P1 Transmission Instrument
Preform Quality Control
For measuring the transmission value of preforms, Colour Consult bv, Beverwijk, Netherlands, introduces the new P1 desktop instrument for quality control. The P1 preform inspection system is an easy to use, accurate and stable industrial instrument that has been designed exclusively for measuring preform transmission values.
The instrument measures how much light passes through a preform or plastic cap. From transparent (100% transmission) to very dark, almost opaque preforms (0,1%). Small changes in transmission values are detected in an early stage minimizing waste and valuable production time. Alternatively the instrument can be used to detect variations in transmission values due to preform position in the mold.
Due to its robust housing it can be placed directly next to the injection molding system to measure preforms periodically to detect changes quickly. It has been designed to keep operating errors to a minimum. It has only two buttons and the reflection chamber has guides so it will be positioned the same way every time.
The instrument has an ethernet port which can be used to connect the instrument to a network or PC to transmit measured data for logging. That way, PET Preform Quality data can be logged to a company database to make customer reports or lookup problems later.
