Wednesday, May 1, 2019

AMETEK Surface Vision now offers a free, informative guide for paper manufacturers looking to achieve both high quality certification and yield optimization. 

The Paper Solutions Inspection Guide is a ready reference for AMETEK Surface Vision’s integrated paper surface inspection and monitoring systems: SmartView® and SmartAdvisor® continue to set the highest industry standard in the highly precise real-time detection and classification of paper, packaging and tissue manufacture. 

AMETEK Surface Vision Paper Solutions Brochure The new guide details the integrated system’s real-time video and modular design flexibility for detecting, analyzing and classifying web flaws and defects. Relied on by virtually every major paper producer globally, SmartView was the first digital camera-based system to be installed by a papermill in the ‘90s while SmartAdvisor pioneered synchronized web monitoring for paper manufacturers. 

SmartView’s reliable top and bottom, real-time optical inspection provides surface quality visibility in even the most complex processing environments. Synchronized with the web-monitoring SmartAdvisor, the system combines powerful software with line-scan camera technology and high-intensity lighting, allowing operators to review hours of synchronized images at production speed for unmatched root-cause analysis and material troubleshooting.

The guide illustrates the visual synthesis between upstream and downstream cameras and the key features that provide the foundation for increased production performance. It also outlines the system’s detection capabilities across a range of defects and its production advantages.

“No other solution offers the flexibility and ease-of-use that SmartView and SmartAdvisor deliver. Our systems have become vital to increasing efficiency, streamlining operations, improving product quality and reducing costs. Our approach as a sole supplier of these unique systems remains simple: to provide the latest and best-fit inspection solution for each application, delivered with the highest consistency and without compromise by experienced service engineers,” comments Jason Zyglis, Divisional Vice President of Project and Product Management, AMETEK Surface Vision.
