The need for quality control has lead to the implementation of automatic surface inspection systems, which have improved on-line monitoring of surface quality. Enamelled copper wire, cable and optical fiber are three examples where surface quality is very important. An extensive literature review conducted by the authors, has shown that with the current state of technology, there is much room for improvement in the field of non-destructive defect detection for enamelled copper wire. In this paper, the authors describe an IR light based surface inspection system which has been developed for non-destructive defect detection on cables, optical fiber and specifically on enamelled copper wire. Finally, results from extensive trials at an enamelled copper wire manufacturing company are presented and compared to a simulation, of the defect detection head.
