The strength of Pressco’s scalable, modular platform lies in its ability to deliver a wide range of inspection options across an entire blow-fill line. In the blowmoulder, Pressco offers a combination of camera modules which detect defects on the preform and/or the empty bottle, including virtual section weight measurement which is vital to process control. On the filling side, Pressco’s solutions include a multi-camera system for filled bottle inspection to detect mis-applied closures, tamperband defects and under/over-filled bottles. Additional inspection options may be deployed at the cap feeder, labeler, and date coder.
These inspection capabilities are controlled via a single centralized processor with one or more HMIs, which eliminates the inefficiency of multiple platforms from different suppliers. Pressco’s integrated system of distributed inspection means that one vendor can provide sales & service, training, technical support, spare parts, etc. on the entire vision system.
