AMETEK Surface Vision, a leading provider of online surface inspection solutions, will be both exhibiting and presenting its technical expertise at next month’s TAPPICon Live! pulp and paper industry conference.
Held in in Atlanta, Georgia, from October 3-6, TAPPICon Live! is the foremost pulp and paper industry conference in the US, and offers a comprehensive technical program, multiple networking opportunities, and exhibitions.
AMETEK Surface Vision will exhibit its surface inspection solutions on Booth 908. Francois Levac, the company’s Business Director, America, will also discuss ‘Detection of Subtle Streaks and Classification of Defects based on Color’ as part of the show’s New Technology Showcase.
This presentation will highlight AMETEK Surface Vision’s new coating applications inspection feature, which detects subtle streaks and classifies defects based on color. This allows faster, more accurate defect detection and classification, allowing immediate action to avoid scrap material being produced.
It is based around the proven SmartView® inspection system, which has more than 2,500 installations around the world, providing product visibility and process quality to a wide range of industries. Around 950 of these installations are in the pulp and paper sector.
As a modular system, SmartView can be configured with the best-fit technology for each application, including color cameras to enable better identification of defects and to distinguish them from harmless spots that may be falsely flagged as defects by a monochrome system.
Francois Levac, Director of Sales – Americas, said: “TAPPICon Live! provides an excellent opportunity for us to demonstrate the benefits of our color camera inspection systems in pulp or paper contaminant detection applications. I’m looking forward to explaining how this new technology allows us to accurately classify defects based on color, including blood, insects, dye clumps versus dirt, and more, reducing scrap material.”
