Vision systems used to improve a technical composite manufacturing process

Laboratory system to analyse plastic sheets for gels and carbons

US based manufacturer of technical composite materials required a system to verify the purity of its pellet production process. OneBoxVision built a system that could be used in the laboratory.  SheetFlow  was used to perform gel counting so as to measure the component quality of an advanced composite process. OneBoxVision designed the complete apparatus to secure the sample being inspected which includes a linear slide so as to automate the scanning process.  The project was build and delivered as a complete unit to the client, with calibration and test certification.
