June 21, 2019 – AMETEK Surface Vision now offers a free guide for paper manufacturers looking to achieve both quality certification and yield optimization with their AMETEK paper surface inspection and monitoring systems.

The Paper Solutions Inspection Guide is for the SmartView and SmartAdvisor systems, which conduct real-time detection and classification of paper, packaging and tissue manufacture.

The new guide details the integrated system’s real-time video and modular design flexibility for detecting, analyzing and classifying web flaws and defects. 

SmartView’s top and bottom optical inspection provides surface-quality visibility in complex processing environments. Synchronized with the web-monitoring SmartAdvisor, the system combines software with line-scan camera technology and high-intensity lighting, allowing operators to review hours of synchronized images at production speed for 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.
