LOUISVILLE, Colo., March 29, 2011 — Boulder Imaging Inc. has released Vision Inspector Beacon for web inspection in the film, plastic, paper, glass, solar film and semiconductor industries. Suitable for in-line materials inspection, defect detection, defect archiving, and real-time awareness and reporting across a wide range of defects, it is built to achieve high throughput rates with zero false positives. The system identifies defects and anomalies in materials at speeds in excess of 900 ft/m and addresses inspection requirements such as registration, presence/absence, alignment, color matching and surface irregularities. Proprietary hardware and software provide fast and accurate inspection in addition to data retention capabilities. The three-tier architecture design is composed of an inspection station, the archive and reporting server (ARS) and the event viewer client (EVC). The inspection station is placed in-line and detects defects and anomalies and delivers defect data to the ARS, which stores it and presents it to the EVC for review and analysis. The ARS can be configured to meet any retention requirements and is expandable for massive data storage. The EVC enables information dissemination throughout the organization. Many EVCs running on personal computers simultaneously provide management with near real-time insight into production defects and quality. Features include variable views and presentations of data on the EVC, use of a standard structured query language database for extensible third-party reporting, integration into all major programmable logic controllers, expandable metadata and support for transistor-transistor-logic triggering. Users can easily incorporate feature sets such as metrology or system monitoring and alerting from the company’s Benchmark and Guardian products.
