Manufacturers need high end quality inspection equipment – since many years Heye has the knowledge and experience in cold end technology. And Heye experts share this knowledge to their customers: Earlier this month, Glass International held a webinar on „Inspection in Glassmaking“, underlining the importance of quality inspection to improve efficiencies and reduce breakages. Heye’s Cold End experts Uwe Schitter and Menander Scheider presented the benefits of the new SmartLine 2:
- Faster job changes due to improved design & easier access
- Usage of existing tooling sets possible
- Enhanced user interface for better usability
- Full data connectivity & easy integration in to existing lines
- Outstanding reliable control to avoid downtimes
- Latest non-contact inspections
RANGER 2 – CAMERA CHECK DETECTION AT ITS BEST
Check detection is one of the most important quality inspections in container glass production.
The HiSHIELD Ranger 2 – integrated into the SmartLine 2 - is fully available in every country.
FULLY MODULAR AND SCALABLE SYSTEM
A recommended configuration would be four parallel systems, each dedicated to and optimized for one of the following types of checks:
Each system runs independently and does not need to be synchronised with the others.
INTELLIGENT CLOUD MASKING – SELF LEARNING SYSTEMS
Each Ranger 2 system is using Heye’s Intelligent Cloud Masking (ICM). Bearing in mind that each article is distinctive, the Ranger 2 system is designed to investigate each one independently. Accordingly, it is not necessary to teach the detection system, but each container serves as a time saving reference for itself. Moreover, the inspection zones are dynamic in nature. The Ranger 2 system is therefore able to detect different variations of checks, as well as to recognize new variations of them during production.
