miho Maxx is a Crate Inspection Machine that monitors and sorts empty crates in accordance with different criteria achieving a level of performance that exceeds any level reached up until now.
The main function of the miho Maxx is the differentiated and extensive sorting system of both crates and bottles. The crates are sorted in accordance with certain criteria defined by the user and are diverted to different conveyors. One of these conveyors is usually used for crates where the bottles are unpacked using a robot and they are controlled, sorted and distributed to the different conveyors by the miho Maxx.
The technical core piece of this very differentiated inspection system is the state of the art miho Vario Optic System, whose components, namely a camera, mirror and lighting system, operate on a flexible basis and in coordination with the special object being inspected. Up to 40 images are created by the miho Maxx for each crate, by using different perspectives and alternative lighting. This leads to a higher level of detection accuracy for the different crate and bottle features. The accuracy detection of bottle-material (glass or plastic bottles) and the bottle-type (plastic returnable bottles, non-returnable bottles, PET cycle bottles) has been increased to nearly 100% through the development of an innovative UV fluorescent inspection process. Even the detection of the shape of neck rings for PET bottles is now possible.
The radical and open modular construction of the miho Maxx does not only make maintenance and servicing of the machine easy but also allows the machine to be upgraded easily. The miho Maxx is therefore a high performance sorting and monitoring system that has a solid construction and is a secure investment for the future.
