The  Home and Apparel Textile industry has traditionally adopted innovation and the application of new technologies to advance the overall performance of processes and materials used and to control costs and quality.

As manufacturing processes increase in speed and complexity, whilst at the same time safety and quality standards become more rigorous, the need for an automated quality control solution is ever more pressing.

The benefits of Digital imaging for Textiles

Shelton Vision have applied state of the art machine vision system techniques that offer the following benefits:

  • The ability to set identifiable standards of visual quality control.
  • The ability to audit results and trace any deviation.
  • The ability to eject faulty components in real time.
  • Elimination of variable human subjectivity on day to day quality decisions.

With expertise in delivering stand alone systems, or systems integrated into a production process, Shelton Vision have the capability to provide solutions that often exceed expectations and often provide additional benefit to those identified at the outset of a project.

Shelton Vision have experience in inspecting all types of knitted and woven textile fabrics for many different end uses (suiting, performance apparel, sportswear, work wear) at inspection speeds in excess of 100m/minute.
