Other inspection solutions from FILTEC that will be demonstrated at Drinktec Hall B5 Stand 314 include:
VISION PRESSURE: 3D Scanning Module Inspects Pressure and Vacuum
Filtec’s Vision Pressure solution (Auratec) is an intelligent and reliable system that provides true and consistent pressure, vacuum, and leak detection with three-dimensional views of the container. This prevents false rejects due to alignment. Self-correcting algorithms maintain accurate inspection despite variances. Multiple adaptive algorithms evaluate 3D image data in real time at speeds in excess of 1,200 CPM.
VISION EMPTY CAN INSPECTION: Highly Configurable Vision Machine Detects Flaws in Empty Cans
FILTEC provides an unmatched ability to detect defects in the flange, inner sidewalls, and base of empty cans. This solution reduces downtime and increases production line efficiency by reducing jams at the filler and seamer. The system has a compact machine footprint that is easy to install and will easily integrate into existing production lines.
FILTEC REMOTE VISION INSPECTION: Compact and Flexible Vision Inspection Solution
Filtec’s Remote Vision Inspection solutions (RVI) can solve many of your inspection needs in a compact and economical package . RVI integrates with the Intellect Inspection platform to create powerful Quality Assurance inspection solutions for most food, beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, or personal care product lines. RVI solutions support a broad range of quality inspection applications, including date code presence, bottle closure, simple label Inspection, fill level inspection, and many more.
ADDITIONAL FILTEC VISION SOLUTIONS
FILTEC offers best-in-class machine vision capabilities for inspection of bottles and cans on high-speed lines. These solutions not only detect low fill, high fill, and all typical cap defects, but also informs the operator about the cause of the problem by giving them detailed statistics about the performance of the filler valves and capper heads. A sampling feature for quality control is also included. The Ethernet Interface permits the connection via OMAC/Weihenstephan protocol to a SCADA Server. These Vision solutions are highly integrated and include the ability to inspect for labels, barcodes/date codes, branding, and more.
