VISUAL INSPECTION

Sometimes it is necessary to “freeze” the picture with a stroboscope to find out what is really happening on your machine at full speed.

  • Pickup-related problems like trim lifting or edge dropping are often caused by poor trimming. Air bubbles in the trim jet interrupt the trimming and can only be visualized with a good stroboscope.
  • Detect blocked holes in the couch roll on the fly.
  • Sheet formation, strength and through-sight are all influenced by the turbulence on the fabric. Turbulence can only be visually assessed with a strobe.
  • The remaining fabric life potential is not only determined by the fabric’s caliper; a visual inspection with a microscope gives additional detailed information on the fabric’s condition.
