DVLeather SRL was born after a Canadian company specialized in computer vision and an Italian expert in automation and transportation systems for the tanning industry, decided to combine their expertise.
The goal of this alliance has been to revolutionize the industry with a unique and entirely new approach. It is with this and the industry’s needs in mind that DVLeather SRL has developed new systems to improve the efficiency of inspection processes for leather, on performance and quality wise.
Combining traditional methods and advanced technology, DVLeather SRL created a real technological breakthrough based on computer vision and aimed at benefitting the tanning industry. These state-of-the-art technologies literally propelled the industry in a new era: LEATHER QUALITY CERTIFICATION 4.0.
The DVLeather Hide Scanner is able to detect,
classify and report the quality of each wet Blue / Wet White
hide according to the individual requirements
The automatic classification allows to improve the efficiency of inspection processes through:
• Fully automated recognition of hide imperfections and of leather classification
• Elimination of human made errors in the grading procedure
• Consistent grading results
• Objective vs subjective selection
• Increased productivity up to 6 hides/min
The System can be seamlessly implemented on existing production lines
Optimized for Crust
Optimized for finished leather
certifies the selection depending on:
• Type, dimension and location of the defects
• Number of defects detected in a certain area of the hide
• Shape and total surface of the hide
• Fully automated traceability and data storage
• Customization of the grading criteria
• Individually configurable Parameters
Images, grading, surface measure and defects for each individual hide can be retrieved from the database and used for Industry 4.0 integration
Integrate your Hide Scanner with fully automatic stacker.
Classify and monitor your inventory
just in time and paperless.
The market price of hides and skins varies considerably with the selection and therefore, an objective true value evaluation should be the highest priority for any sustainable leather making today. Value deviations by incorrect grading is the largest unpredictable economical risk for the tanners and manufacturers.
Manual inspections are highly subjective and there is no universally accepted grading system to describe surface defects. Defects that pass unnoticed generate an overestimation of the decisions that will increase the scrap rate downstream in the manufacturing process. On the other hand, all the incorrectly downgraded hides will eventually drive the buyer’s complaint rate down hence resulting in a potential loss of profit to the tanner.
The DVLeather Quality Certification System is the only one that allows an objective true value evaluation both for tanneries and manufacturers.
