CHS

Quality control machine for plastic screw caps

Suitable for in-line use on injection moulding machines, assemblers or any other process machine, the CHS machine, in its different versions, allows precise inspection of plastic caps and their components. Configurable with up to 7 cameras and with speeds up to 270,000 caps per hour, it can inspect all functional and visible parts of the cap, perform indicative measurement of diameters and heights, inspect the decoration and the side wall, including the breakage of the tamper-evident band. It is also able to read the number of cavities moulded inside the cap to make statistics of defects by number of cavities or discard all caps whose number is included in a list.

CHS101

Inline inspection of plastic caps

CHS101 has been designed to be paired to a production machine such as SFM or PMV, with the aim to control the public side of plastic caps. By means of 5 cameras and advanced inspection tools, it reliably controls the external bottom (with or without decoration) and the external sidewall of plastic caps.

CVS102

Quality Control Vision System for plastic screw caps

CVS102 includes a wide range of vision systems configurable with up to 7 cameras and suitable for the inside, outside (with and without decoration) and side wall inspection of plastic screw caps, at a speed of up to 360,000 caps per hour. Available both integrated in SACMI machines and on customer’s existing lines, suitable to inspect plastic caps produced both with compression and injection technology.

SPARK TESTER

Inspection system for checking micro-holes or micro-cracks at the injection point

The Spark Tester system allows the identification of micro-holes and micro-cracks by applying a high voltage and low current potential at the bottom end sides of plastic caps.

CVS154

Inspection of plastic caps after folding/slitting

CVS154 has been designed to control the caps after the operation of folding and slitting and it is fully integrated with SACMI SCM/SFM machines. It can be configured with 2 or 6 cameras to control the interior or interior and the external sidewall.

CVS360 3D

360° Control of Plastic Caps

CVS360-3D is an innovative hardware/software module developed by SACMI R&D. Thanks to four cameras placed around the object and sophisticated 3D software algorithms, CVS360-3D is capable to develop a 3D object in a 2D image making a compensation of any deformation that may stem from perspective, spatial position and lens deformation, thus reproducing always a perfect unroll of the profile.

PFMC

Checking and inspecting the tamper-evident band

The PFMC (Pull Force Machine CVS-CUT) performs destructive checks on the cap tamper-evident band.
The pull test measures:
• breaking force of the bridges;
• breaking force of the lugs keeping the cap tethered to the bottle neck.

The machine records the measured values and provides a range of statistics. It can work as either a stand-alone unit or on a production line.
The optional CVS-CUT vision system inspects the tamper-evident band before the destructive test. It features a high-resolution line scan camera ensuring a resolution below 0.01 mm.

CVS153

Inspection of the gasket

CVS153 has been designed to control the seal moulded by the PMV machine, using specific lighting and software recipies for different product (pull ring, MASC, ROPP, plastic caps). Thanks to an additional optional camera, it can also control the decoration.

CVS152

Inspection of single serve capsules after moulding

One to three cameras to detect and eject visible defects in the capsules immediately after the moulding. Moreover, other cameras are applied for a total process control of the CCMM.

Inspection of crown caps

Vision systems and inspection machines for crown caps

Integrated into SACMI lining machines or as stand-alone modules, vision systems for crown cap inspection offer the highest performance in terms of defect identification and quality assurance. For off-line inspection needs, the CAT300 allows analysing crown caps at speeds of up to 180,000 caps per hour.

THE VISION SYSTEMS THAT GUARANTEE 100% YOUR PRODUCTION LINE

CROWN CAPS

CVS PTC

Vision System for decoration alignment

The CVS PTC vision system is integrated into the new PTC600 cap press and has been designed to ensure a perfect centering of the decoration in each crown cap. CVS PTC measures the relative distance between the lithography and the edge on 2 positions on the sheet and communicates it to the control logic, which, by activating a motorised positioning system, corrects the position of the sheet to guarantee the perfect centring of the cap.

CVS151

VISION SYSTEM FOR QUALITY CONTROL OF CROWN CAPS

Fully integrated into PMC lining machines, CVS151 controls the quality of the gasket produced by the machine. By means of an additional camera, it can also control the quality of the artwork.Read more

Inspection machine for crown caps

CAT300

Inspection machine for crown caps

CAT 300 is able to inspect both the product and public sides of crown caps, with speeds up to 3,000 caps/minute. Complete with orienter, the CAT 300 can be easily installed both stand-alone or in-line.

CVS CCD

Vision System for embossing phase alignment

The CVS CCD is installed on the CCD 300 machine and guides its motion system so that the decoration on the cap and the embossing are perfectly aligned. The CVS CCD identifies the lithography of each cap and calculates its rotation angle with respect to a preset reference. The data is then communicated to the automation system of the machine, which then rotates the brushless motor that equips each single cavity, so that the embossing perfectly matches the decoration.

Inspection of aluminium caps

Vision systems and inspection machines for aluminium caps

Integrated into SACMI lining machines or as stand-alone modules, vision systems for aluminium cap inspection offer the highest performance in terms of defect identification and quality assurance. 
CHS module that applies 7 high-resolution cameras, it is possible to inspect the inside, outside and side wall of the caps with the utmost precision; in this way, manufacturers can guarantee the highest quality to their end customers
