Sightia Surface Evaluation

Sightia™ is the brand name of the technology for surface evaluation after the blasting and peening processes. It was developed by Sinto, delivering surface evaluation and treatment as a total package. This technology is applicable to various industries, from component parts for automotive, aircraft, and construction machinery to springs, dies, tools, etc.

You can control the process using stress values on each part!

surface evaluation process

Provides increased reliability and quality assurance of the shot peening process by integrating a  device into the shot peening process and inspecting all products in-line

Sightia™ series offers total support for surface evaluation in all industries where high durability is required. This technology is applicable to various industries, from component parts for automotive, aircraft, and construction machinery to springs, dies, and tools.

Sightia Surface Evaluation in a manufacturing line

Sinto offers two different instruments for surface evaluation: the ECNI-1 and PSMX-II.

  • ECNI-1: For detecting variation in machining and non-destructive peening inspection. Inspects peening quality without causing damage by scanning post-peening parts. Assures to quality assurance of treated products and prevents distribution of defective products.
  • PSMX-II: For measuring surface residual stress by X-ray diffraction. PSMX-II is an in-line stress measurement device. Incorporating in a single piece process flow achieves inspection of surface residual stresses of all products within cycle time.

PSMX-II

PSMX-II is an in-line stress measurement device. Incorporating in a single piece process flow achieves inspection of surface residual stresses of all products within cycle time.

  • Fastest X-ray diffraction residual stress measurement device on the market
  • High-speed stress measurement for possible in-line integration, and compact size.
  • Measure the residual stress on the surface of parts, after they have been peened, in just 10 seconds
  • It is possible to inspect in-line by integrating the technology into existing processes
  • Highly accurate and easy to use
  • Applicable to various industries: gears, automotive, aerospace, etc.
  • Individually measures each product’s surface residual stress without destroying. Instead of quality control by confirming process capacity through arc height and coverage, or stress measurement by inspection through sampling and breaking products, it inspects the surface residual stress of all products by X-ray.
  • Possible to change the settings to match your products. Optimal measurement performed based on preset parameters including measured positions and locations as well as cycle time.

ECNI-I

Inspects peening quality without causing damage by scanning post-peening parts. Assures to quality assurance of treated products and prevents distribution of defective products.

  • Safe, easy, fast and non-destructive inspection of the entire peened surface
  • Uses an eddy current probe to test parts prior to peening to make sure parts are free of defects
  • Real-time, in-line inspection device that can be used on parts with an OD between 20-250mm and a width of 20-60mm
  • Pass/fail result can be achieved within 3 seconds
  • It is possible to inspect in-line by integrating the technology into existing processes
