System checks integrity of cans inline

InterVision Global has released the inline CanCheck inspection system for checking the integrity of food canning lines during manufacture.

Comprising nine systems, which can be used individually for specific tasks, or combined to create a comprehensive machine vision inspection system, CanCheck addresses quality issues relating to cans, labels, codes, foreign objects and much more.

Bright stock cans entering a line are first checked to ensure they are within specification and are not distorted or damaged using InterVision’s inline non-contact CanDamage inspection system.

The FODcheck system is then used to inspect the inside of cans just prior to them entering the filling station.

Filled but unlabelled cans are then marked with a product code and date-time stamped for traceability. The CanCode system then ensures that only the correct cans enter the labelling system.

The LabelSure module then reads the ‘artwork’ number within the labeller, checking and verifying that each label is correct for the batch being made.

Following pasteurisation and cooling, the CanSeal system uses a combination of laser and machine vision to ensure that each can is checked and defective cans are identified and rejected.

At the heart of InterVision’s CanCheck System is myGuardian, an operator interface that provides visibility on all the running subsystems. It also allows troubleshooting and diagnostics to be carried out.
