The Challenge of Inspecting Sealed Car Lights
The production of car lights requires the use of advanced technologies, such as laser welding, to ensure that the final product is of high quality. However, the sealing process poses a challenge to quality control. Due to the welding of the front and back covers, it is difficult to inspect the inside of the lights. Without reopening the light unit, the only access point is through a small hole in the plastic, which makes it nearly impossible to use any other tool for inspection than a videoscope.
The X2000-HD Industrial Videoscope is an ideal solution for this application. Its 2.8mm probe has a very small bending radius, making it easy to navigate through even the smallest hole. Moreover, the X2000-HD Videoscope is equipped with a joystick for controlling the probe. Since the insertion probes are mechanically wired the operator can experience an immediate movement of the probe. This eliminates any delay often experienced with videoscopes using servo motors for articulation.
The X2000-HD Videoscope offers advanced image functions that make the inspection of car lights an easy and efficient process. With the ability to sharpen images and adjust manual and auto white balance, the X2000-HD allows for clear and accurate inspection of the lights. It also offers a manual exposure feature, zoom functions, and other features that make inspection easier and more effective.
Moreover, the X2000-HD Videoscope has a file management system that allows for easy organization of images and videos. The system also allows for the addition of comments and other information to images and videos. That makes it much easier to keep track of the inspection process.
Challenges of this Inspection
One of the challenges of inspecting car lights after laser welding is ensuring that the cables and connectors are properly connected. Using the X2000-HD Videoscope, it is possible to inspect these connections, ensuring that they are correctly positioned and functioning properly. This feature is critical, as any issues with the cables or connectors can cause malfunctioning of the lights.
In addition, there are several common flaws to look out for when inspecting car lights. These include condensation buildup inside the lights, cracks or damage to the covers or lenses, and issues with the wiring or connectors. By using the X2000-HD Videoscope, it is possible to easily identify these flaws and correct them before the lights are installed in the car.
The X2000-HD Videoscope is not only efficient but also lightweight and easy to carry around. With a neck strap, the operator can move around the car and inspect the lights without any inconvenience. This makes the inspection process faster and more convenient.
Efficiently Overcoming Inspection Challenges with the X2000-HD
In conclusion, the X2000-HD Industrial Videoscope is an ideal solution for car light inspections after laser welding. It offers advanced image functions, and easy organization, and allows for the addition of comments and other information to images and videos. Its joystick offers direct feedback to the operator, eliminating delays often experienced with servo motors. The X2000-HD Videoscope is a powerful tool for identifying common flaws in car lights, ensuring that they function properly and efficiently.
