The system is foreseen for outer diameters from 0.5mm to 60mm and can be easily integrated into existing production lines without having to modify them. When a wire or cable is passing through, the system captures small surface defects such as scratches, cracks, pores and notches, even those not visible to the human eye, as well as contaminations, registers their size, shape, position and number and displays these defects simultaneously on a screen. The line operator recognizes when tolerance limits are exceeded and can take corrective actions in the production process. The surface inspection system can be combined with other systems such as eddy current testing, geometry measuring and marking devices. Visitors by appointment can have their own wires or cables tested.
