Why You Need to Know About SealScope™ And Process Monitoring
As a business owner, you know that the quality of your seals determines the quality of your product. A leaking pouch can lead to a number of detrimental outcomes. Seals that are not airtight can cause reduced shelf life and consumer health hazards. These packages can also contaminate other packages and damage your brand image. Not to mention, poor quality seals could lead to a costly recall for your company.
Let’s discuss how adding SealScope™ inspection and process monitoring technology to your pouch packaging line can save and make you money, by improving your outgoing product quality and increasing your effective line output.
What is SealScope™?
SealScope™, brought to us by Engilico, is the first in-line seal inspection and monitoring tool that will not slow down your production. Using sensors on the sealing jaws combined with intelligent software, SealScope™ detects and rejects defective packages. These packages could have wrinkled seals or product in seal.
Additionally, it also continuously monitors your sealing process and notifies you in case of drift. Dirt accumulation on the sealing jaws, wear on moving parts, and clogging filling nozzles can all lead to drift.

SealScope™ can both be retrofitted to your existing packaging equipment and pre-installed as an option on new machines.

Using SealScope™ for Process monitoring will allow you to detect machine drift in early stages so you can take action sooner.

By keeping your process within its optimal settings, you will be able to effectively produce more, without sacrificing quality.
