At NPE2012, Agr International Inc. introduced the Pilot Vision, a vision-based inspection and quality management system for PET containers.
Pilot Vision works in conjunction with today's high-speed reheat stretch blow molding machines to detect random defects during production of PET bottles. It mounts inside the blow molder, giving 100 percent inspection
It can inspect up to 100,000 bottles an hour.
An open architecture allows for simultaneous management of up to six cameras. They are typically configured in four inspection stations: preform inspection in the oven area, bottle seal surface and bottle sidewall inspection of bottles up to 16 inches tall.
Agr is based in Butler, Pa.
