The Solo is specially designed for the inspection of non-glass rigid containers.

The Solo Plus is part of Peco InspX’s family of advanced side-view X-ray inspection systems and is specially designed for the inspection of non-glass rigid containers (e.g. metal and composite cans, plastic containers and boxes).

The Solo Plus mounts over the customer’s existing conveyor and therefore offers completely non-contact inspection at linear speeds up to 233 meters (700 feet) or 2000 containers per minute.

The Solo Plus leverages Peco InspX’s proprietary inspection software to detect a wide range of foreign material and container defects (e.g. knock down flanges).

Finally, the Solo Plus is easy and inexpensive to maintain. Superior Peco InspX service ensures that you’ll have access to immediate support 24X7 and convenient local service when you need it.

Simultaneous Underfill and Overfill Monitoring

The FillTrac can simultaneously measure underfill and overfill levels.

Filler Monitoring

With the filler monitoring package, the Solo can track the performance of each filler valve in the filler and report out detailed statistics on its filling performance. The Filler Monitoring package supports both beverage and food fillers.

Seamer Sampling

With the automated seamer sampling option, the Solo provides fully automated sampling at programmed intervals. The system also supports on demand sampling.

Cocked/Missing Cap Detection

The cocked/missing cap sensor is an inexpensive way to ensure that containers are properly capped.
