Controlled vision systems. (Instruments).
This series of camera operated and computer controlled vision systems has been developed for the rubber, plastics and other industries. The cameras of these systems can detect all kinds of images on running webs such as printed lines, repetitive patterns, laminated edges, web edges with fringes but ignoring the fringe, etc., with extreme accuracy and dependability, according to the company. These systems can be integrated in many types of aligning, steering, trimming or slitting operations, resulting in quality improvements, reduction of downtime and reduction, if not elimination, of trim waste, according to the manufacturer. These systems also include a nose detecting system capturing an embossed center marking on extruded tire thread or inner liner products with extreme accuracy and providing very dependable alignment systems of tire making equipment to the extruded product, improving the process of tire manufacturing significantly, according to the company.
