The Micro-Scanner

The Micro-Scanner measures visible dirt with the correct illumination and automatic thresholding according to Tappi Test Method T563 and ISO 5350-4 [no operator adjustments]. The Micro-Scanner also measures sheet formation quality, light contraries such as plastics (with reflected light) or pin holes (with transmitted light), and solid image print uniformity. Standard equipment includes a strip feeder and measurements with either reflected or transmitted light.

The Micro-Scanner was developed by FP Innovations (Paprican). It is a compact, multi-function, camera based digital image analyzer for measuring: 

∙ Visible Dirt (Physical and EBA) 

∙ Light & Dark Contraries in reflected or transmitted light 

∙ Sheet Formation 

∙ Solid Print Uniformity
