warning in case of deviations after similarity threshold testing.

Solid process 

The evaluation provides correct results even at irregular test speeds.

Team player

The test configuration of the STATOVISION is transparent, safe and easy to document and also takes over the configuration when connecting the test device STATOGRAPH CM.

Flexible report formats

STATOVISION creates reports as required in PDF, PNG or CSV formats.
