Product description

The P1 preform inspection system is an easy to use, accurate and stable industrial instrument that has been designed exclusively for measuring preform transmission values.

Due to its robust housing it can be placed directly next to the Injection Molding System to measure preforms periodically to detect changes quickly.

It has been designed to keep operating errors to a minimum. It has only 2 buttons and the reflection chamber has guides so it will be positioned the same way every time.

The instrument measures the amount of light passing though a preform from fully transparent to almost opaque. It is designed so it gets more accurate the more opaque a preform is. Almost complete opaque preforms can be measured, up to only 0,1% transmission

The P3 is designed for the plastic preform industry.


Small changes in transmission values are detected in an early stage minimizing waste and valuable production time.

Alternatively the instrument can be used to detect variations in transmission values due to preform position in the mold

-Guarantee your customers a high and constant colour quality.
-Very easy to use.
-No more human errors during visual inspection.
-Very robuste

Optional windows software

The instrument has an ethernet port which can be used to connect the instrument to a network or PC to transmit measured data for logging.
That way, PET Preform Quality data can be logged to a company database to make customer reports or lookup problems later.

There is an optional SDK (software development kit) available with a technical description of the protocol used and example source code of a simple c# windows software. This gives your engineers a fast start to add the data to your database or you can make your own software.

We like to help you get the quality tools you need. We make custom instruments for our customers if needed. The P1 gives a percentage of light of the full (visual) spectrum, if you need full color measurement or even full spectral data of your performs let us know. Or perhaps you are interested in the UV blocking of your preforms. If you have specific wishes, please contact us.
