In the packaging world, SACMI CVS is a valuable partner for the design of smart vision systems. ‘S’ as in systems, the set of mechatronic solutions that performs quality control on individual products, with the widest range of machines on the market. CVs as in software, which SACMI develops to build a true solutions ‘package’, configured according to cutting-edge usability and cybersecurity principles.
And from this perspective, the interconnection of systems is just the first step. The introduction of AI and deep learning techniques, in fact, is pivotal to giving machines autonomous decision-making capacity. These techniques are driving the development of systems tailored around the individual product being inspected: plastic polymers (caps, preforms, containers), labels, metal and so on.
Machines and vision systems. The opportunities provided by ‘integrated’ control
SACMI will be showcasing an array of new opportunities at Brau Beviale 2023 - HALL 7A 222/323. These explore the frontiers of applied AI for, on the one hand, the PET sector (IPS+PVS systems) and, on the other, metal container decoration and quality control (DMD+ECLIPSIM).
The first company to directly incorporate some of these inspection systems into its machine range (e.g. the PVS156 on the latest generation of IPS preform presses), SACMI combines unmatched production process expertise with vision systems that provide exact, meaningful information on the efficiency and effectiveness of the process itself, anticipating any deviations and aiding real-time correction.
This multi-material approach spans from the production of preforms and containers to caps and labels. It also extends to the metal sector with the DMD, the SACMI digital decorator for metal sheets, now offered in combination with ECLIPSIM DECO and various systems specifically designed to inspect can lines, such as ELIOSCAN (external decoration) and iCan for the inside and neck.
