Mississippi Polymers, Inc. started the New Year with an innovative bang, and we will close out the year with a ground-breaking explosion. Back in January, we completed the successful start-up of a state-of-the-art vision inspection system on one of our Calenders. At that time, we had hoped to be able to install this impressive technology on all of our Calenders, and now, we are a step closer to making that dream a reality.
We are excited to announce that this remarkable system will be installed on another one of our Calenders later this month. This means an additional Calender will have assurance of complete in-line inspection for our films. The vision inspection system recognizes and verifies article and production codes, checks surface, and inspects measurements and contours. Not only that but it will provide the assistance needed to produce films with a higher level of quality. Fewer rejects means a lower total ownership and conversion cost, and what does that mean for our customers? It means greater value, a satisfactory business experience, and data to inspire confidence to grow-grow-grow.
This amazing vision inspection system comes from the great minds at Intelligent Systems Robotics and Automation (ISRA). ISRA is a company that, like us, has a dedication to quality. They designed and programmed this system to detect even the most miniscule surface irregularities on our calendered films. Having this system installed on one more Calender further helps our operating and quality teams since it can see things that the naked eye is unable to at production speeds. Meaning we can guarantee reliable, 100% quality control, and can keep bragging about our ability to produce films that flawless.
If you would like to find out more about the vision inspection system and its capabilities, then please do not hesitate to reach out to your sales engineer or our technical team. And in case you were wondering about our other Calenders– don’t worry! We want all of them to feel loved, so our plans are still to have this powerful system installed on all of our Calenders.
