INTRAVIS live at Pack Expo – Brand new Technology attracted many Visitors

What a show! One of the leading American fairs in plastics packaging – Pack Expo – has closed its doors. Once again, INTRAVIS successfully took part in this major event. As a market leader in the supply of vision inspection systems to the plastic packaging industry we showcased standard inspection equipment plus the entirely new OptoSonix® technology.

“It was a tremendous success,” says Andreas Mueller, CEO INTRAVIS Inc. “We are happy to having displayed proven vision inspection technology as well as innovative new inventions. This mixture has attracted many visitors.”

Brand new scan technology

The big highlight of the show was definitely OptoSonix®. This newly developed scan technology offers the opportunity for the first time to inspect extrusion blow molded bottles and containers for presence, position and thickness of layers in a detailed and comprehensive way and above all: non-destructively. Instead of determining the layer thickness at one point only, the technology provides an entire network of measurements and therefore a detailed description of bottle layers.

As a classic INTRAVIS inspection system, the SpotWatcher® was also showcased and drew many visitors. This system inspected the full exterior of extrusion blow molded containers for material and production defects. It performs a full 360° inspection of each bottle using up to 15 high-resolution cameras ensuring detection of any possible defect. In its standard configuration it inspects bottles for material defects such as material contamination, burn spots, pin holes and color smears with speeds up to 20 bottles per second (1200 bottles per minute).

Visitors from all over America

Both exhibits were of high interest for existing and prospective customers. Andreas Mueller draws a positive conclusion of the show: “Our booth was extremely well visited. It surpassed our expectations. We noticed a significant number of visitors from the entire country, but also from Central and South America. They took a close look at our innovations and even purchased systems right at the booth. That was very encouraging for all of us!”
