BST Pro Mark has introduced the ProSleeve for measuring lay-flat sleeves used as label wraps around plastic bottles and food containers.
ProSleeve monitors and controls machines that produce the sleeves by using a high-resolution camera to measure the actual width of the sleeves as they are being made on a seamer machine. The system notifies the operator when the actual size falls out of specifications or begins to drift.
ProSleeve measures commonly used sleeve substrates, such as PVC, PET, oriented polystyrene and styrenic block copolymers. Elmhurst, Ill.-based BST makes web-inspection, guiding and control equipment.
