The IMLWatcher presents your turnkey vision inspection system that is specially designed for the detection of defects arising in the production process of in-mold labeled packaging.

Your inspection system focused on in-mold labels

The IMLWatcher is the complete package for vision inspection of your IML-decorated products. Hardware optimally adapted to your production line is combined with software that is exclusively designed to detect IML-specific defects, thereby creating a turnkey and ready-to-use IML inspection system. The system guarantees a full label evaluation – by means of sharp, clear pictures even at high speed of up to 10 objects per second.

A huge range of software features facilitates your daily work. The Quick Reference Mode leads to particular time saving, since it allows for the automatic creation of a new reference during ongoing measuring operation within a few seconds. Morever, the clearly structured user interface promotes simple operation and offers new and advanced statistical functions. Thus, an extensive production analysis becomes possible.

FAQs about the IMLWatcher

  • The IMLWatcher is easily integrated into the automation robot of the injection molding machine. It consists of an electrical cabinet, a user operation unit as well as a set of cameras and lightnings. Therefore, the system is particularly space-saving and efficient. Alternatively, the system can also be integrated on a conveyor belt or any other kind of transport system.

  • No, it is possible to create a new reference during active measurement mode. The production line does not need to be stopped. It is even possible to directly compare the previous and the new reference to find out which one works better for your current production.

  • The IMLWatcher is able to inspect general criteria like label presence, label identity, vertical and horizontal position, print defects and contaminations. Moreover, the system is specially designed to find IML-specific defects, for example defects at the label joint line, blow-byes and short shots. Code reading is also possible.

  • INTRAVIS offers turnkey systems, worldwide support and training courses as well as comprehensive printed and digital information material for every system individually. After the purchase of the system, INTRAVIS does not leave the customer alone with the system. Service contracts offer worldwide support and service, even within 24 hours.
