*New* Introducing the Qdc Bench…
ALS Mechatronic supply a vast selection of state-of-the-art, high-speed vision inspection systems from basic ‘Vision Sensors’ to 1000 parts-per-minute measuring and inspection systems and our barcode scanners ensure correct label-to-product matching every time.
Essential applications include:
• Identification of container faults and/or contamination
• Part presence on product/manufactured goods
• Circuit board inspection
• Component quality and measurement
• Bottle cap in place
• Correct label type and in position
The ALS Mechatronic VCS10 is the ‘Rolls Royce’ of vision inspection in terms of sophistication and advanced functionality but not in terms of price! The VCS10 offers high-end, bespoke plastic container inspection at high-speed – up to 400CPM as well as optional infeed metering.
Top down neck inspection can be conducted to identify issues such as: blocked bore and ovality; the overall dimensions of the bore (at +/-0.15mm) and; for any signs of flash. 360°container body inspection can also be performed to assess: handle formation / fold / blockage, flash /slug in a handle, signs of contamination / burn holes to 0.2mm in size, streaking and; for any flash around the container body. Neck thread inspection can check thread dimension at +/-0.1mm, thread step height and of course for any flash.
Cognex are the perfect multi-purpose systems, allowing simultaneous inspections of neck ovality / finish, flash and handle fold. Cognex are available as off-the-shelf, self-customisable units but can be fitted with remote access capability so the ALS team are always on hand for any necessary support.
ALS Mechatronic’s Bar Code scanning solution can inspect every container as it comes out of the labeller / filler at speeds of up to 400 containers per minute to ensure the correct label is on the container. Add in a colour cap sensor and the container cap can also be checked against the label and/or the selected container type; rejecting those that do not match the chosen correlations.
*New* Introducing the Qdc Bench™
The Qdc Bench enables container producers and their customers to proactively fault find and reduce waste, thereby ensuring complete quality control and a great reputation for high quality product.
The Qdc Bench uses state of the art technology including high grade optics and high resolution industrial cameras to capture and record bore and thread dimensions, these are essential periodic checks required during container production and filling process to ensure faults are quickly identified and that quality is assured.
Error is inevitable when you rely on the human eye for measurement.
The Qdc Bench replaces manual processes i.e. operators using a vernier and manually recording results on paper, which potentially introduces translation errors, data loss or results not being stored for future reference. With a lack of traceability, root cause identification becomes problematic, multiple people across multiple shifts may be conducting random quality checks with no standardised method of measurement.
Features and Benefits of the Qdc Bench:
• Material colour can range from clear to opaque and any container size
• Materials can be plastic, glass, or metal
• Measurements include Inner and Outer Bore, Thread, Neck, Neck Step, Bottle Height
• Autonomous and streamlined training and measuring techniques reducing operator error
• Audit trail of all user interaction, designed to strengthen Quality Management System
• Database logging of results for traceability back to machine, date and time
• Measurement accuracy down 0.015 mm
• Industrial grade vision and automation hardware
• Automated self-training for new product setup
• ISO9001:2015 Compliancy
Options include :
• Weight checker
• Colour Inspection
• Databasing of all image data
