Intravis Inc. debuted its high-speed vision system for PET preforms at NPE 2015—the PreWatcher III.
Prewatcher III can handle up to 72,000 preforms an hour, using eight high-speed cameras. Three cameras cover the thread, the three cover the body. Two more cameras inspect the top sealing surface and the gate area.
In addition, a color spectrometer ensures precise color measurement.
Also at NPE 2015, Intravis highlighted its latest vision system to control quality of HDPE bottles. A total of 15 cameras provided a 360-degree, base and interior inspection.
Other show highlights came at machinery manufacturer booths. An inline SpotWatcher inspected PET jars being blow molded at the Nissei ASB Co. booth. And Intravis introduced its LayerWatcher for the first time at the booth of Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd., where the vision system gave absolute thickness measurements of the layers in PET preforms.
Intravis is based in Norcross, Ga.
