Light reflection can pose significant challenges for 3D materials inspection, especially when the materials require fast, highly accurate checking with very short cycle times. Shiny or reflective surfaces can create significant inconsistencies in the data, corrupting the integrity of the result. Consequently, it is critical that the many different and complicated adverse effects of reflections are successfully identified and filtered.

SmartRay, manufacturers of the ECCO 3D image sensors, discuss the issues and how to overcome.
