A machinery company needed a sensor able to consistently detect clear PET bottles at multiple points.
A leading manufacturer of labeling equipment offers high-speed shrink sleeve label applicators designed to process 800 bottles per minute. To maximize the machine’s performance potential, the company wanted to install sensors capable of consistent detection and output for high-speed bottling.
The rotary fillers dispense beer into bottles traveling at speeds of up to 900 bottles per minute. The company needed a solution capable of detecting spreader washers on the vent tubes as well as loose or missing tubes. However, the movement of the rotary filler and the wet washdown environment made close proximity deployments difficult and the range required for a remote solution could compromise inspection reliability.
