Peco-Inspx Announces Accurate Detection of Empty Pouches on High Speed Pouching Lines

High Speed X-Ray Can Accurately Find Any Low Fill or Empty Pouches.

SAN CARLOS, CALIF. (PRWEB) DECEMBER 31, 2018 - Peco-InspX announces today a high-speed pouch X-Ray inspection system that resolves the industry wide issue involving the detection of low fill or empty pouches.

Traditionally, finding low weight or empty pouches on high-speed pouching lines has required low-tech feeler gauges that simply don’t work very well, often completely missing low weight pouches that drive customer complaints.

Sampling approaches to checking weight can help spot trends, but don’t find problems immediately and therefore cannot prevent intermittent fill problems. 
The Peco-Inspx high-speed X-ray inspection system can inspect every single pouch on a high-speed pouching line and can operate at speeds up to 5,000 pouches per minute. These systems can electronically weigh pouches to +/- 0.5% of their actual weight and can detect empty pouches with absolute accuracy and no false rejects.

An additional operational benefit is that each inspected pouch can be mapped back to the corresponding filler pocket – making it incredibly easy to identify malfunctioning filler components.

“Any user of a high-speed pouch filler should take a close look at our pouch X-Ray system. The weighing capabilities of these systems can ensure 100% accurate fill, and eliminate product waste due to overfills and customer complaints due to low fills,” explained Rich Cisek, CEO of Peco-InspX.
