Solutions for the plastic industries

Description

We provide sensors and solutions for plastic industries. The sensors are the perfect choice for system integrators, plant and machine builder. The solutions are turn-key system ready to install being made of measuring sensor, mechanical interface and supervisor software for data display and exchange.

Additionally, we have the expertise to design custom solutions according to specific requirements.

Our products

INSPECTION SYSTEMS FOR TUBES

Extrusion of plastic tubes for medical application requires a high level of quality and traceability. One of the defects that can affect the quality of tubular product is the non-uniformity of its thickness across the section, with negative consequences on the workability of the final product.

We deliver system to measure the wall-thickness cross-section profile and the concentricity; system can also be combined with laser caliper to measure the inner diameter and to feedback extruders.

INSPECTION ON MULTI-LAYER AND MULTI-LUMENS TUBES

Plastic tubes like foils are usually produced with complex multi-layered composition, where each layer have specific behaviour, like barrier layers. Additionally medical tubes can also have multi-lumen inner section that are controlled for within tolerance only off-line.
The solution is based on the multi-thick optical sensor for layer discrimination, scanning optics, mounting fixture and user-friendly operator interface.

SENSORS FOR FILM AND FOILS

The m-thick sensor’s family has been successfully applied in several extrusion plants, both cast or blown. The no contact, single-side and absolute measurement guarantees the highest accuracy in the thickness profile measurement; this makes the optical sensor the best measuring approach.

The multi-thick sensor’s family has been instead designed to detect and measure single layer thickness.

INSPECTION SYSTEMS FOR MEDICAL BAGS

Medical bags are obtained by welding two plastic films; the quality of the film and of the welding itself sets the functional performances of the bag and guarantees the seal over time.

The m-thick sensors can easily measure wall-thickness of the film and thickness profile of the welding band.

The multi-thick sensors allow the functional analysis, without contact and without destruction of the welding band to check for potential defects.

SOLUTIONS FOR PLASTIC PACKAGING AND OBJECTS

The applicability of m-thick and multi-thick sensors on plastic containers and objects have no limits.

The no contact and reflection (single-sided) measurement allows to measure objects with complex shape and in points where it’s almost impossible to measure without destroying the sample.

We’d like to mention some main applications being plastic pharmaceutical primary packaging (like the single dose container manufactured with BFS machines), medical membranes, devices and connectors.

Also PET preforms have been measured for wall-thickness and analysed for coating and single layer detection.
