Prior to further processing, the shell surface is supposed to be checked for the correct distance in partially processed pistons, and the moulded retainers for the piston ring checked that the position is correct.
The test station is supposed to be integrated into the available production line.
Following production, the processed surfaces are supposed to be checked on the intermediate shafts for surface defects such as impact marks, score marks and "chatter marks", as well for cracks and faulty bores.
Faulty intermediate shafts are supposed to be rejected for a manual test.
Following the cleaning process, 26 processed flats on the cross-pieces are supposed to be checked, and the associated bore walls checked for pores and blowholes.
The components are guided with a handling robot and deposited onto an OK or NOK conveyor in accordance with the overall result.
The faulty areas are displayed on a monitor.
Prior to the automatic prepacking process by a robot, the two processed flats on the main bore are supposed to be checked on the upper and lower side, and the bore wall checked for pores and blowholes.
Due to reasons concerning the cycle time, the wheel mounts are not allowed to be removed from the workpiece carrier for test purposes.
Following production, the positive pole area (Pip area) on AAA battery sleeves is supposed to be checked for surface defects, and the edge of the negative pole (Flair area) for roundness and defects (break-outs).
The check itself and the grading between OK/not OK is carried out inside a production cycle of 15 parts per second.
After the pipes have been processed, the pipe ends are supposed to be checked for flawed areas.
The following defects are supposed to be detected in the process: Incorrectly chamfered pipe ends, impact marks and burrs.
The test is supposed to be integrated into the existing system and faulty pipes removed.
