Wherever “machine vision” is used to control production processes in the finishing phase and to monitor processing quality, SETEX is internationally represented as a manufacturer-independent solution provider for customer-specific industrial image processing. When it comes to the development of industrial CCD camera measuring technology, SETEX has 10 years of experience with camera systems, including its own software and market expertise.
Modern finishing systems also improve precision, performance and efficiency through contact-free online capture of stitch count, fabric density and straightening.
CamCOUNT improves the finishing process.
Any company that receives the same article with different fabric density from the weaving or knitting mill is familiar with the problem: the fabric has to be homogenized during the preparation phase. Adjustments made during stentering, drying or functionalizing are important for achieving the desired properties in later stages of the production process. Productivity and accuracy in the dyeing department works are directly dependent on this step.
Even tactile fabric properties such as touch and compactness are automatically adjusted to the desired result with industrial CamCOUNT measuring technology. There are several possibilities for integrating the SETEX system into compactors, sanforizing systems and stenter frames.
Automated inspections and adjustments in the final finishing process for uniform fabric density lead to better fabric yield and constant shrinkage values, and thus to greater customer and consumer satisfaction.
FabricINSPECTOR as a twin technology for stationary quality control
A great advantage of the SETEX CamCOUNT system is its processing capability, which is independent of the fabric speed.
The SETEX FabricINSPECTOR employs the same industrial image processing technology for contact-free recording of stitch count, fabric density and distortion as a stationary device in the technology laboratory. This means that parameters that will be helpful in later processing stages can already be determined upon the arrival of goods at the factory.
