Full container inspection for glass and PET lines

Friday, 28 August, 2009 | Supplied by: JW Industrial Instruments Pty Ltd


The Heuft eXaminer XO not only identifies solid foreign objects but also lower density contamination in filled, transparent bottles. The full container inspection system is equipped with optical and radiometric inspection technologies for this. Therefore, it is suitable for safeguarding product quality along glass and PET lines.

Minute glass splinters, small pieces of metal, fill tubes and other high-density foreign objects are tracked down by the eXaminer XO using X-ray technology. A specially developed belt drive aligns the bottles for this optimally at four different X-ray inspection stations.

The machine has been equipped with additional camera-based modules for inspecting the base and the sidewall in order to also find lower density contamination such as bits of paper or insects reliably. Even semitransparent and transparent foil and glass faults such as chipped bases or bird swings are identified by combining a bright field and a dark field detection.
