For a variety of industries, it’s critical that packaging is secure to guarantee content usability. Thermal pouch sealing is a method for package sealing, using heat energy to melt plastic materials to form the seal or activate the adhesive to transform into a sticky bond. There are multiple heating methods for automated and manual sealing processes.
Thermal Pouch Sealing for Critical Packages Require Efficient Inspection
While some industry packaging applications do not require seal inspection, there are applications in the food, medical, and pharmaceutical industries that must have seal integrity without partially or weakened sealing. Not to mention a tiny opening that allows air to transfer in or out. It’s vital that critical packaging ensures inside quality. With a thermal seal inspection system, you can better inspect for compromised packages.
FLIR Thermal Seal Inspection and Location are Key to Quality Seal Confirmation
With the integration of sensor and thermal camera technology, a thermal seal inspection system advances seal defect identification. One of our partners at Integro Technologies, FLIR, allows us to integrate thermal seal inspection technology to our customers in different industries with critical packaging requirements. FLIR has an inventory of fixed thermal camera solutions.
As the sensor detects the package, the thermal camera begins scanning for seal security. Finding the best location may require multiple position tests of the equipment to achieve the best visual inspection results.
Critical packaging seal defects can add up to unwanted losses in refunds and returns. Along with other thermal imaging solutions, our team at Integro Technologies is highly equipped to help your business integrate special imaging solutions with a thermal seal, machine vision inspection systems.
As your industry leader in machine vision across many industries, we have the expertise and the partners you need to mitigate package seal defects. Contact us for the innovation that is available for critical packaging inspection.
