Defective aluminium bottles weeded out with inspection system

Share this on social media:

Ball Corporation has installed Applied Vision inspection stations in its Golden, CO, plant to inspect its Alumi-Tek aluminium bottles. Infrequent functional defects might occur during the manufacturing process, which can be detected by Applied Vision's inspection systems.

Applied Vision systems have been used to inspect Alumi-Tek bottles in Ball's Monticello, IN, plant since 2006 when the company engineered a novel imaging concept to pinpoint defects on the bottle's particularly complex thread and curl areas.
