In-line quality assurance

Heuft – hall 8 booth 104

An empty bottle inspection that reaches a new level not only in glass-in-glass detection; a full bottle inspection that identifies glass splinters, foil, or mould in the beverage more reliably; a high-precision high-speed empty can inspection; a label inspection with new teach-in; and a truly gap-free inspection of tethered caps on disposable PET bottles – these are just a few of the developments presented at the Heuft stand, with a central emphasis on AI-supported image processing technologies for enhanced detection reliability and a significantly reduced false rejection rate, exemplified by the Heuft Reflexx A.I. X-ray images are smartly de-noised with this so that even smaller splinters become visible during the pulsed glass-in-glass inspection. Glass thickness variations are compensated for by the AI. During optical in-line inspection, it not only filters out harmless objects such as drops on the bottle, but even makes visible what is hidden behind them. And also realises, among other things, full coverage in top-down inspection of empty beverage cans, as well as a novel teach-in for immediate start-up of new brands in label inspection.

Numerous intelligent QA technologies which are claimed to realise a higher detection accuracy with a lower false rejection rate – such as the Heuft Reflexx A.I. drop filter, the smart approach for the complete inspection of tethered closures or the innovative Multi Color Image Processing (MCIP) – will be demonstrated at special enlightenment stations on the Heuft stand.
