The Pilot Profiler® in-the-blowmolder material distribution measurement system offers real-time measurement feedback for PET containers, at the point of production, on every container produced.

It is compatible with all major brands of rotary blowmolders.

The Pilot Profiler system features a compact non-contact measurement unit that is positioned within the blowmolder to measure bottles as they exit the mold. This system can be fitted with up to 32 sensors to produce a comprehensive thickness profile over the entire sidewall of a container.
