- About Us
Amtech’s Quali-Vue (previously Qualitek’s Quali-Vue) vision-based board quality measurement system provides automatic measurements of sheet dimensions (length and width) and sheet warp (cross-direction and end-to- end direction) for every stack of sheets coming off the corrugator. It reduces the reliance on stacker operators doing manual checks for board dimensions and warp.
The solution uses the latest in vision technology as the basis of the system. This system utilizes multiple camera / laser pairs mounted on an overhead structure. Multiple high-resolution images are recorded and processed in real-time to measure board dimensions and warp for every stack or unit. The camera and laser geometry are precisely calibrated before installation to provide accurate measurements and allow for the fusion of data across sensors to handle a wide range of sheet sizes. The measurements are compared against specs for the order and plant specs for warp and the results (GO or NO GO) are posted within seconds of the measurements.
All equipment is located on an overhead structure. Interfaces to the conveyor system and/or the order handling/tag printing system will enable comparison of order dimensions against order specs and flagging of non- conforming orders.
Provides the plant with the analytics to quantify board quality (warp) in terms of overall plant quality measurement vs. goals, and for specific board grades or flutes, etc.
Provides the plant with a record of the measurements of the units that were sent for a specific order in order to handle customer inquiries/complaints.
