Plastic manufacturing demands a number of compliance checks such as temperature control, color compliance, defect detection, dimensional uniformity and many more. To serve these quintessential operations, Bestech Australia has a wide range of sensors and solutions that facilitates non-contact measurement techniques enabling a wear-free operation. Multiple factors such as dimension, temperature, colors, thickness, etc can be measured and monitored with the help of these robust sensors.

  • Laser profile scanners
  • thicknessCONTROL measurement system
  • Eddy current sensors
  • Capacitive sensors
  • Color sensors

Inline colour measurement of injection moulding parts

Color compliance plays a major role when it comes to plastic injection moulding plants. As the pieces are extracted from the mould, the color of the product changes as it begins to cool. The conventional measuring system could only detect color change after the product has been cooled. This results in the wastage of the product since they become inappropriate to be taken for the next stage of production. Thus, an early detection of this color change is very important in this case in order to prevent the products from being wasted. Bestech Australia offers colorCONTROL ACS color measurement system...


Inline colour measurement of transparent film

In the production of transparent film strips, it is very important to monitor the color of each film to prevent color fluctuations and streaks during the production. Since these films are translucent, they require high-speed color detection in transmission. To address this situation, colorCONTROL ACS7000 by Bestech Australia offers an inline color measurement technique to provide high precision measurements. The measurement system is connected to a transmission sensor head (ACS3) along with a transmitter unit and a receiver unit. Even the slightest change in color can be detected at an early stage with this system that allows for modification in...


Defect recognition on kitchen worktops

In the production of kitchen worktops, surface finishing and perfect edges are the critical factors to consider for any type of material used in the process such as natural or artificial stone, solid wood and laminate, etc. In the case of using stone decor for creating a worktop, open joints can be formed between the top material and the sidebars produced by several factors such as foreign bodies, uneven distribution of the adhesive or unevenness when closing.  For inspecting these open joints, Bestech Australia provides scanCONTROL 2910-25 laser profile scanner that examines the open joints synchronously after bonding. The sensor...


Surface inspection of adhesive film

The plastic manufacturing industry has seen an increase in the demand for adhesive film in recent years. While fulfilling these demands, it is also mandatory to examine the surface well for depressions and folds, in order to keep the customer satisfied. Moreover, the occurrence of such faults in the film leads to wastage, making the film unusable. To cope with these problems, a laser scanner is used to evaluate a film for any defect along the total length of the film. The scanCONTROL 2910-100 laser scanner by Bestech Australia offers such measurement options for an adhesive film by traversing over...


Non-contact IR temperature measurement of plastic film

Different types of plastics are turned into thin films for various industrial purposes. Due to the difference in their properties, the temperature measurement of these films must be performed in different spectral ranges. Also, the temperature measurement of these films is a very difficult task due to ambient radiations penetrating these films and hence distorting their intrinsic radiation.  Bestech Australia offers a non-contact measuring system for carrying out such difficult measurement tasks by introducing thermoMETER CTP-3 and CTP-7 pyrometers that detect the infrared radiation emitted by the plastic films while neglecting the penetrated ambient radiation. The pyrometer is selected depending...


Marking detection on cosmetics bottles

Companies that manufacture CNC screen-printing equipment to be used to print on a variety of containers made from plastics, textiles, ceramics, or glass witness high demand for color sensors. Not just for the purpose of color measurement but for testing, detection, and positioning tasks as well. Particularly, it’s crucial to determine the exact position for printing when printing on semi-transparent glass-ceramic bottles. Here, a space-saving solution is offered by Micro-epsilon’s color sensor colorSENSOR CFO100. This sensor helps to detect the embossment on the bottle that works as a reference mark for identifying the exact printing position. If the sensor does...


Inspection of polycarbonate sheets

In the plastics industry, thick sheets of polycarbonate are manufactured by extruding strands of a thermoplastic material. The raw material is pressed into long, thin strands and then cooled. This is followed by cutting the endless belt to size. Since different grades of sheets can be produced depending on the properties of the raw material, the color intensity distribution of these sheets must be checked. Micro-Epsilon gets this job done quickly and accurately with its colorSENSOR CFO200 combination sensor.  The inspection sensor measures the color of the surface to detect color differences in every sheet. In case, if any deviation...
