Additional inspection systems boost Wiegand-Glas operations

Post Time:Aug 19,2008Classify:Glass QuotationView:488

Worldwide glass container producer Wiegand-Glas has added more of Emhart Inex’s MiniLab inspection systems to its existing fleet of measurement technology equipment.

The long-standing partnership between the two companies enabled Wiegand-Glas to use Emhart Inex’s MiniLab glass container measurement technology shortly after its introduction.

Features of the MiniLab include a non-contact, camera-based platform that is able to test more parameters at higher speeds. The system uses high-resolution cameras, precision optics and a data interface package that outputs cavity-correlated measurements.

Emhart Inex markets the MiniLab as ‘a complete sampling solution’ due to its ability to handle two different containers simultaneously and automatically. Managing Director of Wiegand-Glas, Oliver Wiegand, added: “Another benefit of this system is its flexibility and quick changeover.”

The product’s technology is also capable of inspecting Wiegand-Glas’ range of glass styles, including flint, amber and green glass in a variety of shapes.
