AMETEK Surface Vision, the leading provider of surface inspection solutions for industrial markets, offers versatile systems to ensure material quality during the manufacturing process of the different layers in touch panels and screens. The benefits of its accurate, automated inline surface inspection systems are explained in a new application note that focuses on solutions for mobile devices and displays.
The touchscreens and display panels used in a range of applications — such as mobile phones, tablets, and televisions — are required to meet the highest criteria for quality and performance in order to provide a clear display and withstand frequent use.
Since they are assembled from a number of different layers, any single defect in one layer can have a significant, detrimental impact on the finished product, so accurate, automated surface inspection is essential at each stage of the manufacturing process.
AMETEK Surface Vision’s SmartView and SmartAdvisor systems combine cutting-edge software and rugged, proven hardware to deliver precise, real-time detection and classification of material defects in these layers.
Uniting the company’s powerful web inspection and monitoring capabilities, synchronized high-resolution color camera technology is supported by powerful LED lighting arrays for high-quality image capture of defects using multiple inspection angles.
All hardware is non-proprietary, so AMETEK Surface Vision experts can select the best-fit technology for each application, delivered with the highest consistency and without compromise by the most experienced service personnel.
Volker Kölmel, Global Manager Plastic, Nonwovens, and Paper, from AMETEK Surface Vision, said: “Our innovative inspection systems ensure that screen manufacturers can achieve improved product quality, increased productivity and optimized yields while detecting defects prior to value-added processes or shipping, ultimately providing a reduced need for manual inspections.”
