Company

INTRAVIS GmbH was founded by Dr. Gerd Fuhrmann in 1993 and has been growing steadily ever since. Today the company is one of the world market leaders for vision inspection systems for the plastic packaging industry. It develops, manufactures and delivers turnkey inspection systems for manufacturers of closures, bottles, preforms, thin-wall containers and decorated containers. At INTRAVIS, only the most qualified engineers and technicians are employed. Many of them have received awards in their fields and are among the best graduates of their year. More than 190 employees as well as subsidiaries in Atlanta, USA and Shanghai, China in conjunction with several global service offices ensure worldwide customer satisfaction.


Application example: PREFORMS

INTRAVIS offers top-notch quality inspection systems for manufacturers of preforms to the plastic bottle, filler and converter industries. A comprehensive inspection is performed on each preform for all common defects with measurements being taken in the areas of the thread, body and gate. The systems can also read cavity numbers, which provides data for detailed cavity related statistics. Find out more about preform inspection in the application brochure or in the flyer about the PreWatcher III and the Sample-PreWatcher.

PREWATCHER III

The PreWatcher III inspects preforms for:

  • Geometrical characteristics such as length and shape deviations
  • Material defects
  • Color
  • Notches and holes in the gate
  • Defects at the sealing surface
  • Cavity numbers

Space-saving footprint. Cavity related statistics. 

The PreWatcher III is the most compact preform inspection system ever engineered by INTRAVIS. It is also the only system on the market with cavity number reading. With its footprint of only 8m², the PreWatcher III aligns the preforms gently by centrifugal force. Eight cameras ensure accurate inspection.


SAMPLE-PREWATCHER

Detailed Inspection

The Sample-PreWatcher inspects batches of preforms directly behind the injection molding machine for a large number of defect criteria - down to the last detail. Alternatively, the system can be used as a comprehensive, quick, objective measuring and inspection equipment in a laboratory.

The Sample-PreWatcher inspects preforms for the following criteria: 

  • Geometrical characteristics
  • Color
  • Scratches and notches
  • Material defects
  • Cavity numbers
  • Long shots
  • Sealing surface inspection
  • Contamination 
  • Weight
  • Defects at the gate area


Application example: CLOSURES

CAPWATCHER III

More raw data. Better decisions.

Six cameras, six megapixel. The CapWatcher III measures precisely every single closure produced in your line. This way decisions can be made more accurately.

The CapWatcher III is able to inspect up to 252,000 closures per hour thanks to the newly designed mechanics of the system. The handling is so safe and gentle that even the lightest closures will remain undamaged.


Application example: BOTTLES

SPOTWATCHER

High performance. High resolution.

The INTRAVIS SpotWatcher performs a 360° inspection of each bottle using up to 15 high-resolution cameras ensuring detection of all common defect types. In its standard configuration it inspects bottles for deviations like material contamination, burn spots and color smears with speeds up to 10 bottles per second. With optional modules, the SpotWatcher inspects even more aspects of the bottle, including contour, top sealing surface, thin walls, thread dimensions and base inspection.

The SpotWatcher inspects extrusion blow and stretch blow molded bottles for:

  • Holes
  • Flashes
  • Sealing surface diameter and ovality
  • Material defects
  • Handle folds
  • Choked necks
  • Burn spots
  • Bad cuts
  • Geometric characteristics
  • Color streaks

  • Contamination

  • Thin distribution of the container base and walls

BARRIERWATCHER

Makes the invisible visible.

The BarrierWatcher inspects non-visible layers of finished products with smooth or structured areas for irregularities. Special cameras detect differences between the barrier layer and the support material. Through reference image comparison, the BarrierWatcher is able to detect thin areas in the barrier layer.

The BarrierWatcher inspects for the following criteria:

  • Holes
  • Thin wall areas

Application example: LABELS

IMLWATCHER

Direct handling integration.

The IMLWatcher is specifically designed for the inline quality control of in-mold labeled products. It inspects multiple objects such as cups, lids and containers and all common label types including wrap-around and bottom labels. The system can be seamlessly integrated into the production line and supports the fastest cycle times.


The IMLWatcher inspects for the following criteria:

  • Label presence
  • Label identity
  • Position (horizontal, vertical, rotation)
  • Blowby
  • Wrinkles and bubbles
  • Label seam

LABELWATCHER

Perfectly designed, yet customizable

The LabelWatcher inspects the presence and position of labels on objects. Within one second it inspects up to 50 objects with two labels simultaneously. Moreover, the LabelWatcher is easy to operate: Within minutes it can be adapted to a new label.

The LabelWatcher inspects all labels for:

  • Presence
  • Position
  • Identity

Optional:

  • Folds and bubbles
  • Double labels (defect)
  • Batch code presence
  • Third label presence
  • OCR
  • Bar code/data matrix reading
