Surface inspection is now standard on plastic extrusion lines

Inspection is now standard in the plastic industry!

The modern extrusion and converting/laminating lines now use surface inspection systems as standard. Your customers demand 100% quality control.  All plastic film include some level of contaminates, arising from the production process or due to the nature of Polymers. Therefore gels are only a question of resolution. Extrusion and converting lines classify many defect types such as gels, black specs, fish eyes, holes, oil stains, insects, scratches, coating voids, air bubbles etc. These all originate from different issues but most all can have an impact on the further processing.

Inspection 4.0 for plastic film extruders

ASIX - Inspection 4.0 for plastic film

Industry 4.0 requirements are now a staple element of modern industrial automation solutions.For inspection systems this translated into the ability to conform to automation standards and integrate with historians while supplying real time data for analytics. To this end we have developed a complete video data archival capability that conforms to ISA 95 automation standards.

Inspection 4.0 for the converting industry

Inspection 4.0 for converters

The converting factory normally starts with a substrate. This can be paper , film, foil or sometimes a non-woven. More often than not it’s plastic film. Our  ASIX technology is designed to inspect rolls or sheets of plastic. Usually a converter will pass the substrate through some other value added process, whether it’s printing, laminating, perforation or pouching. Sometimes it can be all of them.
