Our inspections solutions are always designed to provide customers with the most fully automated ways of ensuring correct operation
SAN CARLOS, Calif. (PRWEB) April 10, 2018
One of the most critical elements of any foreign material inspection system is ejection – once a piece of foreign material in a food or beverage is detected, it is essential that the defective product be removed from the production line. While there are many excellent solutions for container ejection, none of these solutions provide 100% traceability for tracking discrepant products to ensure that each and every one of the proper containers was in fact removed from the production line.
Peco InspX, in partnership with Domino printers, is pleased to announce a rejected container traceability solution that prints unique information on each container that is targeted for ejection. This user configurable information is generated by the Peco InspX X-Ray system and is then printed via a Domino printer prior to the container being ejected (for example, a rejected container may contain a sequence number, a time stamp as well as an ejector reason code). Operators can then use this printed reject information to cross reference the physical rejected containers with the reject image library on the X-Ray machine. This review process provides absolute assurance that all appropriate containers were in fact removed from the line. At any point during the operational inspection process, Peco InspX X-Ray machines can signal to stop the production line real-time should any container fail to be confirmed as ejected, which may happen due to a loss of ejector air pressure or some type of jam that disables the ejector.
“Our inspections solutions are always designed to provide customers with the most fully automated ways of ensuring correct operation. While there has been considerable focus from the inspection industry on defect detection, there is substantial opportunity for improving ejection solution automation – our partnership with Domino provides a simple and cost effective way of ensuring total traceability for rejected containers,” remarked Peco InspX VP of US Sales Martin Lymn.
