UK-based inspection system manufacturer FILTEC has introduced a hot melt adhesive inspection technology to ensure the strength and integrity of packaging.

The Thermal Glue Inspection solution is designed to help minimise product damage during transport caused by not using the right amounts of hot melt adhesive on cartons and product cases.

The solution integrates thermal and vision technologies to make inspections more accurate and precise.

It identifies and rejects non-compliant cartons and cases, sorting defect patterns for reporting and maintenance.

The Thermal Glue Inspection solution will help businesses avoid case ruptures and reduce the costs of carton rework labour and materials on product packaging.

The solution also features an automated inspection camera that can be changed for new cartons and can also scan for dates and lot codes. According to FILTEC, this makes production lines more efficient and delivers a return on investment with every use.
