Beyond production and manufacturing processes, it may be necessary to inspect plastics to ensure continued performance levels. Automated monitoring will detect any imperfections that may appear during normal operation.

Many plastic products need to be monitored to ensure continued effective operation and to detect potential problems at an early stage. Because of the diverse range of applications, these products are often located in areas where it is difficult or unsafe to inspect using manual methods.

For example, plastic storage tanks are a key area for inspection, as any flaws could lead to loss or damage of the stored material. Other applications depend upon the continued reliable operation of the plastic product. 

An automated inspection system can operate continuously to detect operational problems at the earliest stage. Intelligent classification software will alert the operator when the issue reaches a level of concern, allowing remedial action to be taken before a significant problem occurs.
