Silgan Holdings (Stamford, CT, US), a manufacturer of rigid packaging for consumer goods products, has installed a Genius machine vision system from Applied Vision at its Rochelle, IL, US plant. The Genius systems utilise a total of 35 cameras and will replace existing inspection systems.
With 82 operating facilities worldwide, Silgan is a leader in the food end production industry, and is continually improving the quality of its products. Applied Vision's Genius system automatically identifies packaging defects and rejects them from the production line. The system's integrated alarm functions allow operators to identify and correct manufacturing issues quickly to minimise overall spoilage.
‘This installation is just the latest of many successful changes implemented by Silgan throughout our operations. After thorough evaluation Applied Vision was selected as the supplier of vision inspection for improved quality,’ said Aric Arneson, plant superintendent at Silgan.
