CIVision: Bottle inspection system

CIVision’s NB Advanced inspection system examines bottle necks using a telecentric lens, which enables the system to inspect necks accurately whatever the position of the bottle on the system’s conveyor.

The telecentric lens verifies that neck threads are completely formed, inspects the sealing surface of the neck for planarity and detects molding flash, while an overhead camera inspects for choked neck opening and for ovality of the neck opening. The system’s body inspection function checks bottle sidewalls and bottoms for flaws and imperfections. Multiple cameras and CIVCore™ proprietary software completes all inspection operations simultaneously, speeding bottles through the inspection process. The system also changes over quickly using a touchscreen to inspect new products.
