PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Precise shoulder view when inspecting empty cans

The further developed HEUFT canLine II with its new add-on module now achieves full coverage during the in-line inspection of beverage cans before the filling process.

Identifying deformations and defects at the flanged edge of the finish of empty cans just as reliably as soiled or dented inner walls or contamination and foreign objects on their base – the compact HEUFT canLine II carries out all this with only one intelligent top-down colour sensor camera. The new generation system can now be extended by a further detection unit in order to ensure that the empty can inspection also completely covers the hardly visible, bevelled shoulder area of the inner top sidewall just below the can opening.

The safely enclosed optical add-on module directly at the conveyor generates a total of eight high-resolution camera views each from exactly the right perspective which reproduce the sensitive area below the flanged edge of each individual can completely. Even the smallest amount of damage, residue or contamination such as material flaws, lacquer faults, residual oil or grease and marks are identified there reliably – in combination with the in-house developed HEUFT reflexx² technology of the new generation for real-time image processing. In fact even with minimum distance between the individual containers on the conveyor.

The standard top-down empty can inspection with in-house developed colour sensor camera including fully integrated image converter technology and adaptive LED lighting covers the flanged edge, the remaining inner wall areas and the base of the can – and achieves such a depth of field that neither deformations, defects and dents nor contamination and foreign objects can be overlooked: empty beverage cans which cannot be reliably sealed are identified and rejected just as reliably as faulty and contaminated ones.
