The HotGlue Inspector checks, if the adhesive points between cardboard surfaces of boxes are present and hot enough to glue the cardboard box together. With up to 60 boxes per second (which amounts to 3600 boxes per minute). Available camera resolutions are 291 x 120 and 640 x 480 Pixel.
The system is based on the EyeVision software and is easily adapted to your applications. The hardware includes the EmSys computing unit and a thermal imaging camera of the supported makers such as e.g. Optris, Flir, etc.
Inspects adhesive joints for temperature
If a glue is missing at an adhesive joint or if the temperature of the glue is not hot enough, then this is detected automatically. Then the error can be matched to the respective glueing device and can be immediately repaired. The carton can also be rejected completely in case all the adhesive joints are missing or the temperature is too low.
