The FILTEC Vision Empty Can Inspection Solution is an automated machine vision system for canning lines. The solution incorporates comprehensive, robust empty can inspection (ECI) algorithms. These detect defects and contaminants in empty cans to ensure that only flawless cans reach the filler and seamer, eliminating excessive downstream waste.
The system’s reliable high-resolution industrial cameras, long-life LED strobes, and unique image inspection algorithms perform pinpoint can inspection for lines operating up to 2,400 cans per minute (CPM).
Before aluminum cans reach the filler, they can easily suffer damages to:
The solution’s proprietary ECI software algorithms detect:
Grooves, wrinkles and coating
Visible cracks and holes
Oil, grease and stains
Bent, damaged or cracked
Short or missing flange
