Automatic, non-contact measurement at the line: The wave-scan 3 ROBOTIC allows automated appearance control as it is mounted on a robotic arm. The robotic system ensures measurement on the same areas and representative data for statistical process control.

  • The New Generation: State-of-the-art chip technology with high speed computing power
  • New LAN interface - today´s industry standard
  • New, flexible detachable mount - compatible to predecessor
  • New smart-robotic: Interface software with integration of previous bykLINK functions and minimum migration effort
  • For flat and curved surfaces (radius > 50 cm)
  • Small and light weight sensor
  • Classical LW, SW and customer specific scales
  • Structure spectrum to analyze appearance changes for optimization
  • Dullness and DOI measurement independent of the paint system
  • smart-chart software for data analysis and documentation

Appearance of a Class A Surface Orange Peel and Brilliance

Color and appearance are essential quality parameters of coatings. Especially the paint finish of an automobile is expected to be brilliant, smooth and uniform. The visual perception is depending on the observer, illumination and viewing conditions as well as on material and product properties. In order to measure waviness objectively instrumental measurement is performed with the wave-scan. The following article reviews visual perception of waviness and brilliance and explains the measurement principle of the wave-scan. Different practical examples are showing possibilities of data interpretation.
