Sometimes “scratching the surface” is a defect, not a phrase.
Comprehensive line scan expertise
Quality inspecting of continuous flat form products like textiles, paper, sheet metal, films or wood requires deep expertise in line scan technology. With a proven track record in this field, JAI is your perfect camera partner.
Catching every defect, even at top speed
Modern printing presses or production lines for paper, plastic sheeting, and other materials run at extreme speeds and require a 100% inspection of the products. JAI’s monochrome and color line scan cameras offer high precision at some of the fastest rates in the industry.
High resolution to identify surface faults
Even slighthly scratched surfaces or textural imperfections can lead to rejected products or a damaged company reputation. Efficient and reliable detection of the smallest defects is a job well suited to the high resolution and low noise images produced by JAI line scan cameras.
JAI cameras: a perfect fit for web and surface inspection systems
Roll-based and flat-form production lines for paper, plastic, textiles, steel, and more require extremely fast in-line inspection systems with continuous operation and high data volumes.
JAI’s broad range of line scan cameras are the perfect vision platform to monitor and inspect these so-called “web” applications. High speed monochrome and trilinear cameras identify small tears that can lead to major breaks and costly downtime, while innovative products like our prism-based 3-chip and 4-chip line scan cameras help to spot scratches, stains, pattern and color deviations better than standard color cameras.
Web inspection systems built around JAI cameras catch subtle defects to avoid expensive rework later in the production process. And that means higher yields and happier customers.
Typical web and surface inspection applications
Line scan cameras ensure perfectly printed material
Large, web-based printing presses are still one of the best known areas for line scan imaging systems – making sure that colors and print registration are correct.
Looking for anomalies in paper production
Producing paper is a high speed business that requires high-end vision systems and cameras to identify any anomalies in the product.
The steel industry relies on surface inspection systems
Sheet metal for car panels has to be inspected for dings and scratches before getting painted. Even small defects can lead to a spoiled overall appearance.
Web inspection in textile production
Perfect fabrics are the basis for fine outfits. Line scan cameras accurately identify color mismatches or flaws in weaving to avoid defective goods.
Plastic film inspection
Plastic films can be found in almost all areas of life to cover all kinds of products. During production, rolls of plastic are inspected by surface inspection systems.
Lumber and board inspection
JAI’s area scan and color line scan cameras are used in wood/board inspection systems detecting and analyzing features such as color tones, knots, holes, splits and rot but also for checking dimensions, growth rings, wanes and more.
