INDEC Brochure

  1. 1. KOCOS - THE TECHNOLOG Y GROUP | WHERE PRECISION MEET S QUALIT Y INDEC. Vacuum InspectionKOCOS AUDENTEC GMBH [ EN ]
  2. 2. INDEC Test systems for the packaging industry Ensuring  that  products  meet  the  highest  quality  standards  is of paramount importance in food manufacturing. Vacuum  packaging  is  a  major  method  of  preserving  food  without    resorting to chemical additives. However, if the packaging is  defective,  foodstuffs  may  spoil  long  before  the  given  expiry  date. Vacuum  test  systems  developed  by  KoCoS  audentec  GmbH  are used throughout the world to check a wide range of con- tainers, such as bottles, jars and tins, in-line during the produc- tion process. Non-contact inspection reliably identifies defec- tive containers for automatic rejection. Highly reliable and easy to use, these processor-controlled test  systems are the first choice for many food manufacturers.2 INDEC.
  3. 3. INDEC vacuum test systems are turn-key  test  systems  for  100%  inspection within the production process. A sensor head  scans  the  closures  of  all  the  con- tainers which pass through on the convey- or and measures the cap panel deflection   which  is  dependent  on  the  vacuum  inside. The quality of the vacuum within a container and the leak  tightness  of  the  closure  can  be  assessed by comparing the measured data from the container  under  test  with  the  data  from a  golden  sample  measured  previously.   The INDEC vacuum test device is the central element of the test systems and consists  of  the  processing  unit  and  the control panel.The sensor head contains the measure-ment  electronics.  The  connection  cable is  5  m  long  for  flexible  installation  in   accordance  with  site-specific  require-ments.The connection unit is the installation interface of the vacuum test systems. The ejector unit consists of a pneumatic cylinder, a compressed air service unit and  adjustable holding brackets for the sensor  head and light barrier. 3
  4. 4. Two system versions for different requirements INDEC VA 100 and INDEC VA 200 are two versions of the test  system designed for different production speeds and handling  methods. INDEC VA 200 Optical sensor for any closure material and high production speeds The optical sensor head of the INDEC VA 200 test system can  check  containers  at  a  rate  of  up  to  1,200  units  per  minute.  This  sensor  can  be  used  for  closures  made  of  any  material,    including  composite  or  plastic  lids,  aluminium  foils  and    standard  metal  caps.  All  normally  dimensioned  closures  can  be measured with one and the same sensor head. INDEC VA 100 Inductive sensors for metal closures The INDEC VA 100 test system can reach speeds of up to 600  units per minute. Two inductive sensors are available for alter- native  use,  enabling  tests  to  be  performed  on  commercially  available metal closures of any conventional diameter.4
  5. 5. The optical sensor headNon-contact testingThe sensor head cannot collide with containers on the convey-or because of the large working distance of the sensor.Fast and easy format changeoverNot  only  does  the  optical  sensor  reach  high  test  speeds,  it also  has  the  major  advantage  of  providing  easy  handling,   especially  for  frequent  format  changeovers.  Because  of  the large  working  distance  of  the  sensor,  manual  adjustments  are not necessary when testing containers of varying heights. The system  can  be  set  up  at  the  touch  of  a  button  using  saved parameter sets.Automatic parameterizationwith teach-in functionIn order to react quickly to process events, it must be possible to alter parameters quickly and specifically.The  optical  sensor  head  features  a  user-friendly,  time-saving teach-in function. The control panel guides the operator step-by-step through the teach-in process. Object-specific test para-meters and operating data are generated automatically.The  instructions  are  so  clear  that  even  inexperienced  users have no difficulty using the teach-in function. 5
  6. 6. Modular system structure Thanks  to  their  modular  structure  and  many  configuration    options, INDEC systems can easily be adapted to meet a wide  range  of  different  requirements.  The  INDEC  test  device  is    always the central component of the test system. All cabling,  the  power  cable  included,  is  routed  through  the  connection  unit of the system. This makes it easy to replace components  or add new ones without having to disconnect existing cable  connections. The  connection  unit  provides  all  the  necessary  cable  inputs  enabling components to be connected directly without an in- termediate junction box. „Plug and play“ sensor swap INDEC  vacuum  test  systems  can  be  equipped  with  various  different  sensor  heads.  Sensors  can  be  connected  quickly   and easily by plug-in connection. The  system  does  not  need  to  be  shut  down  for  the   purpose  and  is  ready  for  operation  immediately    as no further intervention is required. Should  production  conditions  change,  INDEC  can  be  adapted  accordingly  by  fitting  an    appropriate sensor.6
  7. 7. Intuitive operationThe systems feature a robust membrane keypad and a high-contrast colour graphical display. All user controls are located on the front panel of the test device for good access and easy operation with a clear view of the process environment. Clear colour graphicsThe  colour  graphics  used  for  the  display  of  measurement  results  guarantee   optimum presentation and visual percep-tion of all information. Specially selected colours contribute to the clear design of the  user  interface.  Intuitive  graphical displays and symbols maximise clarity.Easy system accessAn  Ethernet  connection  is  provided for  carrying  out  system  maintenance and upgrades on site or via remote access. As well as being used for remote maintenance, this interface can also be used for the central collection of production data. The analysis and archiving of this data contributes to effective quality manage-ment. 7
  8. 8. Ejector unit compact and pre-assembled The components of the ejector unit are pre-mounted on a base  plate, ready for operation. The entire unit can be fixed directly  to the conveyor and is ready for operation as soon as connec- tions are made to the compressed air and electricity supplies. Because of its compact design, the ejector can be installed at  any point in the production line. The  ejector  unit  is  provided  with  pre-drilled  holes  enabling    users to integrate the ejector unit in the production environ- ment and install additional components themselves. The ejector and the holding bracket can easily be adjusted to  suit container dimensions.8
  9. 9. Optionsfor customised solutions and high flexibilityINDEC  test  systems  can  be  extended  very  simply  by  the   addition of various options. This means that it is easy to add to  the  functionality  of  the  systems  in  response  to  changing requirements. Ejector monitoringThe  function  of  the  ejector  can  be  monitored  continuous-ly  to  check  that  faulty  containers  are  ejected  correctly.  If no  movement  of  the  ejector  cylinder  is  detected  when  a   faulty container is identified, this is indicated automatically by one of the alarm outputs. Evaluationof external control signalsThe evaluation of external control signals makes INDEC test systems  suitable  for  a  wide  range  of  different  applications. The applications listed below serve as examples of the many   possible uses of this option:  n  Joint use of the ejector by external systemsn Integration of more than one INDEC test system or of    individual sensors, such as sensors for fill level inspectionn  Evaluation of a key-driven eject command to remove   containers for sampling 9
  10. 10. System synchronisation for variable line speeds INDEC  systems  can  be  synchronized  with  the  speed  of  the    conveyor when the line speed varies. A rotary encoder ensures  that  the  ejector  is  always  controlled  with  the  greatest  preci- sion. Both  the  start/stop  light  barrier  for  the  measurement  pro-  cedure  and  the  rotary  encoder  itself  can  be  monitored  for    correct functioning. Rotary encoders with a resolution of 100 and 1000 pulses  per revolution and with protection class IP68 or IP69K are  available for different drive speeds.10
