smartWLI Cylinderinspector3D

smartWLI Cylinderinspector3D to measure cylinder bores

The smartWLI Cylinderinspector3d is a measuring system for roughness measurements in cylinder bores of engine blocks. Available in various and customized configuration specific GBS programmed plugins allows the extension of the standard evaluation software MountainsMap to check honing structures and pores on the cylinder wall.

Using coherence scanning (white-light) interferometry to measure roughness and micro geometries

Coherence scanning (white-light) interferometry provide a much higher resolution than competitive optical 3d measuring principles as confocal microscopy, focus variation, chromatic confocal sensors, fringe projection or laser triangulation sensors. As microscopical optical measuring principle the GBScanner can be configurated using interference objectives with magnification from 2.5x up to 115x. Structures starting from lateral seize of app. 0.3 µm can be resolved. The upper limit is several mm² for single scans and several cm² for stitched areas.


Advantages of smartWLI sensors and optical profilers compared to other coherence scanning (white-light) interferometer

High speed cameras combined with massive parallel data processing allows to accelerate the data acquisition and evaluation processes and make the systems robust and less sensitive against vibrations. The acceleration enables data acquisition and stitching of several 100 single scans with typical cycle times of 1…3 seconds per single scan. The data processing including contrast enhancement, model-based signal correction and data quality surveillance enables to pick up weak signals on high sloped areas.
