FleXinspect BC, B, C

FleXinspect machines can be supplied as independent standalone units FleXinspect B and FleXinspect C, or joined together as a combined machine, FleXinspect BC. FleXinspect is a reliable and uniquely configurable platform that easily allows additional inspection functionality and redundancy as required. The FleXinspect family provides unmatched modular versatility, value, and flexibility for glassmakers’ current and future requirements.

Comprehensive Vision Inspection

The proprietary design of the FleXinspect BC includes 360-degree wraparound lighting and patterned lighting for 100% sidewall inspection of containers to precisely pinpoint both opaque and transparent defects. Polarized lighting is utilized for stress inspection to ensure detection of defects that may be missed by conventional methods. When equipped with a mold reading option, the FleXinspect BC mold-correlates results from all installed inspections.
