Unique to the FleXinspect M, is the infeed delivery method of the machine. In normal operation, the infeed system (dual servo screw) extends over the existing single line conveyor and transports the bottles from the single line onto the integrated inspection conveyor. In this operation mode, each container is driven directly into the star wheel pocket at a 30 degree entry angle from the single line. The result is a smooth, precise container load - every time. In the bypass mode, the infeed assembly swings away from the single line and over the inspection conveyor. This allows containers to freely pass behind the machine for those customers who need bypass capabilities. At the same time, bottles can be fed into the machine from the inspection conveyor allowing the operator to work on the inspection setup or handling.
Originally designed as a replacement machine for existing layouts, the FleXinspect M can also be the right choice if you’re replacing the entire inspection area.
