Texplorer™ CORE

Machine vision inspection software for surface defect detection

Texplorer™ CORE is the industry’s most powerful and modular inspection software for woven, nonwovens, (technical) textiles and other surfaces of continuous goods. Using a variety of state of the art image processing algorithms for detection of deviations in the surface and edges of materials.

Via the interface, cameras and illumination are configured, as well as inspection variables, edge- and width settings. Tooltips in the app quickly provide information about buttons and settings. All inspection settings, camera and illumination configurations are saved as an article.

COMVIS Texplorer™ CORE inspection software is hardware independent. Allowing us to directly anticipate on the fast changing developments in the market of cameras, illumination, computer technology and other machine vision components. This results in flexible, state of the art, high performance vision inspection systems.

General features

Inspection modules

Texplorer™ CORE inspection software consists of multiple inspection modules which can be activated or deactivated in a license. Each module is developed and optimized for specific inspection tasks. For example, finding small deviations in the surface or very large but low contrast stains. Other modules are strong in detecting filaments in the edge of the material or edge anomalies. Furthermore, Texplorer™ CORE contains modules for width measurement (relative or absolute).

Illumination settings

Within the Texplorer™ CORE interface, users can activate or deactivate frontlights and backlight and control the intensity of the illumination. Settings for illumination are saved into an article setting. Every time an article is loaded, the illumination will adjust itself to the correct setting.

Camera settings

Configure your cameras’ gain and exposure and save the settings in your article. Manage all cameras and camera ends in the same user interface.

Edge settings

Texplorer™ CORE automatically finds the edges of the material and let you configure offsets. Users can also choose to manually determine fixed edges. These settings are saved in your article.

OPC connection between PLC and Texplorer™ CORE

Load your article settings and start Texplorer™ CORE inspection automatically via PLC or HMI commands. (optional)

Spot graph

Analyzes tool which plots defects in terms of size and contrast deviation.


Mask certain parts of your surface manually to exclude it from being inspected.
