KS Control – innovative inspection, controll and bottle handling solutions for medium-sized breweries and bottling companies
Empty bottle inspektion
The XPLORER² Empty Bottle Inspector is a cost-effective alternative to the now outdated and unsafe inspection via transmitted light. Specifically designed to be planned into existing conveying systems, it meets all of the inspection requirements for single and full inspection of far larger, more cost-intensive facilities. Straightforward system integration ahead of the filling unit makes this empty bottle inspector perfectly suited for new plants and for plant modernisation. Should an empty bottle inspector exist and swing top bottles have to be inspected as well, the XPLORER² connected upstream is the cost-effective solution for a reliable full inspection.
Swing top bottle full inspector
The XPLORER² Duo Swing Top Bottle Full Inspector, an innovative new development from our company, gives brewers and bottlers the means to carry out a 100% hygienic, full inspection of all standard bottles, including swing top bottles, in a minimum amount of space.
Flexible in terms of pre-programmable bottle preselection and patented contactless clip positioning, maximum inspection safety is guaranteed.
Swing top bottle closer in a space-saving linear design
With CLIP’N’CLOSE linear design and patented contactless clip alignment, we are pursuing a new, cost-efficient path in product safety for swing top bottles. On the one hand, the space-saving linear design offers simple integration into existing filling lines, and on the other, the contactless clip positioning, with no touching of the rubber seal, ensures the greatest degree of safety in terms of hygiene, from bottle alignment right up to the fill head.
A 100% inspection of the swing top, including rubber seal – the CLIP CHECK fulfils this requirement for product safety cost-effectively and reliably in a confined space. Thanks to the patented, contact-free clip positioning, it is possible for the first time to present the clip, the clip head and the rubber seal as well free of shadow, the prerequisite for a 100% inspection of damage to the clip (or its absence), internal and external logo recognition, as well as inspection of the rubber seal for damage, colour or non-existence.
Camera-based autonomous fill level and cap check
This checking station for fill level and cap seating after the filler and capper is specially designed for retrofitting into existing bottling plants for disposable and reusable bottles.
Sensor-based autonomous fill level and cap check
This checking station for correct fill level and matching cap seating after the filler and capper has been specially developed for retrofitting into existing bottling plants for screw-top disposable and reusable bottles.
Camera-based container alignment for the labelling
In addition to standard equipment, individual design bottles with special label equipment aligned precisely to the cap or other marks are becoming the norm.
Camera-based label control station
For label control purposes – involving a check on the presence of labels and their correct positioning – we devise and construct individual customized control stations deployed either in the machine loop or as external control stations downstream of the labelling machine.
Sensor-based label control station
Label Control S is a stand-alone, sensor-based label control station for low-cost retrofitting into the transfer path downstream of the labelling station.
Automatic weight control of open and closed packages
KS Weight Control monitors the weight of filled packages such as the outer packaging of beverages, foodstuffs, pharmaceutical products and filled containers.
Pneumatic KS linear ejector
Thanks to its compact design, the multi-segment faulty bottle diverting system of the KS empty bottle and swing-top inspectors can be easily integrated into existing plants.
