INTRAVIS with own booth at Fakuma for the first time

At this year's Fakuma trade show in Friedrichshafen (17 - 21 October 2023), INTRAVIS GmbH from Aachen will be represented with its own booth for the first time. Together with its partner Beck Automation from Switzerland, INTRAVIS will share booth A1-1509 and present an IMLWatcher integrated in a handling robot from Beck Automation. Furthermore, INTRAVIS will be present with additional IMLWatcher systems at other booths.

"INTRAVIS was already present at previous editions of Fakuma with different systems and partners. This year, we had the opportunity to have our own booth together with our partner Beck Automation. We were happy to take this opportunity, especially in the year of our 30th anniversary", according to Dr. Gerd Fuhrmann, CEO of INTRAVIS GmbH.

At its own booth A1-1509, INTRAVIS will present an IMLWatcher integrated into a handling robot of Beck Automation. The system inspects the 360° label of a bucket with only one camera. The IMLWatcher inspects the bucket for various inspection criteria: Label presence and identity, correct positioning of the label, print-to-cut and artwork offset, print errors at the artwork, contaminations as well as IML-typical defects such as blow-byes and defects at the label joint.

Part of a revolutionary appearance

An IMLWatcher will also be part of a revolutionary cooperation at Fakuma. Because: The companies ARBURG, Beck Automation, Kebo, MCC Verstraete and INTRAVIS jointly present a concept for the use of IML technology in medical applications. The combination of the strengths of the five partners has thus resulted in a comprehensive solution that fully meets the strict requirements of the medical industry. Visitors of Fakuma will be able to convince themselves of the key points and advantages of the solution at booth A3-3101 as well as in two presentations jointly held by experts of the partners on October 18 and 19.

Another IMLWatcher at Wittmann Battenfeld

Another IMLWatcher integrated into a robot from Beck Automation will be exhibited at booth B1-1204 of Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH. Its ten cameras inspect drinking cups out of four cavities. In addition to a comprehensive 360° inspection of the in-mold label, a check for short shots at the cup edge, and an examination of the inside of the cup for contaminations and blow-byes, this IMLWatcher also offers special software functionalities. These include a long-term image memory, extended cavity statistics, a warning threshold when a tolerance range is foreseeably exceeded, and extensive user administration.
