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.

The system above shows a high resolution line scan solution that inspects plastic sheets placed into the holding fixture. This system was designed to test plastic sheets for gels.   Gel counting is a common requirement for plastic film web and sheet producers. ImageFlow can be used not only to detect any number of defects but to count gels. A square area may be set and if exceeded an alarm triggered. Classes of defects may be defined and parameters for each class decided. Those classes can then be added to a density analysis to count occurrences in a fixed area or a moving window for web and sheet inspection.
