The incorrect labelling, incorrect level or incorrect OCR could disturb the flow of the entire production line, and it could result in a potential revenue loss for the customer.
Gauging and Measurement
- A High-resolution industrial machine vision camera with integrated lights was mounted on top to inspect caps for the presence/absence of caps and also for the presence of rings in case of a ROPP type cap. This camera was also used for level inspection and also to inspect the OCR printed on the bottle.
- A second camera was used to do the label inspection for the positioning of the label and also inspected the barcode printed on the bottle surface.
- A third camera was exclusively used for examining the barcode on the crates once they were packed and were ready to be shipped.
- The cameras were enclosed within the safety enclosure to keep the position and condition of the camera intact and to provide easy maintenance.
