Together with Maier S. Coop and the ROBOTT-NET partners Tecnalia and The Manufacturing Technology Centre, Automatismos Maser is working on the pilot project Cromatek.
The manufacturing sector of chromed parts has very high quality requirements. In the automotive sector this means that 100% of chromed parts are inspected. At the moment, there are no automated systems that can detect the types of defects that appear in these types of surfaces.
This task is done manually by human operators with the problems associated as quantification, production monitoring and subjectivity in the analysis of the defect.
This pilot project is an automatic control system for bright surface coating or finishing pieces as chromed coating. The system will make the inspection during the manufacturing process based on machine vision and collaborative robotics.
