The Vetropack Group and XPAR Vision have strengthened their cooperation in the Hot End by installing a third IR-D unit at Vetropack’s Pöchlarn glass plant in Austria.  The Vetropack Group is one of Europe's leading manufacturers of packaging glass, with a responsibility towards the environment.

Collection centers at all production locations are operated to re-use recycled glass. Besides Austria, Vetropack has plants in Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Ukraine and Italy.

XPAR Vision’s Infrared Dual Camera (IR-D) systems are positioned at both sides of the conveyor belt, between the IS Machine and the Hot End Coating tunnel. In real time the IR-D inspects all bottles for critical defects and rejects them already in the Hot End phase.

By doing this, the IR-D inspection saves a considerable amount of lehr- and inspection time, creates a more consistent and better CE flow and results in a safer environment, both in Hot as in Cold End. At the same time, process information on cavity level is presented to the operators, allowing them to react immediately on any form of process or quality deviation.

Increasing services

 

Vetropack’s decision to install a third IR-D system in their Pöchlarn plant is part of the company’s strategy to commit to increasing customer expectations, by improving the plants efficiency and output. This includes Vetropack’s capabilities to increase services in production and just-in-time delivery and also ranging from first-class package design and production, to consulting and support services in the area of packaging analysis.

 

Fully committed

 

“We are proud to extend the cooperation to the Pöchlarn plant and we are fully committed to support their team through our proven Implementation Roadmap, to embed the IR-D’s into their daily operation”, says Michael Podgorski, on behalf of XPAR Vision responsible for Customer Relations at the Vetropack Group.
