Evolution Bottling and Packaging Solutions,providers of quality, innovative equipment, are in the process of formalising their collaboration with internationally renowned supplier of advanced inspection systems, Logics & Controls.

The Evolution BPS product range comprisesMBF for all types of rinsing, filling and capping machines; PE LABELLERS for all types of labelling machines; TMG for Depalletisers, Palletisers, Case-packing machines and all end of line machinery; Robino and Galandrino for all capsuling and wirehooding machines.Evolution Director Colin Clelland highlights “The inclusion of state of the art inspection systems into the Evolution fold is an exciting development for our portfolio and we are delighted to be able to offer our customers solutions with the innovation and quality provided by Logics & Controls.”

Evolution BPS has had an informal relationship with Logics & Controls since 2005, but in this development Logics & Controls have endorsed Evolution BPS as their partner in the UK & Ireland market.

Logics & Controls have over 30 years experience in the design and manufacture of in-line inspection and control systems for bottling, food, pharmaceutical, perfume and detergent sectors. Their product range starts from empty container inspection, and goes through the fill level check, correct closure check and correct “clothing” check, up to checking the weight of the carton. Logics & Controls are renowned for their capacity to develop bespoke checks for customers specific needs.

The Logics range fulfils the Evolution reputation for provision of innovative solutions, in particular they have identified that the bottling sector has some unique needs that traditional standard cameras only partially solve. The technology employed by Logics & Controls uniquely enhances the camera with a series of special optical units that revolutionise the camera inspection of empty bottles and full bottles. This means, for example, that even for long neck bottles the bottom of the bottle is completely visible for inspection and can identify defects or foreign bodies down to 1mmx1mm. Additionally, the unique optical technology means Logics offer the only system, Logilook, which can fully inspect label quality using a single camera, not dependent on the bottle’s orientation, therefore directly acquiring the complete bottle exterior in a single image. This system will locate and read bar codes, lot codes, label codes, and other graphical markings, printed in both inkjet and laser down to minute scale. Writing, images, and backgrounds of different colours or tonalities can also be verified precisely.

Testament to their premium quality, Logics& Controls technology is extensively adopted in the Champagne sector, demonstrating its suitability for all products that require a high degree of product integrity combined with visual perfection. Accordingly, in addition to the traditional inspection and level control systems, Logilook is increasingly being adopted in the UK by premium brands across the drinks sector.
