Vision-Based Surface Inspection for the Wire and Cable Industry

Taymer’s camera vision systems are used in many plants all over the world. These systems include surface inspection, print verification, color verification, dimensional control, as well as product characteristic comparison. Taymer’s experience stems from the Wire & Cable industry and the detection of small defects at very high speeds on continuous products. For the last 20 years, this knowledge has been applied and developed into numerous new applications ranging from catheter inspection to liquid level control, and from offline parts inspection to inline optical character recognition on labelled packages. The sky is the limit for camera-based applications, be sure to give us a call or drop us a line if you would like to discuss how we can support you in your production.
