Surf-i, a new device for measuring Washboard

In our efforts to provide the Corrugated Industry with monitoring systems we have developed Surf-i, a device that evaluates the surface of the corrugated board. Surf-i is an off-line device that in a few seconds measures and characterize the surface.

Our Warp-i System measures the global flatness (larger than the cm-scale) of the corrugated board while this new Surf-i System performs a surface characterization of the board (less than the cm-scale)  and focuses on what we normally refer to as washboard. Washboard is a property that not only affects the printing result but also the board strength.
