At CapTech Automation, innovative solutions are and always have been our core offering. All of our equipment is designed for efficiency and effectiveness, providing customers with a way to enhance their production operations by increasing throughput and decreasing costs.
With industry knowledge of experts from Big Sky Engineering, we design, develop, and deliver a variety of automation and closure assembly solutions. One of our most popular products is our vision inspection systems, which allow our customers to target and identify any part or process defect or concern before it becomes a major issue.
An Overview of Vision Inspection Systems
Vision inspection systems—sometimes called machine vision systems—enable industry professionals to visually detect and identify defects during manufacturing operations. They employ the use of a camera or multiple cameras as well as video and lighting components to facilitate the measurement of parts, validation of necessary components, and verification of workpiece positioning. More advanced systems may include the intelligence components required to make in-process decisions that improve operations.
At CapTech Automation, our vision inspection systems are used to validate different properties of liner discs in lined caps and, for some instances, aspects of the molded closure. Some of the common attributes inspected include liner-disc presence, mooned liner disc, off-center liner disc, and tape splices. The systems accommodate the inspection of ABS, polyethylene, polypropylene, and many other specialized materials.
Some of the standard features of our vision inspection systems include:
- A camera to detect and identify defects
- A conveyor to pass a single line of caps underneath the camera
- A vacuum belt to prevent slipping during the process (inclusion depends on the processing rate and cap size)
- Integrated backlighting to enhance defect detection
- Air jet ejectors to remove defective items from the line without slowing down production
Benefits of Vision Inspection Systems
By investing in a vision inspection system, industry professionals can significantly increase part and process quality in their facilities. In addition to reducing the number of defective products that go out to customers, the systems allow for faster production—and therefore higher production yields, lower production costs, and shorter lead times—as they minimize the need for manual inspection.
