Plastics Processing: How Machine Vision Addresses Today's Challenges

Oct. 26, 2023
Today's plastics processors have reported increased interest in technology, such as machine vision and integrated software, to help them remain competitive by addressing key issues, such as labor shortages, production costs and quality control.

Conventional processing systems rely on lab or human detection of color and surface defects. Manufacturers today are turning to machine vision as a more accurate and cost-effective way to measure color and product quality, detect surface issues and reduce scrap. This white paper shows how a machine vision non-contact color measurement system can help manufacturers control the cost of quality due to color variations, using real-time color data for QC analytics and color optimization. The new color inspection systems communicate with the color metering system and automatically adjust the color as it deviates during production.
