Packaging Inspector

Automatic inspection of packaging on a conveyor belt

The IVISYS Packaging Inspector quickly finds the products that do not comply with the specification, saving cost further down the production line, in transit or at the customer. The system effectively inspects, records and sorts 100% of the production.
Our high-resolution camera picks out every detail for analysis to determine if these should continue further down the production line.

Why Automatic Inspection

– Saves more than 90% of the cost related to inspected defects
– Built to handle variable product series easily
– Collects valuable inspection data

Case Story

This inspection is indifferent to the type of closure used, weather it is pump, mist or regular closure. Furthermore, the dimensional variations in plastic bottles and closures are resolved with a very simple adjustment.

The system can be adapted to any type of product for inspection of almost any kind of feature. As long as the feature is visible to the camera it can be analyzed. Features like shape, position, orientation, content or text/barcodes are all typical jobs. The features need to be visible and distinguishable from the background, why the optimal light is just as essential.

How it works

Our high-resolution cameras with designed light captures the product and its features in clear view. Then the system checks if the feature inspected is within the desired specification. This analysis takes place in just a fraction of a second.

What and how we analyze is stored in the system and available at an instant when needed. This is an advantage when more than just one product needs to be inspected. Even the camera position used with our optional camera galley, is stored to be easily restored.

The system can be adapted to other types of packaging and other types of features to look for, as long as the feature is visible to the mounted camera. The shape, position, orientation, content,count,even  surface flaw or text/barcodes are details that can be inspected.

Options

Additional cameras can be used to inspect more areas/different angles of the product.
For optimal inspection, the camera should be aligned with the product feature. With the optional camera galley, we can position the camera automatically according to the physical size of the product.

An optional pneumatic or electric actuator removes the defect products from the conveyor.
If the system is to control more than just an alarm, we offer as an option the ability to control additional external electrical functions.

The result of the inspections is stored and can be retrieved as a report. If the standard reporting is insufficient, we can tailor the report to the customer’s specific needs.

Why should you automate your quality control?

Manual inspection reduces the number of failed products typically by a factor of 3-6, and normal practice is to rotate the staff at regular intervals to keep their senses sharp.

Automatic inspection, on the other hand is a tireless, objective, consistent and the fastest method to achieve instantly better results. Not only are the cost related to waste, rework and customer complains reduced drastically, but you even have the data to prove it.
