A more effective solution to measure dirt count in real time
Existing quality measurements evaluate a portion of the product, which assumes that defects are evenly distributed throughout the sheet. This means good quality product could be erroneously downgraded. ABB's full-sheet dirt count, coupled with high resolution CMOS digital cameras and advanced machine learning tools, provides an exceptional understanding of dirt distribution--even on the fastest and widest, modern paper machines. Papermakers gain a more accurate assessment of quality and therefore can increase profitability.
Defect size classifications to ISO/TAPPI/ANSI standards
Dirt detection and analysis are performed by specialized, high-speed FPGA devices. Defects as small as 0.02 mm2 may be detected, which enables ABB’s Dirt Count feature to be fully compliant with all defect size classifications of ISO/TAPPI/ANSI standards.
