AROL GROUP will be at PPMA TOTAL SHOW, the leading UK trade show for processing and packaging machinery. This year, more than 8,000 visitors from a broad range of sectors and 450 exhibitors are expected.
From 1 to 3 October, AROL, FT SYSTEM, TIRELLI, and UNIMAC-GHERRI will be in stand H24.
FT SYSTEM will participate in the PPMA Group Industry Awards with the ROBO QCS system (Quality Control System), an in-line quality control system designed to perform a fully automated quality inspection and in-line monitoring of the entire capping and filling process.
Through a pick and place system, the ROBO-QCS withdraws the bottle from the line and inserts it in the measurement station to perform the following inspections: Filling volume, torque test, closing angle (Optional measurements: CO2 content analysis, internal pressure measurement, CO2 partial pressure measurement, CO2 percentage measurement dissolved in the liquid, angle application inspection).
After performing the inspections, the ROBO-QCS reintroduces the bottle in the line. Thanks to its integrated sampling system the ROBO-QCS samples for an individual filling valve and an individual capping head and provides real-time statistical analysis of production trends. The suite of technological tools integrated into the system provides a large amount of raw data that the software returns as usage data such as capping and filling performance and CP and CPK [Capability Process Index], ready to be used for optimizing the filling and capping process, scheduling targeted corrective actions and the "predictive" maintenance. The ROBO-QCS can be easily installed into an existing bottling line, without additional conveyor belts or accumulation tables, and has a very economical footprint.
