Surface Inspection

The contactless surface inspection has all but revolutionized quality assurance in production processes in recent years. Technologically advanced sensors and sophisticated evaluation strategies enable both the realization of simple inspection tasks and the 100% inspection of demanding functional parts for defects in the µm range.

As a pioneer on the field of surface inspection, it is our goal to find the economically and technologically perfect solution based on the requirements of the customer. Beside experience and know-how, finding the best solution also requires access to state-of-the-art products. We put a strategic focus on surface inspection with our innovative hardware and software products. Furthermore, we also offer our customers the chance to use insights from inspection for the optimization of the upstream production process.

Whether it's the inspection of moving continuous material, the surface inspection of more than 300 components per minute on a glass rotary plate, or the inspection of different areas at a motor block by a robot – SAC inspection systems are perfectly tailored to your production and handling process.

We combine our own high-tech products with high-quality third-party components into high-tech solutions that give our customers a decisive lead over the competition.
