More than 200 applications in many different sectors of the paper manufacturing and converting industries worldwide have made DOMAS image analysis system a market leader. The new DOMASmultispec offers the possibility for recording, processing and analysing multispectral data collected by a scanner or camera, to supplement optical images.
The use of additional segments of the electromagnetic spectrum combined with novel image recording devices makes analyses of material samples possible from previously unknown perspectives. The fusion of image analysis data with chemical information creates entirely new possibilities for evaluation in the system. The focus on fibre-based materials enables additional applications in related industries (textile, wood). In future, the system will concentrate in particular on multilayers and composite materials.
The software has been designed as an open image analysis platform, thus making DOMASmultispec available to partners as a basis upon which to develop other applications.
