Vial Inspection

Vial Inspection system is a product for any manufacturing unit which produces glass vials. It is a scalable system implementation for multiple lines based manufacturing units. It provides low cost inspection solution for a variety of vials. The system uses a backlight and CCD cameras with optical zooming for imaging. The entire set of image processing algorithms were developed in-house catering to the special needs of glass vials. The system calculates following parameters for each vial inspected

  • Body Diameter
  • Total Height
  • Height from base to shoulder
  • Lip Height
  • Neck Height
  • Internal Diameter of mouth
  • Outer Diameter of mouth
  • Outer Diameter of thread (for Screw Vials)
  • Thread Pitch (for Screw Vials)
  • Cosmetic defects (Chips etc.)
  • Foreign bodies inside the vial

Salient Features :

  • Specially designed lighting arrangement for effective image acquisition
  • Highly efficient, fast and robust at speeds in excess of 3600 vials per hour
  • Easy to use Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Generates reports in universal file formatM
  • The system inspects vials of different colors.
    • Transparent
    • Amber
    • Semi Amber
  • Designed to handle a wide range of vial sizes with minimal change parts
  • Simultaneous inspection for several criteria: particulate matter, glassware defects
  • PLC operator control
