Abstract
Zinc plates used in the lithographic industry must be free from scratches and meet a stringent specification on surface finish (scratches under .002 inches wide and surface variations in the range of 400 ± 20 grit). Mechanical Technology Incorporated has developed an automated industrial machine for inspection of these zinc plates as part of the on-line processing system for a zinc plate manufacture. This paper describes the application briefly and the inspection system in detail. The inspection system uses a non-contacting fiber optic system, optical-to-electronic conversion and signal processing electronics.
