EasyInspect: 100% Inspection of Base & Converted Materials

Dr. Schenk offers a variety of reliable inspection solutions for different materials, that detect defects and irregularities in film & foil, optical film, paper, non-woven, laminated and coated products. Dr. Schenk’s high-speed cameras offer excellent downweb resolution – an indispensable requirement for modern high-speed production environments. From modular and standardized inspection units to customized systems, the Dr. Schenk project team customizes the EasyInspect package that suits various inspection requirements and tasks as well as QA budgets.

Unique MIDA inspection
With Dr. Schenk’s unique Multiple Image Defect Analysis (MIDA) all kinds of web defects can be fully analyzed
in one inspection run. Thanks to ultra-high speed illumination switching and multiple optical channels per camera line all issues can be detected and classified with more information per defect, at higher production speed, than any other inspection technology can.

Monitoring material properties
Correct monitoring of material is a crucial component for the quality of any web material. Dr. Schenk’s EasyMeasure generates a homogeneity map of layer properties (i.e. thickness, surface structure, transmittance) for the full width of the material. A range of false color displays is available to highlight different aspects of the material homogeneity.

EasyInspect is perfect for the detection of:

Coating voids

...and many more!

EasyInspect can be used on:

(Co)-Extruded film
Blown film
Coated and laminated film and foil
Release liner and adhesive film
Battery film
Window film
Flexible Packaging

...and many more!

EasyMeasure: Characterization of Material Properties

Dr. Schenk offers all-in-one quality assurance and process control systems for the production of base materials and converted material. EasyMeasure can be combined with the surface inspection system EasyInspect thus offering for the first time material property monitoring tasks, such as opacity or density, together with high resolution defect detection in a single system. The amount of light transmitted through the material can also be expressed as optical density. This provides a linear correlation to the actual thickness, particularly for homogeneous materials such as plastic or metallized films. EasyMeasure offers:

In-line monitoring of material properties, using existing EasyInspect modules
100 % coverage of the web material
Immediate feedback for process optimization
Measurement without radioactive radiation
Industry-proven design, without moving parts
Operator-friendly visualization and real time 2D map
Ability to be retrofitted to existing Dr. Schenk inspection systems

EasyMeasure is an innovative solution for

Quality control
Production optimization
Data collection
Statistical process control

Company details

Dr. Schenk - The No. 1 in Plastic Inspection

Since 1985 Dr. Schenk has developped, produced and marketed innovative optical surface inspection and measurement solutions for automated quality assurance and production process monitoring near Munich, Germany.

For over 30 years the systems have proven a key success factor in the making and converting of many materials, e.g. plastics, glass, metal, PV modules, textiles, nonwovens, and the semiconductor industry.

Throughout the world Dr. Schenk’s 300+ employees continue to set new standards for the inspection of surfaces. Over 12,000 m² of modern production and testing facilities are available to research, development and production to apply cutting-edge optics and electronics to customer applications.

The company’s objective is complete customer satisfaction. This is achieved through innovative and practical solutions that can be implemented into new and existing production lines. Local sales and service facilities around the world ensure fast support, technical service, training and consulting at any phase of a project. From modular standard units to highly customized systems – Dr. Schenk’s solutions have precision in focus!

Inspection and Measurement

All of the developments made by Dr. Schenk are based on two complementary fundamental principles: quality control and process monitoring.

Quality control provides the data to facilitate decisions for an optimal combination of efficiency and quality. In that way, manufacturing processes can be checked and adjusted towards the goal of an absolutely perfect productProcess monitoring improves the efficiency and stability of corresponding procedures on the basis of measurement values, without putting the quality standard at risk.

The core performance features of Dr. Schenk systems are:

Detecting surface defects and mapping localized imperfections of materials
Measuring the mechanical and optical characteristics of materials
Rapid and precise analysis of measurement values

In summary, Dr. Schenk systems are ideally suited to 100% surface quality control and process monitoring of materials moving at high speeds at modern, highly efficient manufacturers.
