Equipped with an integrated conveyor that can be readily connected into a production line, the PTI Seal-Sensor PQX fully automated pouch seal inspection and handling technology incorporates PTI’s Seal-Sensor Airborne Ultrasonic technology to automatically scan and inspect final pouch seals 100% online and non-destructively.
Seal-Sensor is a deterministic, quantitative, quick, and dependable approach that detects incomplete seals, partial or weak areas in seals, and a variety of frequent defects in seals that appear visually acceptable but contain problems that impact product quality, value, and shelf-life.
In less than one second, a single linear scan (L-Scan) of the pouch seal delivers a pass/fail result as well as quantitative, traceable data. At high outputs, a quick linear scan of the pouch seal allows immediate seal check/verification of seal quality. Data from tests is generated in seconds.
The Seal-Sensor PQX is a plug-and-play system that has a modest footprint and a full-screen HMI for displaying test result data as pouches are scanned. Inspection speeds can reach 350 mm/sec. A built-in reject chute removes flaws from the line. A built-in stack light makes determining pass/rail outcomes simple.
