Cross Light Inspection optimizes the ability to see surface defects at full speed.

Saddle Brook, NJ November 2017 - Unilux, the world leader in the design and manufacture of surface inspection lighting, introduces Cross Light Inspection; simultaneous Bright Field and Dark Field illumination, to improve the effectiveness of surface inspection in a mill’s quality control program.

The ability to perform Cross Light Inspection is a result of the company’s recent move to Smart Assist technology, where control over the LED’s is more precise.

In Cross Light Inspection, Smart Assist provides access to advanced features. Multiple LED2000 Series strobes are configured from a single location to simultaneously illuminate the strip at varying angles. Bright field surface defects like scratches, dents, and holes are exposed to the viewer at the same time as dark field surface defects like build up and dross.

“In addition to advance configuration control, Smart Assist technology allows more precise control over critical settings and improvements to multiple strobe configurations,” said Mike Simonis, President of Unilux. “As a result, mills have greater flexibility in illuminating the strip, improving their ability to produce top-grade steel with a perfect surface.”

Unilux LED2000 Series stroboscopic inspection systems now come standard with Smart Assist, available in English, German, Spanish, French and Simplified Chinese (more languages to follow) to accommodate global operations.
