Metal Can Mouth Inspection
|Application:||Metal can mouth inspection|
With the use of Cognex industrial vision cameras, we are in a position to perform a check for incorrect turning / closing of the base or lid of a can.
The fault can be identified by using the special luminaire that highlights the problem. Place 3-4 cameras of the In-Sight 2000 range around the box to cover the entire perimeter. The number of cameras depends on the size of the problem and the perimeter of the container. With Cognex's mechanical vision tools, it is possible to carry out accurate, fast and easy checks. In error detection the defective product will be discarded by the piston line. A second photocell confirms the rejection. If the rejection fails (eg low air pressure), the line stops and an alarm is triggered.
The operator using the Cognex VisionView panel will be able to set parameters, watch live results by viewing photos from the cameras (Film Strip), and view control statistics.
Below we see the photo of a pass inspection result ...
... and three failing results.
We handle the error in any way whatsoever the customer wishes. Either by automatic discharging from the line, by an audible / bright alarm or by stopping the engine.
