In-line Transparent Appearance Analysis, Haze, Sharpness, Clarity & Transmittance
Manufactured by Rhopoint Instruments
In-line measurement of appearance properties of transparent materials
The visible optical properties of transparent product are key to both the perceived quality and the functionality of the material. For instance a shipping label requires good clarity to ensure it can be read on a high speed conveyor, while a salad try which is often has recycled content should have low haze so that the consumer can see the colours of the packed salad.
Until now these key optical properties could only be measured offline, The Rhopoint ID-Inline allows constant measurement of a number of key properties with instant feedback to allow the continuous process fine tuning and therefore better quality product with consistent optical properties from the start of the run to the very end.
Key Optical Properties Measured
The Rhopoint ID-Inline is an advanced camera-based optical measurement system which fully quantifies product transparency
with parameters which are correlated to human perception.
Two versions of the Rhopoint ID-Inline are available.
Short focal length, which has a 45 mm distance between the camera and graticule. This is best suited to measurement of films or glass in sheet form or inline measurement of glass and plastic tubes.
Long focal length which has a 170mm distance between the camera and graticule. This is best suited to for online systems where a longer focal length would be beneficial
Either version can be incorporated into an inspection station for 3D parts or large sheets of plastic or glass.
Standard or extended clearance models are available to encompass a wide variety of parts and installation configurations.
