Weld Seam AOI Inspection for Axle Components

Flawless Axles Thanks to Automated Weld Seam Inspection

Greater Production Safety in Axle Manufacturing: Axle beams and transverse control arms are essential elements of a safe chassis sub frame. Their quality is critical to the long-term safety of vehicle occupants. Automatic weld seam inspection identifies every weld seam defect. As a result, only defect-free axle components reach further processing stages.

Finding Defects Beats Processing Them: The VIRO WSI weld seam inspection solution detects the smallest defects – immediately after welding. This prevents defective axle components from being sent for further processing, which in turn eliminates unnecessary costs and use of materials. Serial defects are also detected at an early stage and defect accumulation is prevented by swift intervention in the manufacturing process.

100% INLINE INSPECTION, Automated Inspection Takes a Closer Look: Today’s cutting-edge technology uses automated welding. Quality is enhanced even further when the inspection of weld seams is also automated. That’s because automated weld seam inspection is always reliable, regardless of its environment. In addition, it automatically documents product quality.

Efficient Rework: Inspection data is clearly presented to the relevant production line operatives at interactive visualization stations. As a result, manual rework stations can be integrated into the process. The integration of automated rework is also possible. VIRO WSI assigns defective components to rewelding and, thanks to specially developed software algorithms, passes on the data to ensure precise rework.
