Radix Inc. releases vision application for machined part quality

POSTED 09/11/2018

Inventors Nick, Mark & Ahmad of the first patented product by RadixRadix Inc. is pleased to announce that they have released a vision application designed specifically to detect small metal fragments remaining inside the complex surface channels on machined parts. They have also been granted a patent on this innovative application from the US Patent & Trademark Office.

This infrared vision application detects metal chips as small as 2.5 mm inside the surface channels of complex machined parts, like a valve body. With real-time feedback to the operator, this stand-alone application ensures quality machined parts are leaving the factory floor free of metal fragments.
