Empty Bottle Inspection (PET)

The modular design and flexibility of the INTELLISPECâ„¢ System can be adapted for internal and external installations to single- and two-stage blow molding equipment. Our inspection modules are generally integrated inside stretch blowforming machines such as Sidel, Krones and KHS. The advantage of integration inside the blow molder is the ability to correlate defects with specific machine components. When installed externally on adjacent material handling lines, a conveyance system is inserted in-line with the existing belt or air-veyor to ensure proper positioning and orientation of the container for the inspection process.
