Cartridge Inspection: The Telesto 3.9.0


The Telesto 3.9.0 combines two previously separate measurements into one system. Both the inner diameter of the mouth and the bottom can be measured simultaneously. The Telesto is typically placed directly after the forming carousel. It is a compact system which requires only 250 mm of space on the production line and is controlled by Vimec V-centre software. Cartridges are lifted from the line using a lifting system and alligned into the inspection position without damaging the cartridge.

The inner diameters of the cartridge are captured by two dimensional area scan cameras. Each camera captures the entire inner diameter.
