SACMI Vision Systems in step with AI: intelligent quality control and 24/7 virtual assistance for the Rigid Packaging industry.

SACMI Vision Systems in step with AI: intelligent quality control and 24/7 virtual assistance for the Rigid Packaging industry.

The evolution of 'vision', from quality control to process control, systems designed to 'think' like a human being, providing immediate and useful information to even the most experienced operator. SACMI Vision Systems, the world's widest range of vision systems for rigid packaging in the beverage industry.

Caps, preforms, right up to the full, labelled container: today, SACMI systems are evolving under the banner of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning. This is achieved thanks to the new release of the CVs software suite, a set of tools that - in the name of interoperability, cybersecurity, and data availability anytime, anywhere - project quality control within a collaborative vision between man, machines and systems. 
In addition, the exclusive GILDA-AI, not a simple 'chatbot' but a real 'virtual colleague' ready to provide answers, further simplifies system management and troubleshooting.

Quality first, towards AI

SACMI, a global player in the packaging industry for seventy years, seized the opportunity from the early days of software engineering to complement its range of machines with the development of advanced systems to support quality control.
More recently, the radical paradigm shift in the digitalisation of systems has made these solutions not only a tool for quality control but also a strategic tool for making the production process more efficient.

The new CVs software suite

The entire range of vision systems for the rigid packaging sector is based on the SACMI software suite. This is the starting point of the development, an approach that meets the current needs of the market, due to the ever-increasing demand for these systems on packaging lines and, at the same time, the need to train operators in their use, making process data management simpler, more useful and more immediate.
In this logic, CVs (Computer Vision software) includes software (CVs23) integrated into the machines and common to all systems, the remote data logging and analysis platform (CVsWEB) and the Classy AI system that improves and simplifies system operation by automatically categorising the types of defect detected.
In particular, Classy AI revolutionises system management. In addition to the technical interface - which is always available - the solution presents a truly advanced dashboard, trained to 'think' like a human being, classifying and associating each defect with its possible cause, intercepting and anticipating any process drift.

GILDA-AI, the 24/7 digital assistant

SACMI's approach to the factory of the future is based on the idea that technologies should not only increase productivity, but also ensure the safety and well-being of operators. This concept is reflected in CVS machines and devices that not only detect defects with unprecedented accuracy, but also offer unparalleled virtual support through SACMI's new 24/7 digital assistant, Gilda-AI.
Gilda-AI is much more than just a chatbot: it is a 'virtual colleague' that speaks the language of the operators and provides immediate and intuitive solutions to any problem. Thanks to Gilda-AI and the CVs software suite, there is no need to consult manuals or search for complex solutions: the answer is always at your fingertips.

The range for bottlers

As part of its vision in the production of rigid packaging for the beverage industry, SACMI offers the proven CHS solution for the in-line quality control of caps. In addition, there are the new cut and tamper-evident band inspection systems integrated into the cap line in view of the changeover to the new tethered standard.
The uniqueness of the SACMI range extends to preform production, with PVS systems for both in-line and laboratory quality control (and with the first press on the market, the IPS 300 and IPS 400, to integrate this system directly into the machine as an option for process control).
For bottling lines, SACMI develops dedicated label quality control (LVS) and filled and labelled container (BVS) quality control systems, which are designed to work with advanced software packages in order to get the most out of your investment in SACMI technology.

Digital & on-site services

Intelligent on-board machine systems complement, but do not replace, what has always been the SACMI hallmark throughout the world, i.e. the ability to support the customer throughout the service life of the machine and plant with a timely after-sales, remote and on-site service.
From this point of view too, solutions such as GILDA-AI and the remote control of data, together with the possibility of sharing it in the cloud with the SACMI team, are just the beginning of a revolution in the approach to customer service, for an increasingly proactive, timely and effective service, designed to protect the customer's investment over time.
