Product smoothness through optical film and foil inspection

Despite the high investments by foil producers in their production lines, operators still often lack objective information as to the quality of their foil products and production processes. Added to this, customers increasingly demand 100 percent quality inspection, especially for medical and food stuff foils. On the other hand, producers want to reduce out-of-spec production and reject rates, and optimize their production processes. Therefore suitable film and foil inspection systems have become increasingly essential in production lines for film or foils.

PIXARGUS’ WebControl Surface system is an ideal solution for film and foil inspection and for the detection and avoidance of defects such as specks, gels, inclusions, impurities and insects right during the production process. Whether simple or highly complex, non-transparent or (semi-)transparent, with or without reinforced fibers – PIXARGUS’ wide product and service range provides a suitable and tailor-made solution for every application and all production and process steps.

WebControl S not only provides measured data and data evaluations in real time. It also processes quality-relevant data into a “defect map”. The system’s smart Big Data analysis functions make the production chain more transparent, especially at quality-critical production stages. Repetitive defects can be avoided and the production process can be optimized in a targeted way. The system can be integrated into corporate network structures, SAP environments and existing PDA and ERP systems. It can, of course, also be networked with other measuring systems and integrated into state of the art Industry 4.0 applications. All components of the system can be controlled within a decentralized structure along the line or centrally via a server.
