comvis vision inspection systems for seat belt webbing

COMVIS VIU™ is the standard single-end vision inspection system for seat belt webbing. It meets the high standards for automotive safety webbing. It is used in the make up area and/or directly after the dye range. The motor speed of VIU™ is dancer controlled. The system has a label applicator for physically labelling of defects or a group of defects.

Via the very user friendly interface, simple settings are made and inspection can be started and stopped. The HMI also contains counters for yardage and defects founds.

Camera #1
Detects most of the defects. Measures and detects width, edge and surface defects.

Camera #2
Detects surface damages, such as scratches, broken fibers and knots.

Camera #3 (optional)
Detects defects that are only visible under an angle, such as specific kind of stains.


COMVIS VIU #1 labels single or a group of defects. The fabric is physically labeled with a label applicator. Without the need of stopping or slowing down the production process.

Label defects with special ferrous barcode labels have multiple advantages. First of all, further in the production process, the labels can easily be detected by an inductive sensor. After detection you can stop the found defect on the manual inspection table.

Furthermore, with the barcode on the labels you are able to trace back the defect image(s). And finally, ones the textile is processed, you are able to anticipate on upcoming labels if you cut the textile in specific lengths. In this way, you minimize waste to nearly zero.

comvis FD3 sensor detects broken filaments on narrow fabric (for example seatbelt)


VIU#1 is optionally equipped with COMVIS Filament Detection Sensors (FD3). FD3 sensors are especially designed to detect radial- as well as edge on narrow textile up to 55 mm width. It meets the high industrial standards of seat belt / automotive industry.


The result: 100% inspected narrow fabric, minimum waste, maximum quality. Defects physically labeled and full defect traceability. Optimized for cutting protocol.
