The rubber seal inspection in the swing stopper closing machines is optionally available for all new machine generations with a curved machine table. We also try to retrofit this technology in older machines.
Functional descriptionThe swing-top bottles are aligned like with in closing machines, the closure is lifted from the bottle neck and the seal is turned downwards. Then the underside of the stopper head and the rubber seal are checked and analyzed. The swing top control is an optical evaluation of swing top closures of commercially available swing top bottles in order to determine their quality and sort them out via a bottle ejection system. The system consists of a lighting unit, an image recording unit and the central unit with control screen. The system is prepared for integration into the existing AMS system and is supplied complete with lighting and brackets. All system parts built into the machine correspond to protection class IP67.
Camera for rubber seal inspection:The first camera is mounted after the hygienic tunnel underneath the carousel to inspect the swing stoppers on the bottom side (rubber seal). The following criteria can be controlled: - Damage to the nipple - Damage to the rubber seal - Condition of the seal (Discolouration, soiling, mold)
