Currier Adds Vision Inspection Systems
Auburn, NY Currier Plastics is tightening their process control window by adding vision systems to their high output blow molding lines. Their overall processing performance is improved because the cameras are set to detect defects in the neck area which has the tightest tolerance.
“The use of vision as part of our process does not eliminate the need for human interaction, rather it enables the multi point inspection of a larger quantity of parts in a shorter period of time. This enables a faster response and greater analysis to assist the continuous improvement of our processes” says Steve Feaster, VP Operations. “We are using vision sensors or cameras to detect imperfections in the bottle or jar quicker than the naked eye-this is especially important to our clients in the health and beauty packaging sector.”
The custom molder is adding vision inspection systems throughout their facility to improve process control and monitoring as part of their continuing investment in the packaging market. The addition of vision systems will also help to reinforce the custom molder’s zero defects policy by detecting imperfections in the parts before they leave the facility.
Currier Plastics is located in the heart of central New York and has been custom molding for a variety of industries such as plastic packaging, beauty and cosmetics, amenities, household consumables, electronic connectors and medical measuring devices since 1982.
