Glass container producers Bangkok Glass and Pavisa have placed repeat orders for Iris inspection equipment.
Inspection solutions specialist, IRIS Inspection Machines has started 2013 on a positive note, generating repeat business from leading glass container producers in Mexico and Thailand.
Mexican group Grupo Pavisa first put its trust in Iris inspection technology in 2011, acquiring three Evolution machines for its Mexico City glass packaging operation.
Pavisa has decided to purchase three more inspection machines - Evolution 12 (sidewall inspection), Evolution 16 (sidewall inspection and stress) and Evolution 5 (base, finish, stress and mould number reading).
Much of Pavisa’a glass container output is geared to the needs of premium brands, especially in the cosmetics and liquor sectors. Many customers have small run requirements for packaging, a business in which Grupo Pavisa specialises.
Bangkok Glass Industry (BGI) has 64 Iris machines, including installations at its Ayutthaya production complex which was commissioned in 2010. BGI has selected Iris again for its on-line inspection solution for the Furnace 3 and Furnace 4 projects at Ayutthaya, ordering 16 Evolution 16 and Evolution 5 machines.
Ayutthaya is one of five factories operated by BGI.
