Baumer celebrates with ColourBrain® RawBoard 4.0 its premiere in the inspection of raw panels and shows with ColourBrain® Furniture 4.0 pioneering innovations in the quality inspection of furniture parts. Further exciting innovations will be presented in the inspection of furniture edges, the monitoring of single-pass digital printing as well as the rework station for the batch-1 production lines.
ColourBrain® RawBoard 4.0 – New Benchmarks in the Raw Panel Inspection
With the inspection system ColourBrain® RawBoard 4.0, Baumer sets new standards in the double-sided inspection of chipboards and MDF/HDF boards. Typical process errors such as grinding defects, damage to the surface and in the edge area as well as contamination caused by oil, water or dust spots are stably identified. Using standardized interfaces, the ColourBrain® RawBoard 4.0 inspection system can be easily and quickly integrated into customary line controls.
ColourBrain® Furniture 4.0 – Technologically Leading in Furniture Inspection
The inspection system ColourBrain® Furniture 4.0 is the technology leader in the double-sided inspection of foil-coated, melamine-coated and lacquered furniture panels. The outcome are impressive inspection results: Surface defects such as bubbles, dents, fine scratches or shiny spots are precisely recognized in their smallest size – whether diagonally or transversely to the feed direction.
ColourBrain® Edge 3D – Edge Inspection Reconsidered
At Ligna 2019 Baumer presented a revised system for the inspection of glued and lasered edge bands on furniture parts. The ColourBrain® Edge 3D system can be used in both series production and batch-1 production for defect detection and process optimization, complementing the ColourBrain® Furniture 4.0 system in a perfect way.
ColourBrain® DigitalPrint 4.0 – Innovative DoD-Inspection in Real Time
The ColourBrain® DigitalPrint 4.0 inspection system is used in a wide variety of industries – applications include single-pass printing on flooring planks, packaging, textiles and film with variable motifs and batch sizes. Defects such as head failures, nozzle defects, colour inhomogeneity, stains, and substrate defects are reliably detected, classified, and assigned to the cause in the process.
ColourBrain® ReworkStation – Batch-1 Production Efficiently Designed
The ColourBrain® Rework Station is the cornerstone of an efficient Batch-1 manufacturing. After scanning, all inspected components are provided with a barcode and the underlying defect logs are stored in a Q- Live® database. Defective components are ejected at a defined location by means of I/O signals and the defects are interrogated using the barcode.
