Omnivision inspection from Lenox.
The high speed Omnivision II All Surface Empty Bottle Inspector features a revolutionary multimedia processing system utilising CCD cameras with automatically adjustable zoom lens and light level controls for optimum detection capabilities. As well as a 360[degrees] inner sidewall and outer sidewall bottle inspection including the base, finish and thread, the system also detects colour faults and IR and RF residual liquid. Reject verification with PLC feedback to the operator ensures optimum quality monitoring.
Running at up to 81,000bph on 110mm maximum diameter bottles, the OV-II has a unique single vacuum starwheel handling system, allowing it to be operated in short coupled backed-up production lines. Its modular configuration and small footprint means that the system can be easily integrated into existing lines where linear belt-type machines are unable to operate, and optional features can easily be added at a later date. Bottle changeover times of less than five minutes and easy set-up and operation reduce line downtime and lead to improved productivity.
The large 430mm LCD colour monitor and touch pad mounted on a swing arm control console allows for 360[degrees] viewing and operation. Advanced software features include remote access with password protection and the logging of user changes, permitting lull system traceability.
