ZF010059 - Photocell checking the preform presence at the machine infeed

Machines: SRHP

Benefits: Efficiency increase - Technology update

This upgrade consists in the installation of a retro-reflective photocell instead of an ultrasonic sensor.

If compared to ultrasonic sensors, the retro-reflective photocell ensures a perfect detection of the product without the risk of overlapping some products, since this photocell is not disturbed by interferences caused by the machine rotation.

The new system enables quicker timing and more precise control cycles.

Minimum requirements:
Available in all machines, independently of the series.


- Quick detection and guarantee of correct detection of preforms of different colours
