Agr International will present their latest products for quality management and process control for the packaging industry at Expo Pack, booth 3814. Agr products are designed to help container producers, converters and fillers stay competitive while meeting the increased quality demands of today’s changing world. Featured will be:
The Process Pilot® automated blowmolder management system, a unique product that interfaces with the blowmolder to provide precise material thickness distribution management and defect detection for PET bottles while offering hands-off blowmolder management and control. With the trend towards ever lighter bottles, the Process Pilot is the ultimate light-weighting tool. This system offers bottle producers the ability to aggressively light weight bottles to the absolute minimum while providing the confidence that material is distributed appropriately. The Process Pilot system makes it possible to produce consistent high-quality bottles on a 24/7 basis regardless of operator skills, environmental changes and preform variations. Some of the benefits this product offers include: overall improved quality with reduced variation in top load and volume, production efficiencies that result from eliminating the need for section weights as well as reduced scrap and lower incidences of downtime in the blowing operation or filling line due to quality issues.
The CrystalView™ system, Agr’s newest product, is designed to help PET bottle manufacturers produce the best bottles possible by optimizing material orientation as part of the blowing process. The CrystalView system offers a simple, reliable and hands-free means to optimize material orientation while maintaining proper distribution. The CrystalView system not only can improve bottle performance, but in doing so, makes it possible for bottle manufacturers to reduce processing temperatures by as much as 6 deg. C, and as a result, significantly reduce energy consumption.
