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.
The machine has been designed for the inspection of sidewall defects such as stones, blisters and inclusions, as well as deformations and verticality defects, plus the detection of uneven glass distribution in the base.
In addition, the Evolution Ultimate 4 machine can detect such transparent cosmetic defects as oil and lap marks, surface blisters, orange skin, tears and wash boards.
