Our Edge-Vision system is a camera based system with our own connectivity software, that can detect and identify anomalies inline in production lines.
In this video you'll discover our anomaly detection system and our thickness measurement system.
Our colleague Maarten de Groof will show you in this video how our quality systems work and how this will benefit you.
The ruggedized steel Edge-Vision-4.0-CURTAIN systems provide 100% optical quality control for both continuous and batch processes. They are able to visually identify and qualify anomalies, features or deviations in material homogeneity. Scratches, pinholes, stains or geometrical deviations are identified in real time. The Edge-Vision-4.0-CURTAIN systems differentiate themselves from existing systems thanks to their robust machine design. The robustness, in turn, delivers a reliability boost in your production line.
Our machine vision platform Edge-Vision-4.0 has been created to deal with various accept/reject problems, and identify anomaly levels in products over the range of industries we are currently delivering thickness and basis-weight measuring solutions to. So we are focusing on roll-to-roll processes, meaning mostly: nonwovens, textile coating and plastics extrusion. We know machine-vision can also be beneficial in various batch-job businesses or small-piece manufacturing (in electronics manufacturing, mechanical parts, injection molding components, medicine packaging) or bulk processing/production (food industry, sorting applications, wood pulp industry…), but we prefer to deliver it exclusively in the markets that are well known to us.
Hammer-IMS excels in inline process and production control. With our Edge-Vision-4.0 product family we are adding a new eye to your product or process. We are offering this new product in the same industries we are targeting with our inline thickness and basis-weight measuring solutions (our Marveloc-CURTAIN and Marveloc-CHARIOT products).
Currently only available within our Reference Program, we offer the Edge-Vision-4.0 range of products in the markets of plastic film extrusion and textiles/nonwovens, providing solutions for:
We are no magicians, we are making advantage of five technology innovation waves! Allow us to explain:
Having analyzed the five aforementioned technology waves, we believe we can make a real difference for you with our Edge-Vision-4.0 platform. We named our platform referring to its plethora of machine machine-VISION tasks it is built for. Furthermore we process the visual data on the platform itself! That’s why we introduced the wording EDGE in our platform. At the same time, it contains a reliable internet connection for easy maintenance (through TeamViewer). The Edge-Vision-4.0 platform can easily integrated into the production line (Industry 4.0) through PROFINET or OPC UA. Everything is put on a frame, preferably our well-known stationary C-frame technology for maximum image stability. We are working with reliable camera technology of the brands SICK and KEYENCE.
