Since 2001 the crack detection system CiS.01 is said to be the reference in the field of crack detection. The device is used worldwide and is known for its reliability in monitoring production processes: damaged workpieces can be separated accurately from non-damaged workpieces. The data provided by the CiS.01 allows for optimization of the production process and to reduce scrap.
Abilities of CiS.01 at a glance:
- Optimal signal detection with QASS sensor technology and prefiltering
- Measuring is adjusted to the workpiece
- Availability of the device is constantly monitored by complex self-testing functions
- Measuring data is saved and can be used later for statistical evaluation
- Easy to operate
The Optimizer4D is a Linux PC-System based measuring computer, that has been equipped with special measuring hardware. This hardware is designed to process high-frequency ultrasonic signals (3GB/min). The signals are converted in well readable process images in real-time. Analyzing tools remove noise, highlight signals and determine deviations relative to previous processes.
Here you can see four process landscapes recorded by the Optimizer4D. The process characteristics are well distinguishable. In image 3 you can see a set of four bars, continuously repeating itself. The first and the last bar are comparatively less distinct. Every bar represents a blade of a multiple-blade-cutter. The deviations in intensity and cutting duration are caused by a concentricity deviation of 8µs.
The operator can zoom into the process landscape and by that detect even shortest events like cracks. In this he is supported by efficient software.
