FILTEC would like to thank everyone that came out to Drinktec held in Munich, Germany, September 12-16, 2022. Drinktec is the world’s leading trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industries and is where global industry experts and decision-makers meet to discover the newest innovations and state-of-the-art technologies for their businesses. With over 1,000 exhibitors from 55 countries and nearly 50,000 visitors from 169 countries at this year’s event, the industry’s most anticipated show proved that the need for innovative inspection solutions never goes away.
FILTEC presented the latest breakthrough in Empty Bottle Inspection, Omnivision 4 with Intellect, at Drinktec 2022. This innovative solution gives manufacturers the ability to assure product quality and production line analytics by inspecting glass and refillable PET bottles for damages, defects, and contaminants.

Dave Coleman, Global Product Manager at FILTEC, sums up the impressive impact the OV4 made with Drinktec 2022 attendees:
“With the new advantages both mechanically, like faster changeover, higher image resolution/bit depth, no back pressure needed for OSW, and overall more product flexibility - combined with the Intellect platform - many attendees were excited to see the OV4 and feel it will be a good fit for them moving forward in their EBI requirements.”
The FILTEC team also had wonderful conversations with Drinktec attendees about their overall need for automation and precision on their line and how FILTEC solutions can support this.
"Drinktec 2022 was a fantastic show for Filtec. Customers were very excited to learn about inspection capabilities such as remote vision inspection, case inspection, and thermal glue inspection.
