Air Logic Power Sys­tems (ALPS) has joined forces with Swiss com­pany IMD Ltd. to pro­vide the blow mold­ing in­dus­try with what it says is the first To­tal Bot­tle In­spec­tion So­lu­tion, com­bin­ing its leak test­ing tech­nolo­gies with IMD’s state of the art IMDvista Vi­sion In­spec­tion Sys­tems.

By in­te­grat­ing both leak test­ing and vis­ual in­spec­tion meth­ods into one ma­chine, the new To­tal Bot­tle In­spec­tion So­lu­tion pro­vides a range of qual­ity- con­trol checks, in­clud­ing the de­tec­tion of leaks, con­tam­i­na­tion, cos­metic de­fects, mea­sure­ment, oval­ity or other ma­te­rial is­sues. The com­bined, lin­ear sys­tem can be in­te­grated di­rectly into the pro­duc­tion line and en­ables con­tain­ers that pass the set cri­te­ria to con­tinue down the con­veyor, while de­fec­tive bot­tles will be re­jected into a sep­a­rate chute.

Michael Law­son, Com­mer­cial Di­rec­tor of ALPS said the com­pany can now of­fer cus­tomers an in­te­grated sys­tem con­tain­ing the lat­est tech­nolo­gies for leak test and in­spec­tion re­quire­ments. “The To­tal Bot­tle In­spec­tion So­lu­tion will save space as mul­ti­ple tech­nolo­gies can be com­bined in one ma­chine, en­abling blow mold­ing op­er­a­tions to be even more ef­fi­cient.”

Matthias Hermle, CEO IMD Ltd. said the sys­tem has unique self-learn­ing tools that makes it in­tu­itive and easy to use. “This re­ally dif­fer­en­ti­ates it from the other of­fer­ings in the mar­ket. As qual­ity con­trol in the plas­tic in­dus­try is be­com­ing more and more im­per­a­tive, we see great po­ten­tial for the fu­ture in our part­ner­ship with ALPS and an ex­cel­lent value for cus­tomers.”

ALPS (Air Power Logic Sys­tems) is rep­re­sented in Ocea­nia by HBM Plas­tics & Pack­ag­ing Tech­nolo­gies.
