Inspection of abrasive disk surface
Quality control and surface inspection

A manufacturer of abrasive disks wanted to increase customer satisfaction by providing a final product free from defects and with a better finish. The method for manufacturing abrasive discs consists on the agglomeration of abrasive dust and its deposition on the disc. On the homogeneous deposition of dust depends the final quality. The lack of homogeneity is given either by the excess agglomerated dust (generating bigger granurality than expected) or by the lack of abrasive material.

A vision system checks the homogeneity of the abrasive product, both its absence and excess as this enables the manufacturer to deliver its abrasive discs with a higher quality standards than those of their competitors at a much lower cost.
