Texplorer core

COMVIS Texplorer™ is state of the art image acquisition software for surface defect inspection of (industrial) fabrics, webbings and other woven and non-woven materials. Thanks to years of continuous development of powerful image and data acquisition and deep learning algorithms, our software is capable of capturing the smallest defects and flaws at full production speed. Texplorer™ image processing core is supported by various applications, such as Defect Analyzer, Texplorer Manager and Protocol Editor

  • Improve the quality of your fabric
  • Prevent and avoid the repetition of specific defects
  • Reduce (labour) costs
  • Logging inspection and defect data
  • Increase production speed
  • Remote control and service
  • Advanced and customer based export methods
  • Synchronization with SQL databases
COMVIS Texplorer Manager

The core of COMVIS Texplorer™ is the quality measure tooling. It detects defects and deviations in your product. It gives you tools to determine end product quality. It starts with the detection of edges. This can be done automatically by software, or manually by the user. Once detected, the surface can be inspected. For instance, on edge deviations like filaments, dents or abbreviations. For the inspection of the surface of the fabric, several tools can be deployed to find dye spots, stains, weft and warp defects and all other deviations and flaws. Multiple LC’s are managed via 1 LC Manager (LCM). Of each LC a live camera image is viewed on the monitor. An LC can consist of one end window, but also for example two ends per camera (front and back of fabric per camera).
