Product type: Web Control & Inspection

Inspection systems for sheet-type running webs. For process optimisation in production lines or quality control at the machine entry or exit end.

Various systems are available to meet the characteristics of the given type of material, of the application conditions and of the task to be performed: for a higher return on investment thanks to better quality and higher productivity.

Inspection Of Opaque Surfaces

Inspection Of Opaque Surfaces

Inspection Of Opaque Surfaces

Material impervious to light is inspected in the reflective mode.

  • single sided inspection of an inspection line
  • double sided inspection of an inspection line
  • several inspection lines at different scanning angles, for example bright area/dark area

Inspection Of Translucent Material

Inspection of translucent material

Inspection of translucent material

Translucent material is inspected in the transmitted light mode. Depending on the web transparency differently strong light sources will shine through the web.

  • Standard inspection by an inspection line
  • Combined inspection in the reflection and transmitted light modes by serveral inspection lines

Inspection cameras

Very compact intelligent CCD line cameras with integrated evaluation hardware and software (FPGA, DSP, PC).

  • Different scanning frequencies for different web speeds
  • Different numbers of pixels for different resolution requirements
  • Automatic camera calibration for installation position, linearization and focussing
  • Own development by Erhardt+Leimer

Teleservice

A worldwide direct access to the inspection system via modem or VPN connection means considerable cost reduction and fast assistance.
