After feedback from customers throughout the world since introducing its latest generation EVOLUTION glass container inspection machines at glasstec in October, IRIS has announced that 55 of these new machines have been delivered to glassworks in Europe, the Middle East and the Americas.
IRIS Inspection has received positive feedback from customers throughout the world since introducing its latest generation EVOLUTION glass container inspection machines at glasstec exhibition last October. To date, 55 new machines have been delivered to glassworks in Europe, the Middle East and the Americas, providing enhanced inspection precision that is easy to use and contributes positively to plant efficiency improvements.
The EVOLUTION range now provides better performance than ever, thanks to its new PC, bigger HD touch screen (21.5in), new HD cameras and innovative software. Within its newly designed processing unit, IRIS has reduced maintenance costs via the innovative design and assembly employed. There are fewer components in the PC itself and direct access to the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) is provided on the front panel. Improved cooling is another important feature. Essentially, the new processing unit is ready to accept future innovations and the specific requirements of customers.
The 21.5in high definition screen provides quicker accessibility to different screens, less switching between screens, the instant display of parameters, faster adjustments, quicker optimization and easier finetuning. The screen permits the full display of high resolution images taken by high resolution cameras, with no need for zoom, the genuine vision of containers and faults, better detection of small faults and an improved understanding of machine behaviour.
The high resolution cameras are 400% more powerful, providing sharper and more accurate images, as well as improved discrimination between different types of defects (eg small stones and blisters), better definition of container shapes and excellent dark glass inspection capabilities. They also feature higher dynamics in terms of noise interference, thereby improving the quality of image provided.
Fast, powerful and easy to use, EVOLUTION offers enhanced, precise inspection of glass containers. Retrofit kits are available for all existing EVOLUTION machines.
