Millimetric Precision in 3D Robotic Leak Testing

With the new I-Guide3D 350 scanner 

Robotic leak detection

Millimetric precision is crucial in fully automated leak test systems. On a refrigerator or heat pump production line for example, the position of all inspection points must be determined with millimetric accuracy. Manufacturing tolerances of +/- 1 cm for the position of solder joints have long been a challenge of robotic leak testing.  

INFICON has developed the first fully automated 3D robotic leak testing system for your end-of-line inspection. The system includes the new I-Guide3D 350, an intelligent 3D sensor which helps to move the robot arm to the next inspection point, with millimeter precision, always along the shortest and fastest path. As a result, this 3D robotic leak testing system can meet the highest accuracy requirements of HVAC/R industry.

The 3D image recognition system from INFICON uses structured light by LED or laser. The structured light makes the scanner independent of brightness fluctuations in the ambient light. A software converts the 3D camera’s point cloud into XYZ coordinates so that it can control the robot arm optimally and without collisions.
