Plastic Bottle Wall Thickness System

Plastic Bottle Wall Thickness System

The Online Plastic Wall Thickness Measurement System (WTS) by GP Resources, LLC (GPR) is a new real-time wall thickness measuring system designed specifically for plastic bottles and containers. The system is installed on an existing conveyor downstream of a blow molding machine for 100% product inspection. The WTS reads thicknesses of each container in desired locations and stores the results in database. The results are displayed instantly on charts providing immediate feedback information for machine operator to quickly adjust and optimize blow molder settings after changeovers and during daily production.
