PressureQCTM

Prevent crush damage and premature equipment wear. 

Measure squeeze load to optimize line transportation systems, inform maintenance decisions and reduce container damage.

Regardless of the container material - glass, aluminum or PET - packaging operations will benefit from monitoring pressure and correcting areas of concern. Actionable data can inform maintenance decisions such as lubrication and conveyor adjustments. Container damage from friction, particularly in aluminum cans, can also be alleviated. 

How the process works

Outfitted with pressure sensitive film, PressureQC™ smart sensor replicas are placed on the line to measure squeeze load. Location beacons identify where to take immediate corrective actions and prioritize maintenance tasks.

Pressure
Pressure

Alleviate damage from compacting containers by controlling external force measured in pounds-force or Newtons.

Spin & Tilt
Spin & Tilt

Control label and pressure damage by reducing degrees per second of container tilt and spin.
