Project Objectives

The technical objectives are:

Objective 1:

To create a digital radiography inspection technique able to inspect PM/MIM parts at a rate of 1 second per part. This is considerably faster than any current manual/part manual inspection process.

Objective 2:

Develop suitable image algorithms for the detection of defects in PM/MIM components. The technique development work will include generation of pre-processing image enhancement algorithms to compensate for variable PM component placement on the conveyor as well as noise removal from the acquired radiograph images.

Objective 3:

To enable design towards integration for in-situ real time inspection.
