What is it?
DIR’s SFM is the first in industry 100% in-line inspection system that provides:
1) Full monitoring of sachet sealing integrity and
2) Content monitoring of fill levels including identifying an empty or incorrectly filled sachet.
The SFM offers a quantum leap from sampling to monitoring every single sachet, enabling issues to be discovered and fixed in real time. The SFM is non-intrusive and does not result in production slowdown.
How does it work?
The SFM combines thermal imaging and sophisticated analysis algorithms to provide real time integrity analysis of every single sachet on the packaging line – at the speed of the machine throughput.
Inspection is “hands off”, non-invasive and non-destructive. Nothing is projected at the sachet; the SFM reads and analyzes the inherent heat signature of the sachet itself (which is amplified directly after the induction).
The SFM can monitor most laminated sachets and most contents: powder, gel, liquids, cream etc. Sachet line length or width is not an SFM limitation.
The SFM can be acquired as an integrated option in Mediseal sachet machines.
