The importance and usefulnes of optical sensors in industrial automation and process control is widespread. Nowadays there is an increasing demand for sensors able to control the quality of processes, parts and materials with high reliability and sensitivity, fast response, low invasivity.
LiSA Light Surface Analyzer belongs to this class of sensors. Developed by HEOS photonics for quality control in automotive industry, it is a reflectometric sensor able to detect surface defects in metal and plastic parts.
LiSA main features are:
spatial resolution ~100 μm;
fast scan of large surfaces;
no-contact measurements (working distance ~cm);
fiber optics implementation for easy inspection of cavities and complex topographies;
even working on low reflectivity surfaces.
