Visual Inspection System
Standard configuration:

  • Foreign contaminants inspection: 4 cameras;
  • Heavy particles detection: 1 camera;
  • Cosmetic defects detection: 1 camera – alu-cap and
    flip-off, 1 camera – container body (cracks, scratches,
    black spots; ampoule ring color, OPC, black spots);
  • Ampoule Tip inspection: 1 camera.

Key Points
Innovative recipe management: easy and quick setting of the visual inspection parameters;
Maximum flexibility in setup and configuration of illumination systems: bottom light, back light and polarized light can be used individually and / or combined;
Digital megapixel cameras via Gigabit Ethernet / USB3 standard.


automated visual inspection

C3 equipment is designed for the 100% fully automated visual inspection of glass and plastic containers ranging in diameter between 8 mm and 78 mm at a maximum production speed of 200 unit per minute.

C3 equipment is made up of visual inspection systems belonging to three categories:

  1. Foreign contaminants inspection: the container to be inspected is spun before reaching the unit;
  2. Cosmetic, cap, tip, fill level inspection: the container to be inspected is spun when passing through the unit;
  3. Other inspection units: optional or custom controls.

Multiple infeed and outfeed configurations are available according specific containers and user requirements:

  • Manual loading and unloading: Tray in / Tray out + rotary turntables as an option;
  • Inline connection: Conveyor in / Conveyor out.Four (4) separate exits dedicated to conforming and defective containers.
  • Glass and Plastic Vials
  • Glass ampoules
  • Glass cartridges
  • Liquid: water based, oil based, suspensions
  • Freeze-dried
  • Foreign matters as particles (reflecting / non reflecting) and fibers
  • Heavy particles
  • Cosmetic defects and Fill level
    • Ampoule: tip shape and height, ring and OPC absence
    • Vial: alucap and flip off defects
    • Cartridge: Plunger position and insertion, product or foreign particles between ribs, number of ribs
