Paper Abstract

An automatic inspector and product data system was developed by Du Pont specifically for the needs of nonwoven fabrics. The system detects defects, classifies them into five categories at high web speeds, and generates roll logs and 24-hour production summaries to assist in production record keeping and improved product flow through the finishing area. Techniques based on multiple feature-extraction and pattern-classification theory permit detection and classification of defects in the presence of product noise.
