Piramal Glass has recently ordered Evolution camera-based inspection equipment for its Kosamba glassworks in Gujarat, India.

Manufactured by Iris Inspection machines, the order comprises two Evolution 12 and two Evolution 5 machines for base and finish inspection (pictured), which will be used for the on-line inspection of pharmaceutical vials.

Installation is scheduled for early 2016.

Piramal Glass has been successfully using Evolution equipment for sidewall inspection for three years and has been pleased with the operational results achieved, leading to the plant reinvesting in Iris equipment.

Area Sales Manager, Sonia Podleiszekova has represented Iris Inspection machines in India since 2013, as well as representing the company’s interests in North, Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and the CIS countries.

Ms Podleiszekova confirmed that the latest generation Evolution inspection technology sold to Piramal Glass features improved image resolution and display, as well as upgraded computers.

The Evolution range now has an upgraded PC, bigger HD touch screen (21.5in), new HD cameras and innovative software.

The high-resolution cameras are now 400% more powerful, providing sharper and more accurate images, as well as an improved discrimination between different types of defects (e.g. small stones and blisters), a better definition of container shapes and dark glass inspection capabilities.

They also feature higher dynamics in terms of noise interference, thereby improving the quality of image provided.
