Applied Vision has launched a technology for its Genius inspection system that minimises reflection on the lower sidewall of three-piece cans with easy open or converted ends. This technology solves a problem that made inspecting the lower sidewall of these types of containers virtually impossible.

When inspecting three-piece cans with easy open or converted ends, features like rivets and scoring reflect back onto the lower sidewall of the container. These reflections obscure the image captured by the inspection system, making it virtually impossible to detect defects like scratches, coating voids, dents, foreign contaminants and oven dust.

Applied Vision's solution uses advanced lighting and optics to minimise the reflection on the sidewall. Specially-engineered software then filters out the remaining reflections, making critical defects visible to the system.
