What Is ScanINSPECT AFI Lite?

ScanINSPECT AFI Lite is a fully integrated, stand-alone inspection workstation for film, diazo, photo mask, chrome, glass plates, etc.

ScanINSPECT AFI Lite uses a PC Windows-based software package integrated with a high-resolution, A3 size flatbed scanner.


ScanINSPECT AFI is a software-only version of ScanINSPECT AFI Lite which imports un-calibrated standard TIFF or BMP images from any imaging platform (scanner, microscope, X-ray, etc.,) and offers geometry inspection capabilities.

Automatic Features

ScanINSPECT AFI Lite uses an un-calibrated image and performs an Automatic Optical Inspection detecting very small shorts, opens, mouse bites, pinholes, dust, and other defects using geometry inspection algorithms. The software creates a final inspection report identifying any errors. The system automatically creates an entry in the inspection log file after a report is generated.


Worried about the quality of existing films? Use ScanINSPECT AFI Lite to verify film integrity prior to production. The geometry inspection inspects features and problems smaller than the minimum trace/space width, down to 0.0003″ (0.008mm) at 4000 DPI.

These functions verify films for production errors, such as: opens/shorts, mouse bites, and pinholes. The system steps the operator automatically through all discrepancies of the verification results.
