The customers’ products include both coated galvanized and stainless steel. Engineering trials for incorporating inspection hardware and software will begin at three separate facilities in Mexico and the United States in the next few months.
100 Percent Inspection
“Boulder Imaging’s inspection technology demonstrates that speed and accuracy can coexist in rolled steel inspection from stainless to coated or uncoated. Our clients will be able to conduct 100 percent inspection down to 26 microns with traceable results. Every shipment can be made with full confidence that rolls or blanks will meet customer acceptance criteria.”
Jorquera added that accurate, fast and objective inspection will dramatically elevate quality assurance and customer satisfaction and uniquely position these manufacturers in the industry.
SCX and SX Series
Boulder Imaging is implementing its SCX Series in-line surface inspection system for coated steel and its SX Series for polished, stainless steel. Processing will be configured for one and two-sided inspection of master coils, slit strips and cut-to-length blanks. Both systems also support aluminum and other rolled metals and transform the inspection process through the combination of technology, performance, data analytics and support.
