The company is at LIGNA 2019 to unveil its innovative inspection system - ColourBrain Furniture 4.0.
According to Baumer Inspection, ColourBrain Furniture 4.0 is a technological trailblazer when it comes to the double-sided inspection of film-coated, melamine-coated and lacquered furniture panels. It can accurately detect the smallest of surface defects - such as bubbles, dents, fine scratches and shiny spots - whether diagonal to or across the feed direction. A drilled hole monitoring option can also be used to make sure holes have been drilled properly and check for profile deviations in pre-milled grooves. ColourBrain Furniture 4.0 is easy to maintain and boasts compact dimensions that minimize the amount of space needed in the feed direction. What’s more, its modular design means it can be easily adapted to suit a variety of customer needs. For instance, this system can be used for error detection and process optimization both in series production and for batch sizes of just one.
