The Problem

rPet preforms and bottles

Supporting the Way in Recycling

PET stands out as the most recycled plastic globally and is unique in its ability to incorporate high amounts of 100% post-consumer recycled content approved for food contact.
The legislation sets clear targets for recycled PET (rPET) content in beverage bottles at least 25% by 2025 and 30% by 2030. PET remains the only material capable of meeting this requirement, thanks to advanced chemical recycling technologies.

The Challenge for PET Preform Producers

PET preform producers supply their products to bottling companies that demand high quality at low costs. These bottling giants do not conduct quality assurance on the supplied PET preforms; instead, they return any preforms with quality issues to the producers. This practice significantly hinders plastic converters from extensively using rPET in preforms, but the legislation sets clear targets for recycled PET (rPET) content in beverage bottles at least 25% by 2025 and 30% by 2030.
Another major challenge is the color consistency of PET preforms, which can suffer from issues such as color intensity variations and incorrect color types. These problems often stem from unstable dye dosing, inefficient color switching, or mixing different preform batches.

Mavisol Solution

Pioneering Sustainable Solutions

Mavisol has developed an innovative machine vision and AI solution tailored for plastic converters to promote sustainable environments and efficient material reuse.
Our system facilitates the broader use of rPET in producing high-quality packaging, aiding the transition to a circular economy.

Unmatched Quality Control

Mavisol machine vision system is engineered for seamless installation on each molding machine within a factory, guaranteeing 100% online product inspection.
This advanced system detects and identifies "black specks" (contaminants appearing from rPET) and color defects in preforms. It meticulously logs and classifies all defective preforms, providing real-time data to operators and uploading this information to a secure data cloud.
