In all bottling lines, it is traditional to measure strength taking into account the internal pressure.
However, at Vidrala we have asked ourselves a question: What if we were able to rigorously and effectively measure impact?
We needed to detect the points
along the line with the highest impacts
We installed a sensor on to the prototype of the bottle that was being processed
We first calibrated
We measured accelerations and turns
Around the 3 axes
At different heights
We measured the impacts in IPS
We placed sensors along the line to measure each blow and identify where it occurred
We started to collect all the data in real time and display the results on a mobile device directly with the customer
We were faced with a specific issue:
With our experience, we perfected the reports and learned to read and interpret the results.
Now we know that all impacts count...
but not equally.
With a correct interpretation, we have managed to identify the risk level of a line and the risk of breakage.
NOW THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY,
YOU KNOW WHAT VIDRALA CAN DO FOR YOU
What can be measured
can be improved
