VISUAL INSPECTION SYSTEM AIDS IN QUALITY CONTROL
Excell Control has developed a visual inspection system "TBIS" (tile back inspection system)
The world's largest manufacturer of commercial carpet tiles required a method to allow the visual inspection of the back of the carpet tiles once presented face up on the inspection table. Previously the tile had to be physically turned over for inspection, which was laborious and time consuming.
A single image of the back of the carpet is taken prior to entering the press for cutting. The image is then buffered until the cut tiles are presented to the Inspector, then displayed. A software“mask” over-lay is added to aid the inspector as well as a live image, numerical index and current product information, two additional pre-buffer images are also provided..
The TBIS visual inspection system has improved quality control and increased productivity.
