The system inspects the entire EVOH barrier layer without destroying the packaging. It detects holes and thin areas in containers, cups, single-serve capsules and closures.
The BarrierWatcher inspects non-visible EVOH barrier layers of finished products for irregularities. Special cameras detect differences between the barrier layer and the support material. Thus, the packaging will not be destroyed during the inspection process. The barrier layer of containers, cups, single-serve capsules as well as closures can be inspected.
The BarrierWatcher is available as a laboratory system with manual feeding or as an inline system integrated into the production line. When used as an inline system, the BarrierWatcher identifies defects and correlates them to the specific cavity. This way, the operator can easily localize faults on the production machine and perform a targeted maintenance. As an inline system, the BarrierWatcher can be configured to all current production rates.

Hardware, software, service and training provided
Thanks to the inspection, enjoy the security of having the barrier layer in every object.
Detect thin spots in the barrier layers of your objects directly inline.
Identify objects with holes in the barrier layer - without time-consuming manual inspection in the quality lab.
The system detects holes and thin areas in the barrier layer with a special measurement procedure. Smooth as well as structured areas can be inspected.
Thanks to the IntraVision software, the system is easy to use. The collected data is presented in comprehensive statistics, diagrams and reports. In this way, you keep the overview over your production quality.
At an object diameter of 50 mm, the inspection accuracy is 1 x 1 mm.
The inspection speed is up to 10 objects per second. An idle time under the camera of 300 ms is necessary for proper vision inspection of the barrier.
The BarrierWatcher inspects for presence and detects holes and thin areas in barrier layers.
