Industrial Maintenance Inspection

Automated industrial maintenance inspection is about looking for the details that matter across a broad range of industrial equipment and machinery. This type of inspection has a demand for reliable capture of high-resolution 3D point clouds and very high trueness performance in challenging industrial settings. Inspection can be for cracks, wear and tear, and damage, or looking for the presence, or absence of important elements related to operation and safety. The Zivid Two 3D industrial color camera is ideally suited to maintenance inspection with its robot-mounted ability to inspect very fine details, measure depth and height, and deliver full-color points clouds all in a rugged, truly industrial 3D camera.

Challenges & Solutions

Industrial maintenance inspection takes place in factories, processing plants and other challenging situations. The items under inspection often cannot be moved or placed into ‘better positions’ for 3D visual inspection. To be successful involves robot mobility and 3D vision mobility with a robot-mounted 3D camera. The Zivid Two industrial color 3D camera is a true camera for operation on the robot, delivering consistently high-quality results in challenging and tough conditions.

Increased precision and reliability with high-quality 3D vision

Robotic inspection demands a highly accurate vision system to measure target objects accurately and consistently. Whether it's profiling of wheels, checking the quality of a weld seam or ensuring fastening bolts are in the correct position, your reputation depends on the robot's ability to inspect and see the details, with sub-millimeter level of high confidence, every time.

Zivid Two’s outstanding accuracy and point precision of 55 µm and a best-in-class trueness error of < 0.2% mean it will capture the details you are looking for. 

  • Autonomous and precise defect detections
  • Fine manipulation of tiny objects in cluttered environments
  • Estimation and verification of product dimensions and profiles

Feel the advantage of the robot-mounted 3D vision inspection

Robotic inspection allows your robot to perform inspection and maintenance tasks in confined or dangerous working environments with remote access. It requires the flexibility and adaptability of humans, coupled with the abilities and reliability of technology.

Zivid robot-mounted color 3D cameras are designed specifically to rise to this challenge and excel. Zivid Two works for both stationery and robot mounting, enhancing point cloud quality with flexible capturing position.  

  • Remote and confined space access 
  • Compact, lightweight, and fast 3D camera without reducing maneuverability or the robot payload
  • Inspection from multiple angles and positions, avoiding blind spots, occlusion, and point cloud artifacts

Inspect anything, anywhere with full RGB colors

3D color vision offers a number of benefits over traditional 2D or monochrome 3D data for inspection applications, including increased accuracy, coverage, and cycle time. The full-color point cloud is significantly valuable when handling a variety of objects in a production line or an assembly workstation. 

Zivid 3D cameras provide a full HD color point cloud with three-dimensional image processing. It allows your robot to fulfill inspection tasks across the full spectrum of demands, even for the most challenging small parts with similar shapes. 

  • Non-laser based white light for broad material coverage and native color capabilities
  • Capture speeds ~100 ms for high dynamic range scenes such as shiny and reflective
  • Plastic, ceramic, metal, cardboard, wood, colored, textured, light, dark and absorptive
