Dark Field Technologies has introduced NxtGen ClearPlas, which performs inspection of clear or tinted film, sheet and clear coatings.
Detection of defects in clear/tinted plastic film and sheet and clear coatings has been a difficult task for most manual operations and the majority of inspection systems, the company says. Laser systems perform this task very well, but are cost-prohibitive. Lower-cost camera systems may produce false hits, missed defects, difficult installation and constant maintenance/alignment/tuning, according to Dark Field Technologies.
NxtGen ClearPlas features 100% inspection, defect maps and alarms, the ability to be installed in very tight spaces, system modules all on one side of the film/sheet, installation without line shutdown, and no required maintenance. In addition, the system consumes 90% less power than conventional systems, Dark Field Technologies adds.
