TQ-LAB

Torus’ unique fully automated TQ-Lab simplifies your quality control process. Removing laborious testing and data handling processes, the TQ-Lab carries out all of the critical industry standard tests in one centralised system, all controlled by one interface. Bottles or preforms are loaded into a multi-module layout to suit customer requirements and are then transferred  between modules using an intelligent force feedback gripper and multi axis pick and place system. Offering non-contact and destructive tests on both empty and filled containers or preforms, Torus’ flexible TQ-Lab can deliver reliable data to the network with no operator influence.

B300 BOTTLE WALL THICKNESS GAUGE

The B300 Bottle Wall Thickness Gauge provides a factory calibrated solution to material thickness distribution, bottle height and base clearance measurements with unrivalled position, accuracy and repeatability. By turning the bottle upside down the confocal white light sensor can access the bottle base, eradicating historic and potentially dangerous sections weight checks. As the industry evolves a new level of quality control is becoming expected. Fast, accurate and reliable data can be generated and sent to the network without any operator intervention.

B303 BOTTLE BURST GAUGE

The B303 Bottle Burst Gauge provides pressure and volume expansion testing for plastic packaging containers. The bottle burst tester can be operated from a standard 6 - 7bar air supply verifying that containers meet minimum pressure capabilities and monitoring the rate of volume expansion. Further to this material yield points can be automatically detected offering a more detailed analysis of the container performance. This critical destructive test can be used in the laboratory or alongside production lines to ensure that containers meet industry specifications.

B304 TOP LOAD & VOLUME GAUGE

The B304 Top Load & Volume Gauge provides the worlds first in-line combination test for measuring vertical strength and capacity. Data can be presented numerically and graphically, creating a Max Load Vs Deflection signature as the 'live' bottle force is measured. A traceable batch setup function is provided for further blow moulder to cavity analysis. The test specifics adhere to ASTM D2659 Standards and offer selectable units of Force, adjustable compression speeds with a simple windows based programmable user interface.

B305 AUTOMATIC PREFORM INSPECTION SYSTEM

The B305 gauge is a modular system that can inspect and measure to find all of your preform defects. Each module can be selected by the customer allowing the configuration to suit your quality control needs. Dimensional measurements are calibrated automatically and can be traced to UKAS standards giving the user a full shot quality overview in approximately 15 minutes.

B309 INTERNAL DIAMETER GAUGE

Torus' new Internal Diameter Gauge for plastic containers and preforms offers non-contact internal diameter measurements in a single operation with industry leading measurement range. Tests are carried out using 4-axis motion control without the container being touched, completely eradicating any operator influence. The integrated vision package provides an intelligent neck centralisation function for a miniature confocal white light sensor to enter the container neck and carry out the measurement process. This offers our customers unprecedented improvements to accuracy and repeatability, whilst at the same time reducing the time and labour costs associated with common manual quality control checks. The B309 has the ability to measure internal diameters at multiple heights (from TOF), effectively mapping the internal diameter profile in a series of radial movements. The system can be supplied standalone or integrated into a multiple module Torus system.
