Inspection system measures shape and wall thickness of transparent plastic packaging
German optical inspection systems specialists MABRI.VISION has announced the launch of the new MV.SENSE b1i optical system. This new inspection system measures the shape and wall thickness of transparent plastic packaging. Performed on the process line at production speed, these non-contact measurements enable 100% inline inspection of multi-layered packaging material. The new system is based on the principle of low-coherence interferometry, which MABRI.VISION also employs on its MV.SENSE inspection platform. In contrast to ultrasonic systems, low-coherence interferometry systems do not require a coupling agent. Moreover, as only infrared light of low intensity is used, no radiation protection measures have to be taken. The company says that even the thicknesses of thin barrier films can be measured with utmost precision. The outstanding measuring accuracy of the system helps users to enhance process security and cut the material costs of their production.
This is an interesting new method that will help operators further reduce their packaging costs.
This has opportunities across the retail industry across Beverage, Food, Consumer Goods, Pet Care and Health & Beauty sectors.
