Dakota 3D

DAKOTA inspection system, developed by the company GIPS vision, has been created for foam plants and most specifically for those manufacturing automotive seating. It can inspect several types of components (or inserts) inside of a mold before foam injection. It uses two 3D profile cameras to inspect both the tank or bowl and the lid directly on line, on-the-fly.

The three major advantages of the Dakota system are as follows:

The three major advantages of the Dakota system are as follows:

  • Avoidance of customer complains for incomplete products.
  • Reduction of material loss (foam injection only when needed).
  • Monitoring the damage, wear or condition of the mold.
