Milled Surface Inspection

Easily Distinguishes Milling Marks from Surface Defects

Inspecting milled surfaces presents a critical quality control challenge in manufacturing. The intricacies of this process make it challenging to ensure precision and adherence to specifications.

Enhancing Inspection precision with Multi-Layer Analysis

This technique involves capturing multiple layers of images of milled components from various angles and lighting conditions. Each layer provides a distinct perspective of the part's surface. These images are then subjected to in-depth analysis, including 2D and 3D examination.


Creates raw imput images with different lighting settings.


Enhances the quality of input images to remove glare and light differences


Gains a map of the surface structure


Re-builds the surface of your part in 3D to precisely evaluate the imperfections.

Milled Surface Defect Detention: Possibilities and Process

Surface Rougness

Uneven or roug surface finish after milling.

Chatter Marks

Periodic patterns of grooves on the milled surface due to vibration or tool instability.

Tool Marks

Marks left by the milling tool on the surface.


Wavy or scalloped surface texture.

Edge Burns

Small metal flakes or protrusions along the milled edge.


Over-miling causing indetations or recesses in the workpiece.

Milling marks often exhibit intricate patterns that may resemble surface irregularities, making it difficult to distinguish them from actual defects. It is essential to capture high-resolution images of the components, utilizing proper lighting, creating multiple layers of photos, and subjecting them to 2D and 3D analysis. 

This approach distinguishes machining marks from defects like dents, scratches, edge burrs, and undercuts by varying lighting and creating a 3D surface representation for meticulous scrutiny.

This advanced analysis helps ensure that genuine defects are accurately identified, while false alarms stemming from machining marks are minimized, contributing to a more reliable and efficient quality control process in manufacturing. 

Infuence of the Process

Multi-layer analysis enables a comprehensive understanding of the part's geometry, aiding in the accurate identification of defects and their precise location on the component.

This contributes to a more reliable and efficient quality control process in manufacturing, ensuring that only parts meeting stringent quality standards are delivered to customers.
