Under the name of Innocheck PPI (PET Preform Inspection) KHS GmbH is now offering a multistage preform inspection program which it has developed in house. This recognizes faulty preforms, finds foreign objects in preforms and detects the tiniest damage. The Innocheck PPI therefore assists operators with their quality assurance and helps to ensure a trouble-free, efficient stretch blow molding process with a detection rate of almost 100 %.
The German supplier of filling and packaging systems has been equipping its KHS InnoPET Blomax stretch blow molders in series III and IV with inspection devices for many years. This equipment detects errors and damage to preforms and containers. Around 40 % of all stretch blow molders are now fitted with an inspection system. With immediate effect KHS is now integrating its own Innocheck PPI preform inspection unit developed in house into its plant engineering. This supplements the Innocheck portfolio which also includes the successful Innocheck PCI PET container inspector. "In conjunction with our preform inspection unit this tried-and-tested system now forms a high-quality turnkey system. With it we're again boosting the product quality and ease of operation in the stretch blow molding process, whether with a new system or one retrofitted into existing Blomax models," explains Meike Schulz, Line Development and Product Management. The new Innocheck PPI preform inspector thus considerably improves quality during PET bottle manufacture.
