Inspection and classification: Effective evaluation & distribution of raw materials such as polymers or flakes

Witten, December 2022: Pellet inspection ensures 100 % control during the production or compounding process. Many manufacturers in the field already offer the inspection systems as well as sorting units for the production of polymers. The pioneering inventor Thomas Alva Edison once said: „If there is a way to make something better: Find it!“. That is exactly what OCS have done. What is the benefit of detection, classification and sorting? Visit us worldwide at the leading trade fairs. With live demonstrations, OCS will provide the customers and visitors insights into the fascinating possibilities of this inspection and classification technology.

Classification of polymers – optimised product mix
OCS devices and systems not only provide the appropriate image processing system for inspecting such defects, they can also be classified directly on the basis of specific measurement parameters. Product quality begins with the selection of only high-quality raw materials and top-notch production materials. OCS Optical Control Systems GmbH has been developing innovative and efficient customer-specific solutions for quality control and assurance for more than 30 years now.
What is the benefit of sorting out contaminated material and how can we use this? Depending on the end product, product mixes can be used, for example, and the scrap can be used efficiently. customer, for example.

What are the advantages of direct online quality control with OCS measuring systems?
• Optimised product mix on the basis of precise results
• Optimisation of system flexibility through remix
• Significant shortening of transition times
• Possibility for direct intervention

However, also the sales team can use this qualified data to actively promote a certain raw material to their customers.

Digitalisation – Industry 4.0
For example, several options are available for data communication. Customer-specific data preparation and transfer as well as remote control (via communication protocol or digital I/O). Easy integration of external devices (e.g. colour measurement), OPC Server Industry 4.0, easy data transfer to CSV. Further interfaces can be implemented on customer request.
