Cylinder Inner Wall Inspection

CylinderInspector is an all-optical, non-contact inspection and measurement tool designed to inspect cylinder walls. It enables perfect optical inspection of honed surfaces in cast iron and aluminium, as well as the detailed analysis of composition and distribution of silicon crystals in aluminium. With darkfield and brightfield multi wavelength LED illumination, CylinderInspector is perfectly suited to imaging every type of honed cylinder surface - particularly sputter and plasma deposited surfaces.

CylinderInspector has already gained its heritage as the inspection instrument of choice amongst many automobile and engine manufactures internationally.
