Applied Vision partners with Stolle Machinery on can inspection
Ohio-based Applied Vision Corporation and Colorado-based Stolle Machinery have entered into an exclusive arrangement to manufacture a machine vision inspection system that delivers 100 per cent surface decoration inspection for metal containers.
The new technology, expected to become available in the first quarter of 2009, will be the latest product offering in Applied Vision's KromaKing series of color vision systems. This advanced colour and pattern inspection technology will allow can manufacturers to test sample batches or re-sort 'hold for inspection' (HFI) to reduce waste. The new Applied Vision inspection system uses the same high speed container handling machine as Stolle's inside spray systems.
