Totalvision™ combines web monitoring and web inspection into an all-in-one event capturing system. With operators able to quickly pinpoint the location of breaks and defects at one workstation, line speed and product consistency are easily controlled. The results provided by Totalvision show up to an 80% break reduction and a 5% increase in efficiency.
With over 1000 systems installed in 35 countries, Papertech is the largest supplier in the industry not only for new systems, but for upgrades and integration with other web monitoring and web inspection systems including ABB, Cognex, ISRA-Parsytec, and others.
Papertech has consistently delivered results with 80% of our business coming from repeat customers. That kind of loyalty is earned by delivering not only outstanding service and support, but by supplying systems that provide operators with web inspection and monitoring tools that work. The TotalVision™ platform provides features common to both the monitoring and inspection functions such as:
- Instant download and video playback of all events, with the ability to view a multi-day history for detailed analysis of breaks and defects.
- custom installations and portable options for ease of use and access in the mill.
- Webview and Everclean camera housing technology to consistenty provide clear, high quality images.
With TotalVision™ synchronization, two-way communication is now possible between web monitoring and web inspection. This integration is triggered when the web inspection system detects a defect and sends an image directly to the web monitoring operator screen. This in turn triggers a real-time, same-sheet series of camera views right back to the furthest wet-end camera where the defect was first seen.

Total Cost of Ownership
Papertech believes that any company investing in a machine vision system needs to understand the true cost of ownership. This means taking into account the initial cost of the system plus the expense of keeping the system in service and operating at peak performance. Our calculation of this cost is based on a five-year operating horizon during which time all expenses including utilities (power & air), upgrades, service, and maintenance are taken into account.
Conclusion: The total-cost-of-ownership should equal the initial cost plus the cost of ownership over the active utilization period.
Total Cost of Ownership Comparison (1000s)
- Brand X
- Brand X
Papertech’s TotalVision™ has been specifically designed to minimize the total-cost-of-ownership based on the following:
- Use of non-proprietary off-the-shelf components results in lower cost replacement parts.
- Sourcing from reputable manufacturers ensures a reliable supply of thoroughly tested, high quality parts.
- Standard components help lower service costs by allowing mills to source competitively.
- Intelligent component placement: a minimum number of parts operate in harsh mill conditions while the balance of the system is operated in a controlled environment.
Result: The above results in TotalVision having the lowest cost of ownership in the industry over a 5 year period, and ensures a constant healthy return-on-investment. Most importantly this means that even if the initial investment cost of a TotalVision system is higher than other offerings the total-cost-of-ownership will be the lowest.
