The Polish subsidiary of Heinz-Glas has taken delivery of its first non-contact inspection equipment from Iris Inspection machines in recent weeks.
Designed specifically for the inspection of perfume and cosmetics ware that requires the highest level of perfection, two Evolution Ultimate 4 machines have been installed on the flint cosmetics line in Dzialdowo.This follows the glassmaker’s acquisition of the first Evolution Ultimate 4 design for its Klein Tettau glassworks in Bavaria, southern Germany. Evolution Ultimate 4 is a compact version of the Evolution Ultimate non-contact inspection solution from Iris Inspection machines, requiring an area of one metre on the cold end conveyor, thanks to its innovative features. Both machine designs run the same software and inspection tools, in addition to which their hardware has been specially developed to limit maintenance downtime.
Subsequently, a diverse range of Evolution equipment has been acquired for the Piesau and Klein Tettau factories in Germany, as well as for the Heinz-Glas site in Lima, Peru.This includes combinations of Evolution 1 for standalone finish inspection, Evolution 5 base, finish and base stress inspection, with mould number reader, Evolution 12 sidewall and sidewall stress inspection and Evolution Ultimate machines for the detection of transparent defects in perfume and cosmetics containers.
