Working in conjunction with a reheat stretch blow molder, the Agr Process Pilot blow molder management system proactively manages and maintains container material distribution at a specified thickness; it continuously monitors every bottle for material distribution, analyzing minute changes and adjusting 1 or all of the blow molder controls simultaneously to maintain predefined distribution levels. The system accommodates many types of environmental changes as well as preform preparation and storage conditions. Compensation can be made for temperature, moisture content and minor intrinsic viscosity changes of the preform to maintain a consistent process. The integrated vision inspection component can be configured with up to 6 cameras for comprehensive inspection of preforms and blown bottles for all commonly occurring bottle defects.
