PIXARGUS ON-LINE INSPECTION SYSTEM HELPS IN SUCCESS FOR FLEXI-CELL UK
- Machinery & Equipment
FLEXI-CELL UK of Dukinfield, Cheshire, part of the Berwin Polymers Group recently installed an on-line inspection System from PIXARGUS to monitor the dimensional stability of precision extruded rubber profiles.
The non-contacting optical system provides a continuous 360° view quality check of the profile dimensions, monitoring the product within pre-set tolerances.
Generally invisible to the human eye, any non-conforming areas are identified, automatically cut out to avoid inadvertent inclusion in deliveries to customers and recorded on a continuously running log. Customers receive a batch-related copy of the log to verify the integrity of the extruded profile quality.
The PIXARGUS inspection system was a critical factor in Flexicell’s recent successful bid for supply of rubber profiles to a major European automotive component manufacturer.
Mr John English, Flexi-Cell’s Projects Manager said, “To gain this business, we had to work closely with our customer and demonstrate our experience and absolute commitment to consistent product quality. The PIXARGUS equipment, together with the high quality supply of compound from our Berwin parent gave us the edge we needed. Production volumes are now exceeding our initial expectations.”
PIXARGUS, based in Würselen, near Aachen in Germany is the leading supplier of custom-designed on-line inspection systems to monitor surface quality and product dimensions in continuous production processes
