The OptiCheck™ inspection system addresses quality-related issues common to plastic bottle production with a cost effective, yet extremely reliable approach. It’s expandable, modular approach offers producers flexibility to address specific quality needs with modules for high-accuracy on-line finish gauging, seal surface, sidewall and base defect management as well as label inspection. Designed for use in tabletop conveyor applications, the OptiCheck™ system sports a small footprint that is well suited for bottle production operations that have limited floor space. OptiCheck™ inspection modules incorporate the latest vision and inspection technology, including high-resolution cameras and variable multi-spectrum LED illumination for maximum flexibility and reliable operation. The OptiCheck™ system also offers a number of tools to assist operators with setup and managing their processes. A high-resolution, touch screen user interface is the center for system operation and provides a host of information for the operator including data for monitoring line status and assessing production trends, detailed defect and reject information and production-run summaries data, with live and historical images. The OptiCheck™ system’s versatile, easy to operate and expandable approach is compatible with frequent product change-overs, color changes and limited line space. Unlike many of the vision products on the market today, the OptiCheck™ system is designed expressly for the unique measurement and inspection capabilities required for bottles and similar containers.
