Quantifeel©, from Smart Skin Technologies, is a world first – a system that can measure in real time all physical movement and orientation data of a bottle or other receptacle used in a filling and packaging line. Such data includes dynamic pressure, rotation, rotation speed, tilt and vibration. Excess dynamic pressure is one of the main causes of excess friction, damage to receptacles, system wear and tear, noise emissions and low equipment efficiency. The Skin Quantifeel© System wirelessly transmits real time movement data at specific positions in a packing line, providing a 3D breakdown of the pressure exerted on the surface of the receptacles that are being transported. It consists of a mobile sensor, a high-performance radio module and a laptop running the Quantifeel software. This mobile sensor is customised for each customer and each application to match the size and shape of the receptacle being used in the filling line. The system is easy to implement. It is ideal for permanent use as a quality control and maintenance tool, to quantify and check in real time issues with dynamic pressure and the movement of receptacles, and to determine any immediate corrective action that is required. Simple adjustments to the way in which receptacles are transported can greatly reduce the pressures they are subjected to. This can lead to various longterm positive effects in terms of material use, setup/changeover times and downtimes, noise emissions, efficiency and line and container utilisation, providing an attractive return on investment factoring in total cost of ownership.
