FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

"Where the Science of Quality Assurance is still an Art!"

R.K.B. OPTO-ELECTRONICS, INC. Receive Multiple Orders

 

from Irish Converting Company

 

R.K.B. OPTO-ELECTRONICS, INC., a leader in providing machine vision, web inspection, splice detection and quality assurance and control technologies, has been selected to supply its state of the art Model 1032C Enforcer® Metalized Splice Detector™ Technology for metalized web materials.  This technology, based on resistive sensing, was developed due to existing sensing technologies such as photocells, ultrasonic, and inductive approaches have significant issues in providing consistent and reliable detection.  This Model 1032C Enforcer® Metalized Splice Detector™ Technology is designed to monitor one full web of single or laminated grades between 1 and 600 microns thick up to speeds in excess of 2000 fpm (609.6 meters/min).  Specially designed shock absorber components ensure that no adjustment upon grade changes are required and that wrinkles, which may not be a problem, are ignored.  Our "metalized splice detector" as we call it, will detect all known types of splice tape faults commonly used in metalized packaging material.  Additionally, the Model 1032C Enforcer® Metalized Splice Detector™ Technology will work on normal paper and film as well.  Simple and very cost effective, the R.K.B. Model 1032C Enforcer® Metalized Splice Detector™ Technology is being implemented more commonly worldwide.

 

R.K.B. is proud to have been selected to provide the most widely used, state-of-the-art detection technology available today. "This is an vital partnership for R.K.B., and one that we will continually work on to ensure the highest possible quality can be achieved when our products are implemented as OEM” said R.K.B.  With manufacturing costs ever increasing, it has become essential for reliable and consistent defect detection in a wide variety of conversion processes whereby the elimination of all types of defects are essential. R.K.B. and our partners offer our customers with a comprehensive solution that are not affected by discrete basis weight changes, changes in caliper of material, color of material, machine production speeds and type of defects.

 

R.K.B. pioneered the field of web inspection for web based paper, film, foil and allied material manufacturing.  R.K.B. developed and patented many of the technologies currently in use today such as infrared phototransistor flaw detection technology, inductive and capacitive detection technology, ultraviolet phototube hole detection technology and camera based machine vision web inspection technology.  In fact, R.K.B. was the first company in the world that incorporated camera sensors for the detection of defect faults in web material in the mid 1970's and patented this technique called the VIDISCAN 7000.  Today R.K.B. invests a majority of its capital to research and development in new defect fault detection sensor techniques.  Among our many innovations besides our patented splice detection technology, which is the world leading technology used for the detection of splice (joint) tape faults, is our very successful patented Model 3020 OPTOMIZER® Coating Streak/Scratch Inspection Technology.  This technology, now being emulated and copied (badly we might add), by various European inspection solution suppliers, detects streaks and scratches as small as 1 micron (0.000039 inches (0.001 millimeter)) wide at any known process speed.  This is not only theoretical proven, but proven online at various coated paper makers worldwide.  Refer to the three studies provided herein for customer verification of the success of our streak detection technology which can be found at the following links "European Coated Board Installation", "Consolidated Papers Inc., On-line Evaluation Verification" and the comparative study done by the "American Forest Products Association in conjunction with the Institute for Paper Science and Technology".  These three vital documents were produced in a bipartisan process by each of these companies.  R.K.B. OPTO-ELECTRONICS, INC., designs, develops, manufactures, and markets the most diverse line of machine vision and web inspection technologies currently available to web based material manufacturers. R.K.B., has offices and partners worldwide in Asia, Europe, South America and the Middle East.
