PCIS fits in your packaging line and protects your reputation for quality with fast, cost effective, 100% inspection of your product. PCIS 'visualises' the contents of closed cartons and verifies that what should be there, is there. In the correct quantity, and correctly packed.

PCIS is a flexible technology and has been used successfully to reliably detect a very wide range of defects.  Please contact us if you have a requirement not listed above.
Detection Systems Logo How Does PCIS work?

PCIS uses a safe, patented scanning technique using low energy electromagnetic fields. It is therefore safe for plant operators and products alike. No specialised shielding or safety measures are required.

PCIS is a superior inspection technique which, unlike conventional methods such as weighing, provides you with incredible accuracy.
Detection Systems Logo Key advantages of PCIS

FAST No speed vs accuracy compromise.
No inherent speed limitation.
ACCURATE Reliably detect 1 item missing from 48 or more
Find missing components such as toys, lids, or spoons
RELIABLE Minimal moving parts for ultra reliable operation
Industrial grade fanless computer
COST EFFECTIVE Miniscule running costs compared with Xray
Clients report PCIS soon pays for itself

In addition PCIS offers the following benefits
  • Detect one item missing in more than 48 per carton
  • Inspect every closed carton produced by your line, essential for those sensitive export markets
  • Inspect at high speed, yet maintain 100% inspection without slowing down production
  • Have complete security that the carton packing and sealing operations have not crushed or damaged products
  • Ensure that product lids and caps, are in place after carton packing and sealing
  • Increase the speed of your flow wrapping, bottling, cartoning and other operations using the real time information from PCIS as feedback to minimise reject rates
  • Cater for changes in your packaging strategies
  • Check products at a number of packaging stages ranging from individually wrapped items through cartons to shippers
  • Change over to other product inspection requirements with the intuitive, easy-to-use System Software
  • Slot in the Closed Carton Inspection System taking only 700mm line length
  • Avail yourself of instant technical support via the System's Modem and a telephone line
