The IMDvista PREFORM Factory concept 4.0 – reliability along the entire line

At NPE 2018 in Orlando, IMD concentrated this year on preform and barrier inspection systems, representing itself on its own stand in the bottle zone – a complete success. The IMDvista PREFORM Factory concept 4.0 for inline inspection and resorting, which was being shown in the USA for the first time with all options, aroused great interest. Especially because production reliability is becoming more and more important, many a visitor wanted to integrate the PECO LUX inline monitoring system into their PET lines as soon as possible, in order to have a complete overview of production quality at all times. PECO V3 is now even more compact and user-friendly and celebrated its American début at NPE. With a footprint of less than 7 m2 (including sorter), the PECO V3 can be incorporated almost anywhere for inline inspection or resorting.

Factory Concept 4.0

PREFORM Factory concept 4.0 guarantees the reliability of the entire production facility


“The Preform Factory concept is the right way forward! We must integrate the PECO LUX inline PREFORM monitoring system into all of our PET production facilities. In that way, every shot is tested and we can react immediately to any variations”. That is the way one exhibition visitor put it.  

PECO LUX fully integrated monitoring system for preforms

With just a few modifications, the PECO LUX can be integrated into all existing production lines without taking up any extra space. The IMDvista V5 software is easy to operate and gives a continuous overview of production quality, as well as any colour variations and issues a warning immediately if anything is running slightly askew. This means that production reliability is guaranteed. Every shot is tested. With PECO LUX, IMD is offering a monitoring system that is cost-effective to incorporate into all preform production facilities.


PECO V3 preform inspection system – compact like never before

Ideal for inline inspection or resorting. The US début of the new IMDVista PECO V3 at NPE showed that the new products were very well received. It has a very compact, yet robust design (taking up less than 7 m2 including the sorter), a high output speed of up to 90,000 p/h, cavity detection and easy product change without costly replacement of matched parts. This is a perfect test system for fully automated and optimised preform production processes in the plastics packaging industry, where the early detection of any impurities or faults is becoming more and more important.
