Optical online OPSS-1 porosity, permeability scanning systems for substrates

Patent pending DE 102.51.610.3 - China as well

Introduction A German-Thai-Chinese high-tech, engineering company has developed an optical online porosity or permeability scanning system. It works with two different multiple sensors units, i.e. precise line laser, colour sensors and internal controller unit for real-time positioning and porosity control in light transmission mode whilst scanning across the fast running webs up to 600 m/min.

The main advantage compared to existing technologies is the measurement of perforation zone/line positions and porosity levels in the same time while the scanner system across the running material web up to 2000 mm width.

Science, R&D, Universities, industrial partners for a licence agreement and / or technical co-operation are sought.

Working principle The porosity control of natural porous and/or perforated web material in laser or electrostatic perforation systems which are produced in speed ranges up to 600 m/min and web widths up to 2000 mm is difficult to measure with pneumatic systems because of following disadvantages: web tangency, web toughing, material flaking, formation of folds, dust and dirt entering the system.

These difficulties can be overcome with stationary or scan, optical porosity measurement systems for porosity ranges from 80 up to 5,000 Coresta units (ml/2cm2/min) respectively 3 to 50 l/m2/Sec. (Franksystem) by nano, micro or macro holes sizes from 0.5 up to 500 microns and hole densities from 10 macro holes per cm up to 400 holes per cm2.

The optical online porosity control technology is designed to scan perforation zones with a multiple sensor and their positions with a precision line laser to determine all data in real time with an internal controller unit. It controls roll material or bobbin formats, either as a stand-alone unit or mechanically coupled with existing scanning units which measure the material weight, thickness, opacity, density, brightness, smoothness, formation, etc.

By laser and electrostatic perforation in bobbins and wide paper web formats optical online control processes and their devices are indicated with transverse movements across the web and simultaneously collections of perforation positions and porosities by two different sensor systems.

Both measuring systems move transversely between 50 up 400 mm/Second over the fully web width. They consist of a line laser detect the quality and position of single holes, groups of holes or defined perforation zones into the measuring gap of 5.0 mm. At the same time, the multiple light transmission sensors monitor all porosity profiles and determines envelope curve and calculate the integrals.

Applications and Advantages Thus direct feedback into the perforation system makes it possible to compensate any changes in terms of porosity and perforation locations so that each jumbo production roll up to 25,000.00 meters as well single or quadruple bobbin sets can be produced and controlled without intermediate stops and certificated in quantity und quality on their end.

Natural porous or perforated web material as cigarette, tipping, plug- wrap, filter, packaging, non-woven, flees, coated paper as well micro or macro perforated plastic films as BOPP, LDPE, PP, EVA, HDPE, etc. are controllable with the OPSS-1 scanning system.
