Applied Vision has released the DecoMaster colour blanket monitoring system. The system inspects 100 per cent of the blanket surface to provide proactive quality control and minimise decoration spoilage. Exposing problems at the source significantly impacts the number of costly and time-consuming hold-for-inspection (HFI) errors.
DecoMaster is the latest addition to the company's KromaKing colour inspection tools for can makers. Built with a sturdy, robust optical imaging head and completely sealed housing to withstand harsh decorator environments, DecoMaster detects colour shifts, cut blankets, ink blobs and smears, loss of colour, excessive colour and the absence of a date code at speeds up to 3,000 parts per minute. Flawed cans are immediately rejected from the line.
