Rhea – Cosmetic and dimensional inspection of vials
The Vimec Rhea inspection system is designed for cosmetic and dimensional inspection of borosilicate glass vials.
Way of working
The vials are presented to the cameras using a Rotowheel. The Rotowheel takes the vials out of the conveyor and positions the vials accurately. A rotation
wheel rotates the vials quickly to have a view from all sides. After inspection is performed, the rotowheel places the vials back on to the conveyor.
During the rotation of the vial, 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 other optional inspection systems, a trigger signal to the reject unit is generated if the vial is not accepted with reference to the limits set.
