INTRAVIS: 3rd International User Meeting

What will Plastic Packaging of the Future look like?

Third time is the charm: At the International User Meeting, Aachen will once again turn into the center of quality inspection for the plastic packaging industry. INTRAVIS, a leading German producer in the business, invites customers and partners from various nations to meet at the Pullman Aachen Quellenhof Hotel again. Not only the latest developments in vision inspection will be showcased but participants will also talk chances and challenges of the future.

An ongoing challenge of the business is to adjust the products to the current legislation on national and European Level. Important elements of these are regulations about recycling and contaminant emissions. Another trend which has become more and more important in this regard is the increasing plastic bag ban in retail business. How does the plastic packaging industry handle this and what legislative challenges are to be expected in the future? Prof. Dr. Appel from the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg (OTH) and manager of the PETnology trade fair, will give a speech on this topic, followed by a panel discussion afterwards.

International Exchange

„We are happy the International User Meeting is so well received and established in the business“, says Dr. Gerd Fuhrmann, CEO INTRAVIS. „It gives us the opportunity to share opinions, make new contacts and get inspirations from the speeches.“ The growing popularity expresses in numbers: Even weeks before the start, more participants than ever have registered. Moreover, the meeting becomes a venue for decision makers: Among the participants, representatives of Husky, Netstal and Coca Cola are expected.

New technological Developments

As a special highlight, INTRAVIS will showcase technological innovations at the meeting as well as on a factory tour the following day, contributing to solutions for tomorrow“s challenges. One of them will be the software IntraVisualizer which gives production data as clear graphics. Moreover, the different statistics of parameters as well as periods, shifts, batches and even single cavities can be displayed. The software also illustrates production trends which might lead to future errors and a substantial amount of false scrap. The user has the chance to readjust the production and avoid waste. Another innovation example is the all new developed LayerWatcher. It inspects layer thicknesses of opaque and translucent preforms, measuring optically and thus non-destructive.
