Camera and laser inspection systems have unique sets of benefits and deficiencies. Neither technology is a perfect fit for the needs of the industry. Dark Field extracted the top 15 customer-driven inspection needs from its 45 years of laser and camera inspection experience. Then, using value engineering, created a hybrid laser/camera technology which met all 15 design objectives while eliminating the deficiencies associated with conventional camera and laser inspection systems. Solid State Laser (or LED) Reflection (SSLR) was born from this work.
The ONLY system that uses lasers and cameras together (SSLR). Light interacts with the defect two times for enhanced detection.
The only self-aligning inspection system in the world. This is critically important for reflection operations. No missed defects, no false hits.
Magnifies defect for improved sizing and classification.
Easiest system to install. Smallest installation envelope in the world. Minimum line down time.
Dark Field was awarded the top prize by CTC, “Technology Product of the Year” beating out 220 other companies for the distinction.
