Profile and Defect Mapping

Fast, scalable roll mapping is at the heart of the RQMS application suite. RQMS was designed with the knowledge that roll quality data has time and position attributes. As a result, RQMS can efficiently acquire, archive and retrieve years of high-fidelity surface data.


Whereas conventional manufacturing software is designed (and licensed) around the concept of a scalar tag, RQMS provides unlimited array-based processing. Entire maps are stored as 2D arrays that can be retrieved and visualized in seconds.


RQMS client applications provide specific presentation formats for rendering profile and defect maps. In addition, the disposition engine can grade the quality of each roll based on profile and defect attributes.
