Highlights of WebControl S CarbonFiber
PIXARGUS Multi-Camera Sensor Technology
High-capacity multi-camera sensors of microscopic resolution can focus on any characteristic feature of a heavily textured fabric and measure this feature with an accuracy of a few micrometers. Thanks to complex image processing and sample recognition algorithms, even the reflections of shiny materials can be used to make any tiny irregularity visible and detectable.
Intelligent operator guidance via a 21.5” multitouch screen and a clearly structured cockpit displaying all camera images and parameter settings make for easy and swift operation. Comfortable assistance systems, such as the automatic and simplified lighting control and focusing feature, reduce the set-up effort and eliminate operating errors.
“Big Data” becomes “Quality@ Industry 4.0”
WebControl S is Industry 4.0 ready, as it can be intelligently networked via LAN or other interfaces with additional sensors, measuring systems, PDA and ERP systems, and a PLC environment. WebControl interlinks the quality data measured by the sensors and combines them into an integrated data map. Thus, the user can analyze the results within a coherent context and condense “big data” to what is really needed.
Maximum scalability and interaction within a network structure
WebControl is a universal system supplied on a turnkey basis and designed to be scaled up at any time by additional networked components. This gives you a maximum of flexibility and security of investment. Simply install the computer safely in the server room and place all the camera and sensor equipment in the line – scalability can be that easy!
Compact. Robust. Made in Germany.
The housing and wiring of the system have been designed specifically for service under most severe conditions. Thus they easily cope even with high mechanical stress. Tried and tested materials, ergonomic design and precision engineering guarantee longevity and provide security of investment.
Thanks to the sophisticated framework software architecture, it is possible to map the complex web structure while detecting defects typical of carbon fiber material, such as weaving and warp knitting defects, improper gap widths, inhomogeneous powder application, etc. Refined algorithms even take into account the specific reflection angle of the material to make flaws like flints, broken filaments or deviations in the fiber structure visible.
Optional system modules
Defect Density Management (DDM)
Not every defect automatically means that a product is “out of spec”. In many cases, a certain number of smaller defects on a defined length of the product is tolerable. The DDM (Defect Density Management) module allows you to define - by simple sets of rules - defect densities and defect sizes that shall be considered as still acceptable.
Dynamic surface adaption
This module is a highly valuable asset, as it automatically adapts the system to the surface structure of the web: It makes it unnecessary for the operator to constantly make manual adaptations to the detection thresholds. Thus a reliable inspection process is guaranteed.
With innovative RFID technology it is possible to assign the quality data generated by the inspection systems to individual lots, coils, etc. This improves and streamlines your automation processes and makes them autonomous – a key feature of Industry 4.0.
