Using scanners as measurement and quality check devices

Quality management is a difficult thing to do. The more often you check your quality on a single item during the production, the more expensive it gets. Wherever optical checks are used for quality control, you can use a robot and a scanner to do at least some of the basic inspections for you. Scanners come with a calibrated light source that works independent of the surrounding light. Using SilverFast, scanners can be color-calibrated to gain even more reliability for color checks. Scanners are low cost, yet precise enough for a quick check at a lot of production stages, allowing you to add more quality check points and to gain a higher level of quality in an efficient way.

Scanner hardware and SilverFast software already offer solutions for many areas of application:
