Product defects affect all industries and can be a major headache if not caught before reaching the consumer. Although defects are often caught long before they reach the hands of consumers, they can cause major delays and even costly shutdowns. Many times, a magnified visual inspection can provide significant details to help sort out potential defects. However, this alone is not a fool-proof solution.
Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) has long been used as an informative in unknown material identification. Modern FTIR accessories combine visual imaging with chemical analysis to rapidly characterize and identify visual defects.
This webinar will begin with an introduction to FTIR and FTIR microsampling using affordable plug-and-play solutions that any industry can benefit from. Throughout the session, we will explore how to best approach visual defect identification using FTIR spectroscopy, and how the technique fits into your visual defect analysis toolkit.
Key webinar take-aways:
- Characterizing and identifying visual defects using FTIR and visual images.
- Choosing the best method of FTIR analysis for various visual defects.
- Understanding the cost and benefit provided by FTIR with visual imaging.
