The use of non-destructive control means, during the manufacture of photovoltaic components, ensures their structural properties. Since they are very delicate to handle, an automatic process developed by Matlab software is applied with image processing instead of a visual examination by human operators during the inspection stages. The acquired findings for the surface control process allow for the fast, easy identification and location of the failures, which especially reduce the cost and time of the photovoltaic panels manufacture.
