The Gasket Inspection System (GIS) automates the inspection of gaskets for defects including excess flash, blisters, tears and under cure. The GIS quantifies the magnitude of gasket flaws in each part in less than 2 seconds while each gasket is rotated and compressed. The system classifies each part as good or defective and automatically diverts non-conforming gaskets while applying a paint mark to good pieces prior to conveying them out of the system (see the video page of our website).
The program has a graphical user interface which is designed to be intuitive to use. The software provides prompts and guidance through the use of pop-up dialogs and tool-tip messages.
