— Quality control of steel sheet for the purpose of improvement in product quality and maintaining competitive market is a matter of high importance. Surface defect detection devotes a high percentage of quality control to itself. In this paper a fast and precise solution using two-dimensional wavelet for detection of this type of defects is introduced. Precision and speed of this suggested approach was compared to the previous methods. The result show considerable improvement.
