Reduce Waste - Increase Profits

Automated Surface Inspection Systems

Smart Machine Vision Systems

The value of a machine vision system is realised by reducing labour involvement, optimising yield from every batch and providing accurate feedback for continuous process improvement.

Shelton vision systems incorporate cognitive computing and artificial intelligence (AI) to ‘understand’ the fabric appearance and enable system setting to be calculated by the system and automatically applied so that each style has the perfect inspection setting to ensure detection and avoid false alarms.

Deep learning techniques are employed to determine the defect type (classification) and severity (grade) of defects in real time, as well as to further refine detection and filtering capability.

WebSpector Inspection System

The Shelton WebSpector high speed inspection system uses artificial intelligence machine learning together with state of the art machine vision and optical hardware to achieve unparalleled defect detection in demanding applications, with deep learning techniques used to accurately deliver real time classification and grading.

Slow moving web solutions

By applying cost effective inspection systems to fabric forming machines running and repeating defects can be eliminated which increases the amount of good product produced by each machine and saves on raw material waste.
