The balloon visual inspection system has enhanced pneumatic rotary air chucks for quick and easy loading and unloading of balloons and a tight, reliable seal. The new air chucks reduce cycle time inspection processing. Additional upgrades include higher pressure capability for pressures up to 13 atmospheres along with significantly improved pressure accuracy. New digital pressure output gauge provides improved pressure accuracy reliability.
A newly added feature to the balloon visual inspection system is an ionizing knife that blows static free air while rotating the balloon under pressure before each inspection process. The ionizing knife reduces particles thereby reducing potential false-negative testing results. The detailed visual reports provide operators with high resolution and magnified images to take the guesswork out of pass/fail inspections. The balloon visual inspection system can provide accurate measurements and images to confirm pass or fail inspections potentially increasing manufacturing yields. Reports are all traceable to the production lot and the inspector.
