Automatic In Mold Labeling (IML) Process Control Station
The quality control system and sorting of packaging manufactured by IML

In the manufacture of IML (In-Mold Labeling) packaging, defects such as offsets of the label position may occur. When it is necessary to guarantee that only compliant parts are delivered to the end customer, an automatic control of all the parts produced is essential.

QUALIMATEST offers QMTSort optical control systems, the specific version QMTSort-IML has been developed for the control of packaging produced by IML. This controls the presence, position, and integrity of the label on the outside of both lids and jars. The products are controlled at the output of the injection machine with a cycle time of less than one second.

The QMTSort-IML control system is integrated into the unloading robot of the injection machine in order to allow a 100% control and a high level of reactivity to possibly adapt the process in case of drift. It is suitable for multi cavity machines for lids and pots of any size.

The QMTSort-IML system is based on the QMT Vision Inspector platform. The easy-to-use user interface allows easy and comprehensible parameter setting of the system and product variants.
