Pulsar Engineering is part of the Pulsar Group, including also the operation and commercial facility in Green Bay – Wisconsin, USA. The company holds over 89 patents and patent pending in the world. Over the past years, Pulsar has focused its activities on the Tissue Industry, developing special machines and special automatic units, besides the proposal of handling and conveying systems, with the aim to generate tools, systems and software to cover specific customer needs and to increase the overall efficiency of converting lines.
In recent years, the Group has launched many innovative solutions dedicated to the Tissue Industry, focusing on the “Industry 4.0” concept for the generation of the “smart factory”. Since the manufacturing of wrapped and unwrapped Tissue products is subject to variations during production, Pulsar Engineering launched in 2015 the new Quality Inspection machine called Quatis, specifically designed for the Tissue industry. Since then, the quality of production was usually determined by measurements made by line operators on sample products, which were not able to ensure a precise and detailed inspection. Using the Quatis machines it is possible to check the 100% of the production flow, with measurement of the level of the quality obtained, according with the parameters identified with the customer. Then, non-compliances, at different levels, are detected and measured in real time directly on the conveying lines, with the possibility also to discard the products above the level of acceptance. Identifying the level of quality or the non-compliances means measuring the results of all the work performed by the machines along the line, then providing essential information about performances, efficiency and quality of the work carried out. As consequence, is possible to identify critical points or operations, with the possibility to improve the functionality of the line, increasing the availability and efficiency of the machinery.
Quatis is a unit composed by several cameras, illuminating lamps and PCs able to analyze the image of every single product passing on the conveyors. After having set up all the requested measurements and the percentage of sensibility (or the percentage of errors admitted), the products pass through the machine, while the cameras take multiples pictures and the software checks the compliance to the standards set.
