GP Resources, LLC (GPR), is launching its real-time thickness measurement system for the plastic bottle and container manufacturing market.

The GPR Wall Thickness System (WTS), based on a non-contact optical technology that enables measurement of bottles’ walls independently on both sides, is installed on an existing conveyor downstream of a blow moulding machine for 100% product inspection.
As containers pass through the WTS, it reads their thicknesses in desired locations and displays them instantly on trend chart. This shall provide immediate feedback for machine operator to quickly optimise blow moulder settings after changeovers and during daily production.

The WTS can be set to automatically alert operators with stack lights, and to reject containers that exceed specified thickness limits.
