Afspex technology effectively addresses a challenging application.

The detection of clear foreign plastic materials that do not polarize light (typical inspection method) are very difficult to detect as they provide very little contrast. Most efforts to detect this type of defect result in increased false rejection rates as sensitivities are increased. 

Utilizing our proprietary "Hyperspectral" vision technology effectively eliminates this issue, with zero false accepts or any increase in false rejection.

First pictures of the Afspex Raptor platform released. What appears as a user interface is in fact the entire electronic platform excluding cameras and lighting. This advanced inspection platform not only reduces component count, but real estate requirements on the production line are halved with a total machine width at 12" (305mm).

Additional features include no cooling requirements (AC or other), fifty hour battery backup, 15.6" vertically mounted IPS touchscreen, 11th generation Intel processors, WiFi, Bluetooth and GSM enabled.
