Surface Quality Analyser (SQA100)

The OCS Surface Quality Analyser (SQA100) is a high-tech tool for detecting surface irregularities in polymer films (tape) used in the wire and cable industry. The SQA100 uses a high-resolution CMOS camera to measure the height, base diameter, and diameter at half the height of pips with a resolution of 1 µm, and 10 µm, respectively. The SQA100 software allows users to define height and diameter classes and classify the measured pips accordingly. All relevant measurement results are clearly displayed and can be exported to all common file formats.

The SQA100 is ideal for testing non-transparent polymer films (tape) used in the wire and cable industry. It can be used to detect a variety of surface irregularities, including pips, scratches, and dents. The SQA100 can help manufacturers to ensure the quality of their products and to meet the requirements of their customers.
