Testing Inks & Pens – Surface Tension Testing or Metal Cleanliness Testing The surface energy is one decisive criterion for the adhesion of printing ink, glue, varnish, etc. on many plastic and metal surfaces. It is given in mN/m (milliNewton per meter, currently valid unit) or in dyne/cm (dyne per centimeter, old unit, same numerical value). Apart from some exceptions the general rule is: The higher the surface energy of a material, the better is the adhesion of anything meant to be fixed to its surface. Reasons for a low surface energy on the one hand might be material specific. For example, many plastics show a very low surface energy and therefore need a chemical or physical treatment to achieve a good adhesion on them. On the other hand, contaminations of the surface (grease, oil, or finger prints) might be a reason for a low surface energy.

RDG / BarCodeAmerica.com is a leading manufacturer and system integrator of conventional 2D and the latest 3D Machine Vision Systems for product and package / labeling inspection. We provide Print Quality Inspection and linear 1D as well as 2D Barcode Quality Verification systems meeting ISO/ANSI standards. verification of barcodes. Solutions include conventional area based cameras as well high speed line scan based camera solutions for tasks like label and blister package web inspection.

Our 3D vision system solutions with laser projection allow for complete product inspection in the X,Y and Z axis and combining multiple units allows us to perform internal part inspections where even internal features can be measured and inspected where conventional 2D systems could never accomplish such tasks. This capability allows us to check internal dimensions on medical devices and virtually any type of part. Using 3D inspection systems we can not only inspect fixed parts that are constantly built to the same dimensions but we can also inspect food items in every axis and calculate their mass/weight at high speeds. We inspect baked goods, dough rolls, vegetables, fruits, candy, crackers and much more at rates exceeding 3600 items per minute on conveyors up to 48 inches wide with multiple lanes of product and no orientation constraints on the items on the conveyor.

Our web inspection solutions inspect webs running at speeds as high as 1500 FPM. We can provide in-line low cost vision solutions for thermal printing systems as well as high speed solutions for the fastest applications. The off-line barcode quality verification solutions we offer grade 1D and 2D symbologies, are GS-1 US certified, and we have true medical device and pharmaceutical grade IQ/OQs and test card sets to offer for validation of these systems. Our barcode experience dates to 1975.
