The Web Ranger is an optical surface inspection and defect classification system that provides a total quality solution for products produced in continuous webs.
The highly modular design allows the system to be tailored to any application based on web width, web speed and defect size (resolution) requirements. The incorporation of smart cameras with embedded processing resources enables the system to provide real time, 100% inspection of the material and rapid, accurate detection of defects.
The Web Ranger’s advanced surface inspection classification engine can perform precise defect classification based on extremely subtle differences between defect categories. Using over one hundred extracted features and multiple techniques, the classification engine can be easily trained to reliably recognize distinct defect categories present in the material being inspected. Web Ranger’s superior classification performance greatly enhances product grading, process control and overall quality control.

The incorporation of smart cameras with embedded processing resources enables the system to provide 100% inspection of the material and rapid, accurate detection of defects. This allows the system to be easily optimized to inspect metallized plastic film, synthetic paper, fiberglass, woven textiles, coated nonwovens, glass and many more.
Web Ranger inspection solutions and classification libraries have been successfully proven for many industries.
Wintriss linear light sources are optimized for web inspection and the challenge of operating in a 24/7 production environment:
Whatever your surface inspection application, Web Ranger is a cost-effective solution that provides a rapid return on investment.
Proper illumination is critical to effective flaw detection performance. Lighting design must consider material texture, web speed, defect size and type, color and ambient lighting.
Wintriss lighting experts have developed and patented a series of sophisticated techniques and specialized lights that are optimized for surface inspection. We are the best in the industry at determining the most effective lighting solution for the inspection application. Wintriss has patented several innovative lighting techniques that expose extremely small defects that can't be detected by other systems. The clarity of the images produced using these techniques results in reliable detection and accurate classification.
A powerful classification engine quickly and accurately sorts the defects into user-defined categories to aid in production quality control and process improvement. All defect data can be viewed in real time and is also stored in a comprehensive database for subsequent review, analysis, reporting and archiving.
Our Web Ranger system has been installed at over 250 locations in 16 countries worldwide. With local support available across the world there is no better choice for your surface inspection needs than Wintriss.
