Filtec Releases Auratec Pressure Detection Unit

filtecFiltec, an Inline inspection technology manufacturer, has recently released Auratec, a new pressure detection unit for can containers products that are made from glass and aluminium material.

The Auratec is a laser-based inspection system that detects pressure inconsistencies in glass and can containers. Using multi-point laser scanning technology, it is able to generate 3D maps of container surfaces, detecting pressure variations with extremely high accuracy, the US-based company said.

“Beneath its compact profile, the Auratec packs the powerful punch of a high intelligence machine,” said Leon Coetzee, VP product marketing for Filtec. “The Auratec stands out for its ability to produce powerful 3D assessments of the container’s pressure profile, at inspection speeds exceeding 1,200 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 ultra-high 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 standalone inspection unit or easily integrated with existing Filtec products.

Filtec was founded in 1968. The company is a top provider of in-line inspection solutions for the beverage, food, and pharmaceutical industries. Filtec has offices in more than twenty international locations.
