Can manufacturer installs colour inspection to maintain product consistency

Share this on social media:

Beverage can manufacturer, Can-Pack Group, has implemented a colour vision solution for inspection of can ends at its factory in Brzesko, Poland.

Colour imaging was required for adequate inspection of the product; monochrome imaging was insufficient. Can-Pack Group is using KromaKing technology from Applied Vision, a solution that integrates colour cameras, lighting arrays and sophisticated software to capture and process colour images that are inherently rich in data.

By utilising colour image processing to its fullest extent, KromaKing systems can differentiate defects and colour-obscured features in ways standard monochrome systems simply cannot.

Furthermore, digital software smart filters automatically detect and learn colours, enabling KromaKing systems to either enhance targeted defects or ignore artefacts that are not problematic. For Can-Pack and other can makers, the ability to extract higher-detail colour information when performing inspections can mean greater colour consistency from end-to-end, fewer false rejects, reduced spoilage rates, smaller hold-for-inspection (HFI) piles and larger profit margins.

In addition to colour converted end inspection, Applied Vision will integrate multiple lanes of liner inspection at the Brzesko plant – one of many Can-Pack manufacturing facilities worldwide that utilise accurate, innovative and reliable Applied Vision imaging equipment.
