Inspect the unexpected

Product inspection

Our intelligent machine vision technology enhances lean manufacturing and quality control processes.  With unprecedented speed, accuracy and traceability, our inspection solutions solve the toughest challenges in a variety of industries including Architectural Products,Technical PaperCurrency and Banknotes, and Performance Coatings. 

Technology Delivery

Boulder Imaging provides turnkey inspection equipment. All custom solutions are designed and integrated in-house using the latest proven, commercially available components. This ensures reliability and the longest possible service life of components and inspection equipment. Vision Inspector, Boulder Imaging's suite of software solutions, is created and maintained in-house and leverages the latest commercially available sensors, servers, auxiliary inspection equipment, and facility interface needs. Project management, installation, commissioning, documentation and training for all installations are managed by Boulder Imaging personnel.


Boulder Imaging’s Architect solution enables high resolution inspection of architectural products, such as ceiling tiles, flooring, siding, and decorative laminates. In architectural product manufacturing, superior quality is increasingly critical as the sophistication and expense of finishes continues to evolve. Defects or production issues can be extremely costly,in materials, time loss, and in a manufacturer’s reputation.

Equipped with Boulder Imaging’s Architect surface inspection technology, architectural product manufacturers are poised to achieve 100 percent quality inspection of surface and color variances. Defects are located, classified and mapped as the manufacturing line runs at speeds up in excess of 400 linear feet-per-minute.  Results are available real-time and can be processed either in-production or at final inspection.


Boulder Imaging's Reserve inspection systems detect surface defects, non-uniformities, and characteristics in banknotes and security paper. We understand that each of our customer’s products is unique.   Proprietary substrates, security features and distinctive design characteristics play a critical role in high security banknotes. Identifying intended design features and manufacturing defects requires a thorough understanding of each.

With a comprehensive understanding of the banknote design, we select leading world class optical sensors, lensing and lighting to configure the inspection’s optical views in a way that accentuates defects. We utilize multiple, micron-accurate inspections at a single point in the production process to provide manufacturers with the ability to identify and correct problems in real time including issues with security threads, contamination, substrates, pinholes, foil, holograms, color and water marks. Frequently, multiple different views, including visible and IR spectrum, are required to fully inspect banknotes. The modular nature of Vision Inspector’s architecture allows any number of inspection views to be networked together to provide a complete inspection.

Coated products require complete inspection of finished surfaces to identify defects that could trigger rejection of product. Accurate and repeatable analysis of component ingredients is critical in the batch manufacturing process. 

Boulder Imaging’s vision inspection technology lab products replace human subjectivity in coatings quality assurance labs with objective, accurate data and highly repeatable performance. Surface defect detection with automatic classification of defects includes, but is not limited to, craters, resin seeds, solvent pop, and contaminants.
