Rubber Consumers Demand Higher Quality

Since we have enabled manufacturers to deliver a premium-quality product, more rubber consumers are demanding higher quality bales from all of their suppliers.

ProSensus, a leading solutions provider for next-generation quality control, will introduce their BaleGuard inspection system at the International Rubber Expo, October 14th-16th, 2014 in Nashville, TN. BaleGuard is an advanced machine vision solution that automates 100% surface inspection for rubber manufacturers, enabling them to deliver only the highest quality rubber bales to their customers.

“In 2009, we custom-designed BaleGuard for a client in the rubber industry to detect defective rubber bales in their manufacturing process. Having achieved detection accuracy of > 97%, and following the installation of several BaleGuard systems worldwide, we are really excited to be introducing this product to the entire rubber industry for the first time,” said Marlene Cardin, Product Manager of BaleGuard. “Since we have enabled manufacturers to deliver a premium-quality product, more rubber consumers are demanding higher quality bales from all of their suppliers.”

The BaleGuard system is an integrated hardware and software solution that combines images from six camera angles, analyzes them using advanced statistical methods, and rejects off-spec bales immediately. Designed specifically for rubber manufacturers, BaleGuard ensures 100% surface inspection and detects defects as small as 0.5mm2.
