Benefits of automation and digitalization in glass packaging quality control
Dimensional control of glass containers on sample basis is still carried out, by many manufacturers, with go-no-go or manual gauges.
This approach is expensive in terms of manpower required and, most importantly, does not allow to collect data.
Real time data collection and analysis is crucial to timely detect process deviations and trends and to improve quality and efficiency of the manufacturing process.
Automation and digitalization are the challenges that glass containers manufacturers will have to face necessarily, in the near future, to remain competitive.
