Elizabethtown, Kentucky (USA): FLEXMETPROTECTTM is now placed under state of the art optical surface inspection technology and defect classification system that reveals and quantifies defects with the help of the newly launched Web Metalized Surface Inspection System. The system checks the entire web and allows for rapid and accurate detection of defects on the film. The Web Metalized Surface Inspection System is placed in a strategic part of the slitting process just near to the winding roll comprised of smart, line-scan cameras that can analyze 100% of the web for defects in real time.
Speaking about the Inspection system, Mr. Deepak Mehta, Technical Manager at Flex Films (USA) Inc. said, The Web Metalized Surface Inspection System will address any defect related to metal deposition such as the areas with high defect density or those having Periodic defect or the ones with Continuous defect and even Contamination. The system measures and records the data in real time at very high web speed, generating a comprehensive report including mapping, defect characteristics like area, width, defect, light intensity etc. which helps the operator to address any quality related issues. This improves production efficiency and product quality and in-turn helps customers with less product wastage and downtime."
Getting into the detail of the system, Mr. Vijay Yadav, Business Head, Flex Films (USA) Inc said, "The Web Metalized Surface Inspection System is designed for the inspection of non-patterned materials which are manufactured in continuous web processes. It performs the actual inspection and reports the inspection results that are reviewed prior to sending roll to the customer. It's kind of a closed-loop system with slitting and metallizing operations working in harmony to produce the best quality product, thereby assuring our customers of FLEXMETPROTECTTM that the roll shipped to them is always A grade."
