Seam Detection

Seam detection is a vital aspect of ensuring that, particularly canned products, are accurately sealed maximising freshness, and quality of the product.  E2M have created outstanding technology which is able to monitor and detect weather the containers are correctly sealed.  If there is a fault with the product, the technology will quickly flag this up to reduce the effects of the fault on production.  One of the pieces of machinery which E2M have created with this technology is the Visio Can-End inspection system.

Visio Can-End Inspection System

This particular inspection system is able to work with any type of double-seam can including Dingley, Club, Oval, and Hansa.  The system can be installed over existing conveyors which is ideal as it will minimise disruption to the line, as well as taking up minimal floor space, reducing overhead costs.  The system is able to inspect the products, without physically handling them, which reduces the potential for fragile products to be damaged. The inspection system works through geometrical analysis below the outside of the seam and then using pneumatic rejection of defective units.  The inspection can be carried out on irregularities with double seams and those irregularities which could be potentially a danger to the can.
