Vision systems specialist Vitronic reports outstanding success from Automatica 2010, which took place earlier this month in Munich, Germany. The company demonstrated its renowned VIROwsi weld seam inspection system with a new compact sensor head. It proved a hit with show visitors, who inundated Vitronic’s engineers with enquiries.

Automatica is an international trade fair in automation and mechatronics. A key event for manufacturers and buyers alike, it attracts hundreds of exhibiting companies that offer a vast range of products. Nearly 31,000 trade visitors from 113 countries attended Automatica this year.

Poorly welded components break, causing products to fail. This can have disastrous, even fatal consequences for vehicles. Mounted on a robotic arm, VIROwsi inspects welded joints at high speed using laser triangulation, cameras, and 3D imaging technology. It detects flaws such as profile variations and pores before instructing a robotic burner to rework, repair or optimise seams if necessary.

By ensuring the strength and integrity of welded joints, VIROwsi minimises the chances of components breaking and products failing. It has become an essential safety checking system in the automotive industry. VIROwsi’s new compact sensor allows it to inspect seams in previously inaccessible component areas, and on highly reflective materials like aluminium.

The system was of enormous interest to Automatica 2010’s visitors. “VIROwsi is an exceptional device that saves companies a lot of time and money” remarks Malcolm Smith, Vitronic’s UK Sales Manager. “It helps ensure finished products are safe and fit for use, so I think its attention at the exhibition was fully justified.”

He continues; “Automatica 2010 was a big success for us. We spread the Vitronic word to potential customers and left with a large number of quality leads, which we plan to convert into firm orders over the coming weeks! It was also interesting to learn more about other company’s developments – 2010 is shaping up to be an exciting year for industrial robotics!”

Malcolm Smith is the UK Sales Manager at Vitronic. Vitronic is a leading supplier of machine vision systems. A global company, it provides advanced technological solutions to a broad range of markets, such as logistics, traffic control, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and industrial robotics.
