Bottle Wrap Inspection

Bottle Wrap Inspection

Bottle Wrap Inspection – checking that the bottle wrapper has been positioned correctly

The Challenge:

At a rate of 100 bottles per minute, the machine vision system needed check that the  bottle wrappers were positioned correctly and that they had no significant defects in them (tears, holes or kinks).

The solution needed to cater for approximately 20 different variants of sleve design and be suitable for a food grade (wash-down) environment.

Our Solution:

A self-contained vision inspection solution to check every bottle ‘on the fly’, at a rate of up to 120 bottles per minute.  The machine vision system checked presence, position, shape and consistency of every wrapper.

The cameras are integrated to a PLC which operates a reject mechanism, thus providing containment of defective products. Images of any defects are displayed to the operator to help identify manufacturing faults.
