Innovative 3D technology with directed line lasers enable to detect further defects.

The ColourBrain® Edge 4.0 inspection system is the next step in the improvement of defect detection and the consistent revision of all user interfaces towards a system-wide and uniform look & feel in user interface. The system is used to inspect furniture parts in edge banding machines from various manufacturers. The detection of edge chipping, open glue joints, partially or completely missing edges and protruding edge bands are just as much part of the functional scope as the detection of geometric features such as grooves and drill holes and their differentiation from defects. The system can be used either in series production or in batch 1 production for defect detection and process optimization and ideally complements the ColourBrain® Furniture 4.0 system. Standardized interfaces reduce the effort for integration into the processing machines to a minimum. The outstanding strength of the inspection system lies in the detection of topographical defects both on artificial edges and on veneered or wood edges. For this purpose, directional line lasers are used in addition to a proven incident light method.

Defect detection

Your production efficiently designed

The ColourBrain® ReworkStation is the cornerstone of an efficient batch-1 manufacturing. After scanning, all inspected components are provided with a barcode and the underlying defect logs are stored in a Q-Live® database. Defective components are ejected at a defined location by means of I/O signals and the defects are interrogated using the barcode. The quality responsible is now directly shown on the user interface the defect type and the position. A quick assessment of whether reworking is possible or must be directly re-produced can be done. A merger of several production lines in one rework station is possible.
Process Security
  • The direct and immediate intervention in the production allows for the rapid and efficient reduction of residues and accelerates your supply chain.
Process Optimization
  • The surface & edge inspection guides you in optimizing your production. The ColourBrain® ReworkStation is a helpful extension to optimize your batch-1 production.
