JLS: Automatic leak detection system
See it at PACK EXPO, Booth #N-4912! Suitable for packages that contain a brine or juice such as hot dogs, sliced luncheon meats, and sausages, JLS Automation’s PIVT (Package Integrity Validation Technologies) system utilizes vacuum, vision, and other sensor technologies to detect seal contamination, leaks and pinholes that lead to the loss of package integrity, at line speeds of up to 160 packages/min.
The particular technology or technologies implemented is highly dependent on the nature of the package. PIVT will be demonstrated on JLS’ Osprey robotic case packer.
With the PIVT system ROI is accelerated as a result of increased productivity, labor savings, and the ability to get more salable packages out the door in a shorter period. One customer has gained a 30% increase in productivity with a 67% reduction in packaging line labor, according to the company.
Future iterations are targeted at cheese and bacon packages.
