STV develops and produces systems for metal surface and contour inspection. The cameras are integrated in complete modules, for device sizes up to 100 mm. The components are processed in automatic handlers, and exposed to the camera unit. The system can measure various dimensional parameters, e.g. diameters, hole positions and sizes, orientation in backlight illumination. Also the system executes surface inspection on noisy surfaces, e.g. sanded copper or manganin, from stamped material or electric welding.
