BSI3D / 3D Billet Surface Inspection system

Our BSI3D improves the quality and objectivity of your billet surface inspection  process while ensuring traceability, productivity and customer satisfaction


How it works

  • The BSI3D / Billet Surface Inspection system is usually placed above the existing conveyor, prior the ultrasonic inspection process;
  • Billet code identification is automatically performed;
  • A set of sensors collect high resolution tridimensional & photographic pictures;
  • The defects are automatically detected and quantified;
  • Inspection status is automatically transmitted to the process control system;
  • Complete information about defects found is stored into the database.

Key features

  • Operator free – completely automated;
  • Threshold values regarding defect detections can be adjusted ;

  • Automated detection of defects like:
    • Out of gas cushions;
    • Slip;

    • Zipper;

    • Bleed out;

    • Oxide patches;

    • Billet deflection;

  • Generates historical data allowing process optimization & quality follow-up / traceability;

  • Reads billet identification or/ add ID code (option);

  • Allows partial acceptance of the billet depending on the sub-lengths to cut;

  • Improves quality and objectivity of the inspection;

  • Integrates the state of the art 3D & 2D machine vision technologies;
