Valve Seat Inspection

Unique challenges exist regarding the inspection of high precision, high volume parts. Valve seats are mass produced and require high precision as well as free of visual defects such as porosity, cracks and other surface defects. The Gi-100DT combines precision, visual defect detection capability with high speed, gentle part handling. This combination has made Gi the preferred inspection system supplier to the major producers of valve seats.

Valve Spring Retainer Inspection

Valve Spring Retainers (VSR’s) are produced in high volumes and have very special inspection requirements. Cracks and ID measurements pose the largest challenges to manufacturers. Gi’s proprietary software and sensors make for easy set-up and defect  detection at speeds necessary to keep up with production (300+ parts per minute). The Gi-100DT is the #1 solution for corresponding VSR inspection requirements.

Piston Ring Inspection

Integrating inspection cells for Piston Rings is no longer a challenge. The Gi-100DT fits seamlessly with it’s versatile top/bottom inspection ring design. Sensors are positioned above & below a glass dial plate for complete surface inspection. Specialty lenses provide 360 ID and OD surface control as precision vision and laser topography combine to measure all pertinent features required for this high-speed inspection application.

Valve Guide Inspection

The Gi-360T-SD utilizes gravity to transport parts through a series of precision laser and machine vision sensors. Valve guides slide on a v-shaped track after two cameras measure and inspect the two faces for both dimensional features like ID, concentricity and visual surface damage. Heat-treatment verification is completed with adjustable frequency eddy-current, while all profile dimensions are measured to print specifications with a series of lasers that produce 3D full 360 inspection data. Last a series of cameras positioned around detect small visual defects all at rates of 300 per minute.

Engine Valve Inspection

VisionLab can be set-up as a manual or fully automatic gauging station. Engine valves rotate on the glass stage and measured to print specifications as well as analyzed for complete surface control with cameras from the top, bottom and side. With sub-micron accuracy and repeatability plus Gi’s patented illumination sequencing process, VisionLab is the ultimate engine valve gauging and inspection system.
