To measure the fill level for any underfilling and overfilling and to inspect the cap of bottles using the optical method. State-of-the-art camera and lighting technology that uses multi-optical axes (offset by 90°/ 270° coverage) and variable lighting. Up to seven images per bottle can be created and evaluated according to many different criteria by the image processing system Miho VIDIOS®. The point of installation is normally at the outfeed of the filler.
Fill level inspection: inspects the fill level for any underfilling and overfilling in transparent, cloudy/non-transparent and foaming liquids, provided that the fill level is not obscured by a label. Lighting through the reflected and/or transmitted light method.
Cap: inspection of the cap for exact fit (slanted position/ depth screwed on) and bullnoses. Inspection for damage to the safety ring in metal and plastic screw caps.
Wrap-around label: checks for the presence and the position of a wrap-around label for PET bottles
Expiry date (on the side): checks for the presence of an expiry date on the side of the cap . Here, the expiry date must be on the side facing the camera
Detection of nitrogen fog directly after filler and capper
A series fault detection is implemented.
Not suitable for opaque containers and for bottles with lables in the fill level area.
