Surface inspection of complex metallic components


  • Fully automated 100% surface inspection of complex metallic components with a wide range of parts
  • Highly flexible handling and automation approach
  • Possibility to use the inspection data for the purposes of Industry 4.0 or beyond quality assurance: documentation, monitoring, process optimization, production planning


  • Smart Surface Inspection: Using trevista® in combination with innovative AI technology 

Customer Benefits

Superior image quality thanks to patented trevista® method

  • Thanks to innovative shape-from-shading technology, trevista® images provide accurate information about surface structures and brightness.
  • trevista® domes can be flexibly positioned with regard to the distance, height, and rotational position of the inspection parts and can therefore be adapted to different types of components.
  • Universal inspection system enables comprehensive surface testing even with complex surface geometry, e.g. for gears (tooth flanks, internal toothing, helical toothing) 

Reliable error detection through Deep Learning

  • Neural networks can be used particularly well when a classical algorithm is difficult to find, e.g. with complex part geometry or high variance of surface properties (such as roughness).
  • By training a neural network, the inspection task can be adaptively adjusted to the current production situation at any time.

Variety of variants

  • Different component types can be taught in quickly.
  • Inspection parameters can be easily and quickly transferred to new part variants.
