A leading manufacturer of hot melt and cold glue adhesive dispensing equipment and quality inspection systems, Valco Melton, offers a diverse portfolio including electronic controls, high-performance pumps and fluid-handling equipment, for inline inspection.

Ravi Kiran, business director at Valco Melton says, “PackChek is an end-of-line solution, and can be integrated in the packaging line without space constraints. The automated packaging inspection system captures a thermal and visible image of every package.”

Hot melt sensors have been around for decades, but tight space constraints on packaging machinery have made retrofitting them into existing machines extremely difficult. Here, ClearVision's PackChek steps in as an end-of-line solution that allows easy integration in the packaging line.

Kiran sheds light on the defects found by the PackChek hot melt inspection system including missing glue beads, weak glue beads, crushed and torn or open flap, and misaligned glue beads.

The inspection system takes a thermal and visual image of every package to ensure that hot melt glue is applied in the correct location. Using the thermal image, it finds the heat signature of each glue bead, verifies its position, and displays a user-friendly image.
