EyeVision for the Beverage Industry

Inspection of empties

The EyeVision software automates the return of empties and ...

 

 

… recognizes and sorts according to bottle type

… identifies damaged and non-brand bottles

… recognizes bottels according their characteristics such as:

    bottle height, diameter, color or label

… detects OCR/ OCV as e.g. the imprinted number on the bottle's nest

Cap Inspection

The cap inspection with EyeVision allows a high-precision measurement of an askew bottle cap. But EyeVision can do more than that. Starting with the presence check of the bottle cap and the inspection of the lock ring up to the inspection of the cap height, EyeVision masters every bottle cap. And this at speed of 30 bottles per second.

Fill Level Inspection

 The EyeVision Software also proves of value in the bottling plant. For example to check if the fill level is matched by every bottle, an image of the bottle neck is captured and the fill level measured. Also before the bottling the bottle neck is checked for cracks or if its splintered.

Label Inspection

 Also the label inspection is a piece of cake for the EyeVision software, even if the labels vary not only in content type and packaging, but also in language, origin and size. The inspection is carried out in free run on the conveyor band, on any kind of bottle, totally impartial to the type and position of the label.

- Control during the free run on the conveyor band no matter the position of the bottle on the band

- Control of wrap-around labels

Bottles in 3D

It is also possible to control various 3D sensors with the EyeVision software and can therefore also check the bottle cases with a 3D-system. Therefore it is possible to e.g. detect if the cases are accordingly filled with bottles. With top view it is not only possible to check if the cases are completely filled but additionally also if there are some other disturbances.
