The flexible RETINÆ system for the dimensional and geometric control of glass containers of any shape, colour or symmetry.

Speedglass is the flexible RETINÆ system for the dimensional and geometric control of glass containers of any shape, colour or symmetry. Sophisticated recovery functions of optical deformation and composition in a single image of the acquisitions made, allow measurements taken at different heights to be connected as though the images were acquired in a single step. This function allows measurements to be taken that would otherwise not be possible by using traditional systems.

Speedglass can be configured for various requirements, from a single manual-loading station up to multiple automatic-loading stations connected to the default IT system. Speedglass is a scalable system. The dimensions vary according to the maximum diameters of the containers. The units of calculation vary according to the required speed performance. Measurement cameras and sensors vary according to the required measurements.

The application is used in the food and pharmaceutical sectors.

PRODUCT FEATURES

RESOLUTION, SPEED

The accuracy and speed of Speedglass is based on several factors:

  • High precision camera, illuminator and bi-telecentric lens system.
  • High-speed and low-latency industrial bus system for the integrated control of the cameras, automation and other measurement systems.
  • Vision motor produced specifically for the glass sector
  • Scalability of the software structure that allows parallel computing systems to be used
  • Simple calibration by applying an automatic procedure with a dedicated calibrator.

FLEXIBILITY 

Speedglass has an advanced programming system, which allows the advanced user to create their own specialised measurements. Speedglass also allows:

  • Total or partial height measurement
  • Measurement of the external dimensions of the object, such as: diameters, roundness, conicity and straightness of the label application surface, etc.
  • Special measurements on the finish of the object
  • Internal diameter measurement of the mouth (*)
  • Weight measurement (*)
  • Push Measurement

EASE OF USE 

Speedglass has an intuitive user interface, which allows the less expert operator to perform the programmed measurements rapidly and without requiring assistance.
The interface can be fully remote controlled and allows you to create groups of systems that can be controlled from single master stations.

Speedglass has a management of programming formats, measurement formats and batch management that can be easily customised according to the customer’s requirements.

APPLICATIONS 

Speedglass can be applied in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food sectors. In the pharmaceutical sector, a cleanroom version and the CFR21 part 11 regulation are optional.

DIAGNOSTICS 

Speedglass has an integrated diagnostic system that allows:

  • Full diagnostics from a remote system station.
  • A remote update system or via USB.
  • A remote input system of new measurement algorithms or via USB.
