Today, production quality assurance often requires costly visual inspections or even wasteful destructive tests. inpro has developed innovative methods and technologies for structural testing, which, for example, allow the non-destructive, automated testing of joint quality or functional surfaces, and which can be safely implemented in serial production.

The use of thermography has been brought forward significantly through developments in the field of stimulation techniques and signal processing. Moreover, thermography processes developed by inpro can reduce testing costs and considerably improve the quality of testing reports.

The so-called „shape from shading“ method was identified as particularly suitable for surface inspection. Nowadays, variants of this process engineering principle developed by inpro enable inline testing in serial production. In turn, this has allowed alternatives to costly and error-prone visual inspections for many applications to be developed.

„Based on a pragmatic approach with testing and simulation, inpro has made significant contributions to automated material and joint testing in the body shop and component production.“
