The ES150 Sheet Extrusion Process Imaging System is an automated inspection system for detecting, measuring, and classifying defects occurring in sheet extrusion, cast film and web processes. The ES150 system continuously monitors the web process allowing temperature data to be visualized as a line graph (profile) and a thermographic image. Profiles and images may be printed or archived for analysis.
Through the use of OPC (OLE for Process Control), the ES150 system acts as an OPC server and communicates with many common process control systems. This feature allows the ES150 to move beyond being just a measurement tool and becomes an integral part of the total process control system.
