New England Machinery: Line inspection rejection system
NEM introduces an online inspection rejection system (NELIR) developed in answer to an industry need for production lines to automatically identify and eliminate containers that can cause jams or problems.
The NELIR can detect down bottles, upside down bottles, or misaligned bottles. Upon detection, the errant bottles are rejected using an air blower, diverter arm, or pusher cylinder to a table, collection bin, or transferred to an existing system.
The modular self-contained unit can be easily mounted to a conveyor or with an optional free-standing frame, slide up to an existing conveyor. Depending on the inspection requirements, the NELIR can use photo eyes, proximity switches, limit switches or vision system. This model can keep up with the speed of the production line and is adjustable for different line speeds up to 450 cpm depending on container size and the inspection requirements.
The benefit of the NELIR is the flexibility it provides to be able to immediately mount it anywhere on the line where potential problems can occur and/or move it accordingly.
