Innovation & Technology Offer

A Polish company offers technology that enables to develop a quality control for liquids' packaging closures.

Country of Origin: Poland
Reference Number: TOPL20170703001
Publication Date: 2 November 2017

Summary

A Polish company has developed technology that allows for controlling the quality of closures of the packaging, you can control the packaging such as PET bottles, glass bottles, ampoules, glass vials, and others. Developed system is characterized by a more accurate detection of defects, considerably smaller dimensions, lack of moving parts, which reduces the failure rate and risk of downtime of a production line. The company seeks partners to cooperate via commercial agreement with technical ass

Description

A Polish company developed closure's control system for PET bottles, glass bottles, ampoules, glass vials, etc. The closure defects results from the closing technologies such as: twisting, crimping, crimping, and welding), from the type of packaging, or from the type of closure. The resulting defects can primarily affect the tightness of the packaging, also affecting the visual appearance of the product (i.e. cracks, smudges, scratches, tearing off the safety bar, discoloration.

The proposed technololgy uses a dedicated optical system in the form of a pair of mirrors with a specially designed shape that allow the bottom surface to be imaged, a lateral closure to the camera lens placed directly above the object being examined. The upper surface is observed directly. The mirror geometry of the mirrors allows 360 degrees of closure to be observed and allows for a smooth transport of products between the mirrors (this allows for high-throughput continuous production lines). Quality control of the closure can be based on only one image, and the subject fills almost the whole of the camera matrix, which greatly improves the effective resolution and detection of defects.

The company is looking for an industrial partners to further developed control system via technical assistance and commercial agreement.

Advantages and Innovations

Developed system compared to competing solutions will be characterized by a more accurate detection of defects. For customers it means reduction of return risk and quality control savings, considerably smaller dimensions, which allows installation on existing lines during modernization, and lack of moving parts limits the risk of downtime for the entire production line.

Stage Of Development

Available for demonstration

Requested partner

The company seeks partners among industrial entities, ideally manufactures of lines producing the packaging such as PET bottles, glass bottles, ampoules, glass vials, and others to cooperate via commercial agreement with technical assistance.
