Beverage & Bottled Water

Beverage-production environments are typically very high speed, around the clock, and subject to regular wash downs. Bottling plants have wet or humid environments, hence primary-product substrates are often wet and non-porous. 

Product quality is extremely important and the cost of any rework is high. iQVision can provide a tailored solution for your beverage business’s needs, verifying many features on-line, with: 

Vision systems 

To check:

  • bottle rim and body integrity
  • fill level
  • cap type and fit
  • label ID and placement

Metal detection 

To check bottles are free from ferrous metals and non-ferrous materials including glass, stones and other contaminants.

X-ray inspection

To check bottles are free from tiny contaminants. X-ray inspection systems can check a wide range of materials, including large packaged products, cases, cans and bottles. 

 

iQVision can tailor a solution to eject bottles containing impurities from your production lines.  

Applications

checkWeigh
Checkweigher
iQVision’s cost-effective checkweighers suits your food or non-food application, ensuring every product leaving your factory is within weight specifications, protecting your brand and profits. Check from 10g-15kg. Designed for hygienic, wet areas.
metalDetection
Metal Detection Systems
iQVision’s cost-effective, advanced metal detection technology suits your food or non-food application, ensuring every product leaving your factory is free from metal contaminants, protecting your brand, machinery and bottom line.
Cross Reference
Matching or cross referencing several elements of packaging can be very beneficial for quality inspection using vision technology like matching caps to labels or bar codes on back label to design elements on the front label.
Pick and Place
Vision systems facilitate robotic pick & place processes, quickly and accurately detecting the position and orientation of parts - for identification, sorting and packing operations.
Line Monitoring
Simple to install, high speed cameras can allow diagnosis of a diverse range of manufacturing process issues.
Item Count
Smart cameras can reliably count bottles and other containers within cartons.
Empty Container Inspection
Vision solutions can inspect empty bottles, cans, tubes, boxes, tubs and other rigid containers to ensure they meet the dimensional and cosmetic requirements customers and regulators demand.
Packaging Quality Assurance
Vision solutions inspect products and other packages to verify that the packaging process was completed to the exacting standards and specifications set by the manufacturer.
Closure and Seal Validation
Vision solutions for closures and seals ensure the integrity of a closure placed on a bottle, tub or pack.
Label Inspection and Validation
Vision Solutions for label inspection can be set up to ensure perfect product presentation and confirm label ID every time.
Code Validation
A vision solution for code inspection is a complete in-line solution that verifies code presence, position and formation, and, where necessary, enables full code reading and matching.
