Test stations for the optical inspection of stamped parts


Use of our double track test stations

The demands for efficiency and cost structure in stamping production have grown rapidly. Manufacturers of stamped parts need competitive solutions that enable zero-defect production despite increasing process complexity.

PSS-40 test stations are an innovative leap from the traditional random test of stamped parts, to the fully automated in-line, inspection, measurement and sorting of stamped production parts.

Real-time delivery and processing of each manufactured part’s inspection data, from the first punching stroke onwards, allows shorter and more efficient changeover processes, high stamping line utilization, and the lowest possible consumption of resources. For our customers, this means improved quality at lower costs.

Our latest test station for punch strips of the PSS-40 series

The test and sorting station PSS-40 with laser cutting / laser welding is a further development of our standard test station PSS-40, which is already established on the market. Our product enhancement replaces the manual or semi-automatic process of mechanical cutting and subsequent joining with a fully automated laser cutting and welding process.

Benefits at a glance

  • Uninterrupted production of stamped strips with 100% quality
  • No press stops for sporadic missing parts, waste, welding of raw material
  • Space-saving stamping line configuration, no additional strip welding device
  • Fully automated production, saves resources and time

Loose parts - checking and sorting

In-Die modules for testing

Applications for 100% inspection of stamped parts directly in the tool are particularly useful if the parts have already been separated in the tool.

Advantages of our In-Die modules

  • High-precision measurement, weld spot inspection, surface testing
  • Considerable cost reduction compared to "traditional" test technology
  • > 1800 stroke / min multiple falling
  • Space-saving, encapsulated 1-camera system (< 60 mm space requirement in running direction)
  • Image processing of the PSS-40
  • Use of several modules with corresponding installation space
  • Optional multiple cameras per module
  • Applications in reflected and transmitted light
  • SPS for controlling the separating station (optional)
