Quality Management Automated Blowmolder Measurement System
Agr International presents The Process Pilot – an automated blowmolder management system, that interfaces with the blowmolder to provide precise material thickness distribution management and defect detection for PET bottles while offering hands-off blowmolder control.
With the trend towards ever lights bottles, bottle producers have the ability to light weight bottles to the absolute minimum while providing the confidence that material is distributed appropriately. The system makes it possible to produce consistent high-quality bottles on a 24/7 basis regardless of operator skills, environmental changes and preform variations.
Some of the benefits this product offers include: overall improved quality with reduced variation in top load and volume, production efficiencies that result from eliminating the need for section weights as well as reduced scrap and lower incidences of downtime in the blowing operation or filling line due to quality issues.
A inspection solution for bottles and similar containers transported on a conveyor line is Opticheck. The multi-camera system offers versatile, comprehensive detection for the entire container including seal surface, sidewall, base and label defect detection as well as laboratory-precision finish gauging, all on the conveyor line. The inspector can be customized to meet the specific needs of a container producer.
