Visual and automated inspection of press tool that are used in the production of tablets is a very difficult task because of the complexity of structure and the strongly reflecting surface of the stamps and dies. Yet, these tools are subject to a continous quality control due to the critically of the production task and strict safety guidelines. Using a measuring system that evaluates such complex equipment is required in this case.
Confocal Sensor confocalDT 2451 along with an optical micrometer optoCONTROL 2600 is used to get highly precise measurement results. This measuring system is equipped with a USB interface and a special software for the geometric and visual inspection of tools. The system provides dimensions of stamps and dies such as diameter, total length, main axis, etc with its synchronised measurement and movement technique.
