The PMD Profiler checks the correct orientation before another task, such as packaging, is performed. With a detailed profile measurement, for example the correct orientation of tablets prior to punching can be determined in the medical industry. Similarly, the alignment of lids can be checked before they are placed on yoghurt pots in order to avoid leaks.
When filling apple sauce, for example, it is important to check that the pot is completely filled.
For this purpose, the PMD Profiler determines the profile of the filled pot and detects any underfill (no sauce) or overfill (too much sauce).
