Development of Non-Contact Orange Peel Quality Monitor 930749

We have developed a new measurement apparatus designed to take orange-peel quality-assessment measurements of paint-finished surfaces on a non-contact basis. This apparatus was developed to determine the relationship between in-line spray-coating conditions and the resulting orange peel surface, and to optimally control/manage the conditions of our existing facilities to ensure the best possible coating results based on the obtained data. The apparatus has been implemented by adopting image analysis, which combines an optical system design based on human inspectors’ visual-checking conditions and a set of straightforward algorithms.
