The name EVOLUTION chosen for the range of equipment illustrates the possibility given to the end to easily upgrade it with the latest algorithms developed by IRIS engineers. Glassmakers using IRIS machines can rely on the latest software version for their EVOLUTION machines at any time. All the new improvements for Evolution machines are retrofitable: software and hardware upgrades can be implemented on all existing machines.
EVOLUTION 1 is a stand-alone finish inspector enabling to detect faults such as LOF (Line Over Finish), blisters, stones, scaly finish, unfilled finish, overpressed and wire edge. Finish inspection is available as a stand-alone machine, but also as an option of EVOLUTION 5, a machine designed for base, as well as base stress inspection and mould number reading. EVOLUTION 12 includes 12 cameras for sidewall inspection and can be extended to EVOLUTION 16 by adding 4 additional cameras for stress detection.
IRIS has recently widened its range of products with the new machines Evolution Dim and Evolution Ultimate. Evolution Dim is designed for sidewall and finish profile measurement. This in-line machine measures diameter and roundness, verticality, article height, finish and external profile and its diameter with high precision. Evolution Ultimate inspects high quality perfume articles, tableware or cosmetic wares to detect low contrasted aspect defects.
EVOLUTION machines have already proven their enhanced capabilities on product as various as penicillin and pharmaceutical containers, Nutella jars, wine, beer, champagne and spirit bottles. Now with Evolution Dim and Evolution Ultimate IRIS proves its capabilities by inspecting cosmetics, perfume and high quality tableware too.
A subsidiary of the Wisetec Group, IRIS Inspection machines was established in 2002 to provide turnkey inspection solutions for mass-produced glass containers of any shape or colour, including wine, beer, liquor and Champagne bottles, pharmaceuticals and food containers. Over the years, a team of dedicated research and development engineers has evolved a range of camera-based, non-contact inspection equipment to match the industry’s demanding requirements and satisfy the needs of international customers.
In recent years, the company has introduced a series of important hardware and software refinements to create its latest EVOLUTION 12 and EVOLUTION 5 high definition machines, in addition to several standalone equipment innovations that address the precise requirements of luxury, pharmaceutical and cosmetic glassware producers. Since launching the HD range, more than 200 machines have been installed throughout the world.
IRIS Inspection machines success is due not only to the exceptional efficiency of the EVOLUTION machines range but also to the excellent service provided by IRIS engineers around the world. Thanks to a network of international agents and technical support centers, IRIS is able to assist all its customers worldwide. A reactive service team multilingual engineers(French, English, German, Spanish, Russian, Italian, Chinese, Portuguese,Thai,…) ensures not only installation and training but also servicing of the EVOLUTION equipment during the entire life cycle of the machines.
