  • SmartAdvisor - Surface Monitoring

    Using high-speed cameras, perfectly synchronized, SmartAdvisor® Surface Monitoring simplifies the monitoring and analysis of surface images.

    By unifying the images from multiple cameras, the system delivers a comprehensive monitoring and inspection solution across the process, not only detecting defects but establishing root causes.

    Combining strategically placed cameras along the process with patented software, SmartAdvisor Surface Monitoring accurately synchronizes video frames from each camera to generate a complete system overview showing the cause and effect of surface defects.

    Designed to provide video monitoring for surface inspection to manufacturers worldwide, SmartAdvisor is used across a range of industries, including paper, aluminum, copper, steel, plastics, and nonwovens.

    SmartAdvisor Surface Monitoring delivers 100% operator control over the monitoring process, and eliminates the need for up-close manual inspection. Providing accurate surface monitoring while keeping personnel away from the production process reduces safety risks.

    With instantaneous alarms and notifications to alert operators to take immediate action, defect detection can be dealt with quickly. This reduces waste product and increases process efficiency.

    Synchronization between the cameras and the process enable defects to be accurately tracked to their source within a fraction of a second at any line location. This supports rapid troubleshooting.


    SmartAdvisor - Edge Monitoring

    An advanced edge cross-section monitoring system, Edge Monitoring enables both trimmed material edges in a processing line to be monitored for anomalies.

    Detecting edge defects such as cut-to-break ratios and burrs is critical for quality control purposes and to avoid any issues in the subsequent processing line.

    Edge Monitoring magnifies, captures, stores and visualizes high-resolution edge images at full production speed, delivering a continuous, smooth video stream. Images are processed for analysis, enabling the operator to see subtle changes in the cut edge.

    Specifically developed for the metals industry, SmartAdvisor Edge Monitoring is suitable for applications in the aluminum, copper, steel and plastics industries.

    SmartAdvisor® Edge Monitoring is continuously capturing the edge of the material even when a user is reviewing previously captured video.
    SmartAdvisor Edge Monitoring provides a second to second view of the material as it is being processed, allowing operators to take quick action to correct problems.
    A diverse range of SmartAdvisor solutions provide customizable systems to fit individual production and quality requirements. This ensures the most capable, cost-effective installation is available for each user.
