Sports Drink Cap Check

The Challenge:

The machine vision system needs to check that all of the sports bottle caps have been assembled correctly, at a rate of 100 bottles per minute. Defects can include misformed, misaligned or missing caps, and kinks. The solution also needs to cater for multiple variants and needs to be able to suitable for a food grade (wash-down) environment.

Our Solution:

Sports Drink Cap Check

A turnkey, IP65 machine vision solution was installed to check every bottle ‘on the fly’, at a rates of up to 120 bottles per minute. The vision system checked for cap presence, position, and shape. The system was also integrated to a PLC which operates a reject mechanism, thus providing containment of defective products. Images of any defects are stored on a server with a date and time stamp, they are also displayed to the operator to help identify manufacturing faults.
