QA Vision visualizes failures
and secures quality

In the field of con­tact­less mea­sur­ing sys­tems Quality Automation GmbH pro­vides its expe­ri­ences regard­ing sur­face analy­sis, geom­e­try checks, direc­tion­al fab­ric checks and atten­dance checks. In case of Keyence-sys­tems we have dif­fer­ent addi­tion­al prod­ucts at our dis­pos­al that should sim­pli­fy the instal­la­tion and the use of these systems.

For the real­iza­tion of the appli­ca­tions area scan­ning cam­eras as well as line scan­ning cam­eras are applied. In case of restrict­ed space prob­lems also mini cam­eras are used.

In order to guar­an­tee the func­tion­al reli­a­bil­i­ty in after­wards oper­a­tion the tech­ni­cal prepa­ra­tion of a fea­si­bil­i­ty study before instal­la­tion in the process run is always pos­si­ble. By using a test set­up the study is pre­pared in our test lab­o­ra­to­ry and pos­si­ble real­iza­tion alter­na­tives are prepared.

Standard holder for Keyence-cameras

The stan­dard hold­er for Keyence-cam­eras offers a quick instal­la­tion and adjust­ing of the cam­era. By using microm­e­ter screws a quick and accu­rate adjust­ment in x- and y‑direction as well as a 360° rota­tion of the cam­era is pos­si­ble at any time and cre­ates a time sav­ing for lat­er adjustments.

Technical data

  • External dimen­sions (LxBxH)(mm): 90 x 119,3 x 215
  • Possibility of adjust­ment in y‑direction (mm): +- 35mm
  • Material: Aluminium

Standard mask for Keyence-systems

The stan­dard mask for Keyence sys­tems cre­ates an alter­na­tive to the in-house Keyence mask as HMI- appli­ca­tion. It offers advan­tages in the menu selec­tion and fault indi­ca­tion lead­ing to an improved clear­ness of machine data and conditions.

In case that the mea­sur­ing sys­tem has to be adjust­ed in a while mea­sur­ing fields or lines can be edit­ed and saved direct­ly by the HMI with­out using addi­tion­al equip­ment. This reduces down times and sup­port time.

Surface analysis

Check of com­plete­ness, con­t­a­m­i­na­tion or the like.

Geometry checks

Measuring of lengths and angles of dif­fer­ent objects.

Directional fabric checks

Layer detec­tion even of metal­lic sur­faces with inte­grat­ed direc­tion­al fab­ric adjust­ment and sub­se­quent check measurement.

Attendance checks

Detecting and count­ing of falling midget objects by means of line scan­ning cameras.


Recording and read­out of 2D-Matrix-codes on dif­fer­ent mate­ri­als e.g. on syn­thet­ics or copper.
