FILTEC Introduces AURAtec – Pressure Detection For Glass and Can

FILTEC has introduced the AURAtec, a new pressure detection unit for glass beverage and aluminum can containers. The AURAtec is a laser-based inspection system that detects pressure inconsistencies in glass and can containers. Using multi-point laser scanning technology, the AURAtec is able to generate 3D maps of container surfaces, detecting pressure variations with extremely high accuracy. The AURAtec accurately performs with nearly a six sigma margin detecting acceptable vs unacceptable common aluminum beverage cans.

Filtec2July2016“Beneath its compact profile, the AURAtec packs the powerful punch of a high intelligence machine,” says Leon Coetzee, VP Product Marketing at FILTEC. “The AURAtec stands out for its ability to produce powerful 3D assessments of the container’s pressure profile, at inspection speeds exceeding 1200 containers per minute. The system is not affected by container positioning variances on the X, Y, or Z axis, thus being very tolerant to normal production line conditions. The AURAtec obsoletes traditional analogue or acoustic based technologies, replacing them with an ultrahigh resolution 3D vision solution that also excels in robustness and longevity.”

The AURAtec is available immediately for purchase, with first deliveries in the fourth quarter of this year. AURAtec’s advanced pressure detection system can be used as as a stand alone inspection unit or easily integrated with existing FILTEC products. For more information visit www.filtec.com.
