highlights of the software

  • Server publishes image data and measurement values via web interface
  • Data are accessible via desktop or mobile device (tablet, iPad, etc.)
  • Fast display and updating
  • Continuous volume measurement of 100% of the cut gobs
  • Monitoring of geometry limit values
  • Weight monitoring and regulation for all processes including blow-blow where PPC is not usable
  • Monitoring of the gob shape and trend analysis

2 cameras in stereo vision setup

  • “Real 3D vision" through a large view angle
  • Monitoring "around the gob"
  • High resolution
  • Robust implementation
  • Water or air cooling
  • Protection against contamination of the optical inlet
  • Large distance from the gob
  • Flexible positioning of the cameras (different distances and angles)

image processing and 3D-model to determine important parameters

3D Model weight control

  • Gob weight
  • Gob shape
  • Closed-loop control
