A History of Surface Inspection Excellence

Wintriss Engineering Corporation, founded in 1989 in San Diego, CA, USA, develops and manufactures optical surface inspection systems using smart cameras. Rapidly expanding with a worldwide presence, Wintriss has installed systems in North America, Asia, India, Europe, and the Middle East. The company's subsidiary, Wintriss Inspection Solutions, Ltd., and principal manufacturing and sales facility in Asia, is located in Taipei, Taiwan. Research and development are performed in both San Diego and Taipei.

Having developed our first smart camera in 1994, Wintriss is a pioneer in embedding image processing intelligence in digital cameras. We have created increasingly capable cameras with faster processing speed, higher resolution, and flexibility. These cameras are specifically created for surface inspection, with both continuous web and discrete piece-by-piece applications.

Our design hallmark is a powerful field-programmable gate array in a high resolution camera which hosts a real time image processing capability. Additional on-board processing using a general purpose CPU and real time operating system simplifies overall system architectures, streamlines camera-to-host communications, facilitates system scalability, enhances reliability, and reduces system cost.

Wintriss Engineering's flagship product is the Web Ranger™ System which employs the linear scan cameras in a networked, distributed architecture. Our core competency is the in-depth understanding of optics, lighting, and image processing. This expertise and our extensive surface inspection experience enable the company to conceive and implement innovative designs to meet diverse customer requirements for surface inspection.

Patents in image processing and illumination technology are the basis for the exceptional defect detection and classification performance of the Web Ranger™ System and Wintriss' market leadership in the inspection of optical films.
