MGS Machine Corp.: Carton inspection module
MGS Machine Corporation’s Carton Inspection Module, which may be installed downstream from most cartoning machines, delivers three main functions independent of the cartoner.
It inspects for open flaps on cartons, prints lot and date codes onto cartons, and provides visual verification of the printing. The module is self-contained, with printer and vision systems fully integrated. Compatible with all types and brands of printers--ink jet or laser--as well as with all vision systems. The control system is discrete and validatable for use in pharmaceutical applications. Module features a positive vacuum belt conveyor that provides a platform for non-contact printers. The base machine includes a high-powered air jet reject device, independent lockable reject bin, and HMI touch screen. Optional features include carton gapping rollers, segregated reject bins, and a pneumatic cylinder reject device.
