Inspecting Metal Gas Cylinder Forming

Find out how ECCO 3D sensors ensure production quality in sheet metal forming. Sergio Badocco – Owner of MDA is excited: “Before the implementation of the system, a manual measurement was made on random samples using a jig tool, which took at least two minutes to check the whole surface. With the SmartRay sensor it takes 5 seconds to automatically check the surface, resulting in 96% of time saved for a single check. In addition it is now possible to perform the inspection on 100% of production”. Get the full application story here: https://3d.smartray.com/metal-sheet-forming-inspection-application/
