Sodim's SODISCAN-MWS is a capsule filter rod and cigarette analyzer whose speed and precision far exceed anything currently available on the market. The integrated MIDAS sensor checks the position and quality of capsules at speeds of up to 75 filter rods or cigarettes per minute, each containing one to twelve capsules. This means it is six times faster than currently available solutions.
One for all. SODISCAN-MWS is suitable for all formats from super slim to king size. It enables symmetrically and asymmetrically arranged filters to be checked with maximum reliability. Parameters for different brands can be saved allowing parameter changes to be made swiftly at the touch of a button.
Optimized quality control and batch checking:
- An extra check. The monitoring system not only checks to ensure the required number and position of capsules in the capsule filter rods and cigarettes, but also whether each capsule is adequately filled and undamaged. Defects due to damage caused during conveyance or hair-line cracks in the product often cannot be detected until 24 hours after production. Additional quality inspection using SODISCAN-MWS thereby offers an unrivalled level of quality assurance.
- Reliable statistics. The monitoring system’s high inspection speed enables you to produce meaningful statistics showing the proportion of filters in a batch of capsule filter rods or cigarettes that contain damaged capsules or no capsule at all. Since SODISCAN-MWS performs at high speed, it is the ideal device for laboratory as well as production environments, where quality control of several thousand filter rods needs to be sampled and checked daily.
- Better production results. The data produced by SODISCAN-MWS can be used to fine-tune the capsule filter maker to ensure optimum production setups. The high speed enables to measure a large sample number and to react quickly if production deviates from your specifications.
