Agr International, Inc. to feature their latest advancements in PET bottle production management and quality control at Pack Expo 2016

Agr International offers a number of products to aid bottle manufacturers achieve their most aggressive light weighting goals, while maintaining the highest quality. Agr products are designed to assist container producers, converters and fillers stay competitive while meeting the increased quality demands of today’s changing world. Agr staff will be on hand at Pack Expo 2016, Booth 8210, to discuss their latest developments in this line of products as well as their array of quality management and process control equipment for plastic containers. Products featured at this year’s event will include the following:

  • Process Pilot® --- The Process Pilot® automated blowmolder management system is designed to help PET bottle manufacturers measure, control and optimize their bottle blowing process in order to produce the highest quality, best performing bottles possible while maximizing production efficiency.  The Process Pilot system interfaces with the blowmolder to provide precise material thickness distribution on a per bottle basis, while managing the blowmolder to eliminate the effect of process and environmental variables that impact bottle material distribution throughout the production cycle.
  • CrystalView™ -- The latest enhancement to the Process Pilot product line is the CrystalView material optimization system.   The CrystalView system provides PET bottle manufacturers with the means for automatic management of material orientation/crystallinity.  The CrystalView system works in conjunction with the Agr Process Pilot blowmolder management system to simultaneously manage material distribution and optimize material orientation.   By doing so, material orientation is optimized over the entire bottle, making it possible to produce the best possible bottles, at the coldest practical processing temperature.
  • MBTxt – portable thickness gauging system -- Agr International will unveil its latest version of the MBT measurement system.  This compact device is capable of achieving extremely precise thickness measurements boasting a low range resolution of 0.1 ?m.  The MBTxt offers a number of advanced features including a greatly extended measurement range up to 25mm.  The MBTxt is ideal for for the intricate requirements of container measurement.  However, its applications are not limited to containers, as the MBTxt can be used to measure all types of non-ferrous materials up to 25mm thick.


Stop by the Agr booth to learn more about these products and the rest of their complete line of process monitoring and quality control equipment for the plastic container industry.  As an industry leader for over 85 years, Agr is committed to provide the plastic container industry with the most technologically advanced products available for quality control and productivity improvement.
