Erhardt+Leimer GmbH of Augsburg, Germany, introduced a web inspection system, Elsis, which the company said improves quality control and boosts productivity in film production and film processing.
Elsis mainly is used with optical films, pharmaceutical films and food packaging.
The company developed lighting systems, for example with light-emitting diodes, that capture even difficult contrasts, to point out defects. Elsis classifies defects according to type and size. A new generation of camera does roll zooms and offers single-roll protocols, extended statistical functions and the identification of repetitive defects.
