Automated Surface Inspection

Increase throughput and production capacity

increase throughput

Shelton’s automated machine vision systems allow your business to increase throughput, line speeds and accuracy. Shelton produces error-proofing applications that can detect defects at the earliest possible stage resulting in the smallest amount of financial damage.

Reduce the rejection rate

Reducing a number of defects within the production process will have a positive impact on the rejection rate of the final product. For example, if you produce 1,000 garments within an hour but have a 10% rejection rate, you will have wasted 100 pieces over an hour, and 800 over a normal shift. If you could reduce this by half then it would be far easier to meet quotas, reduce money and time wasted on remanufacturing.

Reduce manual inspection

This is the time spent inspecting raw materials, work-in-process, and finished goods, possibly at multiple stages of the production process. Shelton’s WebSPECTOR system delivers an automated self-learning solution which ensures maximum profit from each batch.

Manual inspectors could be used elsewhere within the business, streamlining processes through planning and optimisation.

The benefits of an automated detection system

  • Each percentage increase in yield results in an increase in both profit and revenue
  • Reduction in resources, customer claims, waste and landfill costs
  • Decrease costly resupply and shipping costs
  • Improved quality analysis reports and for process improvement and supplier relations
  • Build trust and retain existing customers
  • Use your stringent processes to attract new customers
