The Agent QC Top Load Sensor (AQC TLS) will enable managers to determine the exact crown and capping force required to ensure the integrity of filled containers, without the need for line shutdowns. As with all Sensor Wireless technologies, the AQC TLS operates in line with real product and wirelessly transmits real-time data to a handheld device used remotely by the operator. The unique patented design provides force sensor technology combined with an interchangeable replica container, engineered to meet the size and filling specifications of everyday brands.
Sensor Wireless Inc., a world-leader in Active Wireless Sensor Technology™ (AWS™) and provider of innovative sensor technologies, such as Agent QC™, used to reduce waste and monitor the quality of world renowned brands in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and transportation industries completed the commercialization of a new Top Load measurement device, to be used in calibration and monitoring of capping forces in bottling lines. Utilizing AWS technology from Sensor Wireless, the sensor device is expected to deliver a powerful mobile solution that can immediately identify production performance, efficiency and quality issues offering the data needed to improve line productivity.
Bottle capping & in line force verification: One major and common challenge in the pharmaceutical and food & beverage industry is capping after filling.. It is crucial to ensure proper capping force by utilizing improved servomotors and a settable cap mechanism. Although many systems come with the capability to reject the bottles having insufficient capping torque on line during production, reliable quality assurance programs and check points are still required to ensure that this happens and provide added quality assurance. Considering that some of these automated systems operate at the rate of 1200 bottles per minute, it is essential to detect, verify and fix any malfunction early on.
“Agent QC™ TLS and Active Wireless Sensor Technology™ (AWS™) will facilitate fulfillment of business objectives surrounding continuous improvement. Plant Engineers will be able to identify in real time root cause, improve line performance, improve quality standard, identify calibration requirements, and reduce and manage waste due to packaging damage and closure failure. The solution will facilitate recurring benefits to our clients with hands off remote reporting capacity”, said Wayd McNally, President and CEO, Sensor Wireless Inc.
This newest addition to the Agent QC family of wireless monitoring tools is part of Sensor Wireless’ planned release of a world class suite of wireless monitoring tools aimed at the solid container filling industries. Active Wireless Sensor Technology™ (AWS™) and Agent QC™ technology from Sensor Wireless are used by leading Manufacturers and Fillers in over twenty countries to identify problems leading to poor quality and waste due to handling and equipment calibration errors.
