Blank Inspection System
BlankWatch - Real Time Temperature Monitoring
The BlankWatch system measures real time different temperatures at the blank side of an IS-machine.
The BlankWatch system uses small thermal cameras which are installed at each section of the IS-machine. This unique feature makes it possible for the BlankWatch system to measure continuously and real time all temperatures at the blank side. The temperature measurements are very precise and exactly timed with the IS-machine timing.
By using the fixed cameras per section the setup time of the BlankWatch system after a job change is easily done in a couple of minutes.
Installed at the blank side of an IS-Machine the BlankWatch system provides real time information about:
- Mold Temperature
- Neck Ring Temperature
- Plunger Temperature
- Parison Temperature
- And many more..
The mold related temperature information is displayed in trend graphs together with the thermal images on an interactive Touch Screen. Warning and alarm limits can be set in order to inform personnel when the temperatures are out of the set limits.
With the BlankWatch temperature information cooling settings can easily be controlled resulting in constant temperature conditions, a requirement for a stable forming process.
