AUGUST 30--Dalsa (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada; www.dalsa.com) has signed an agreement for the design, fabrication, and installation of an on-line, real-time variable-speed inspection system to detect and classify defects in DuPont's Kapton polyimide film. This latest multiple-camera vision system is built around Dalsa's 4k, 4-tap PIRANHA2 linescan camera and its trademarked MotionVision software.
The installation is capable of imaging single pixel defects at speeds ranging from the maximum 36-kHz line rate of the cameras down to a stopped state, allowing for immediate repair of identified defects. The system can be easily reconfigured for the inspection of a wide range of Kapton products, including laminates and coated materials.
"We're pleased to continue to provide vision system solutions for DuPont Electronic Technologies," remarked Jim Roberts, head of Dalsa's Vision for Machines Group. "With this latest installation and the introduction of image-capture classification over a range of speed, DuPont will be able to realize even greater cost-savings."
