Simple viewing camera added as key feature to ImageFlow

Low cost matrix camera added as integrated viewer on a printing press

Often an inspection systems resolution is perfect for automated feature detection, but an operator may need to see some items in more detail or have a different view. ImageFlow supports the integration of a simple matrix camera as a viewing option.

The example below shows how one was added to a printing press so operators could view tiny register marks in more detail.

Trend Graphs now standard in ImageFlow

Trend Graphs can be useful for process control

Trend Graphs in Imageflow allows real-time display of metrics that can be used to monitor a key measurement or quality index for a complete run. The graph below shows the web width and total number of defects plotted versus the machine direction of a job.

Advanced Label Inspection tools released

Printing labels is a demanding task. OneBoxVision has released a new tool simply called the Label Wizard. This tool contains label detection and die cut matrix inspection. Other advanced tools, such as Print Inspection, Color Measurement and Label Counting use the information from the label wizard to optimize their results.  Now a system integrator and OEMs can use this suite of algorithms to build advanced but cost effective label inspection systems for the narrow web printing market.

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.

Inspect plastic film for defects

OneBoxVision has integrated a complete family of low cost GigE cameras for web inspection. The new awaiba sensor family has reduced the cost of high speed imaging. By producing large sensor arrays, it is now  possible to deploy a web inspection system with little to no machine vision experience, providing your organisation advanced tecnology at a fraction of the cost.
