In the interest of consumer health and safety, the food and beverage industry relies on 100% defect and contamination free bottles, jars and cans in automated filling lines.
At production rates in excess of 70,000 containers per hour, a human operator could not fulfill this task. JAI high speed cameras are the perfect eyes for such an automated inspection system.
In the beverage industry, JAI cameras are applied in a range of applications looking for imperfections throughout the entire bottling production process.The most popular applications includes inspection for defective bottles to be rejected before entering the production line, sorting of bottles/crates in correct sizes and variants, hygiene inspection, fill level inspection, label inspection and control of bottle cap placement onto a product after the filling stage.
In the food industry JAI cameras are used for sorting fruit and vegetables in correct grading, quality and portions on conveyer belts. Inspection for foreign objects is also among the most popular applications. JAI’s 3 CCD line scan cameras are ideal for sorting nuts, coffee beans and rice tumbling in free air past the camera until they reach the reject nozzles.
