Fraunhofer event forum “Understand and Experience Technology” (hall 6, stand 6110)

For the tenth time, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology and Automation (IPA) welcomes you to the event forum addressing this year’s issue of “Quality Over the Course of Time – a Look at the Last Decade and the Future of Quality Control” at booth 6110 in hall 6. The highly diverse presentation programme will provide you with the opportunity of gathering broad-based, comprehensive information about new, forward-looking techniques covering all aspects of this subject matter. Attention will be focussed on the various developments of the last 10 years and future requirements for quality control in the age of Industry 4.0. Speakers from industry and research will present exhibits geared specifically to their presentations at the forum booth. This offers you a direct transition from theory to practice.

Fraunhofer-Allianz Vision (booth 6302, hall 6)

The Fraunhofer Vision Alliance will present a selection of up-to-date measuring and test systems with image processing for quality assurance in production at Control 2017 in Stuttgart (booth 6302, hall 6).

Thematic Focal Point: Monitoring Throughout the Product Lifecycle with Image Processing

Production monitoring concepts play a significant role within the framework of intelligent production in the context of Industry 4.0. Systems for optical measuring and test technology, as well as industrial image processing, are indispensable as suppliers of information in this respect. As the sense organs of a consistently networked production system, so to speak, they make large volumes of material, product and process data available in real-time throughout all steps of the value creation process. Important controlled variables are thus acquired by means of monitoring during the product lifecycle in order to optimise manufacturing processes, organise work sequences effectively with minimal waste and reduce environmental impact.

  • Use of contactless measuring and test technology in close proximity to production makes it possible to detect quality deviations as soon as they occur, and thus to respond to changes before it’s too late. Product and process quality can be enhanced in this way, and manufacturing costs can be continuously reduced.
  • Beyond this, image processing systems are taking on process control tasks to an ever greater extent and, with the help of numerous individual queries, contribute to keeping manufacturing technologies under control, rendering them transparent and making them reliable. Monitoring of all steps which affect quality is thus made possible throughout the lifecycle of the respective products.
  • With the help of new multi-sensor technologies, complex measuring and test tasks can be implemented in a technically more robust, faster and simpler fashion. The spectral range of image generating sensors is expanding further and further, and the combination of various sensor types is becoming more and more diverse.

The expertise of the Fraunhofer Vision Institutes will be demonstrated at the Fraunhofer Vision booth at Control 2017 with regard to the issue of “Monitoring Throughout the Product Lifecycle with Image Processing” on the basis of several displays using several types of applications as examples.
