Proteus – Dimensional inspection of cartridges
The Vimec Proteus inspection system is designed for dimensional inspection of borosilicate glass cartridges before oven.
Way of working
The cartridges are presented to the camera using a Rotowheel. The Rotowheel takes the cartridges out of the conveyor and positions the cartridges accurately. A rotation wheel rotates the cartridges quickly to have a view from all sides. After inspection is performed, the Rotowheel places the cartridges back on to the conveyor
During the rotation of the cartridge, several cameras are used, each of them with a specific field of view. After the inspection is completed, the results of the inspection are processed in the V-Center system control.
Together with data of optional other inspection systems, a trigger a signal to the reject unit is generated if the cartridge is not accepted with reference to the limits set.
