BBULL MULTIKON EBI
Empty Bottle Inspection in New Dimensions
GENERAL
Empty Bottle Inspection BBULL MULTIKON EBI
With the empty bottle inspector MULTIKON EBI, BBULL introduce a device that combines complex inspection requirements from the glass manufacturing industry with the required high-performing machine technology required in the bottling industry. MULTIKON EBI integrates perfectly the advantages and requirements of both applications and offers solutions that present systems do not provide yet.
When developing this device, especially a compact hygienic design, user-friendliness, short change over times and the implementation of future-oriented pc-technology have been considered, without disregarding the standard requirements of these kind of an inspection systems.
As a result, the machine convinces with design, minimum space requirements and outstanding detection values, which eclipses other technologies.
Combined with the established BBULL reject and sorting systems and the huge competence in line automation, the BBULL MULTIKON EBI is a trendsetting and profitable long-term investment.
