KromaKing DecoScan outside-can inspection system

Share this on social media:

Applied Vision has released its fully automated KromaKing DecoScan outside-can inspection system. It enables canmakers to convert manual operator colour decoration inspection stations to automated centres of greater productivity and profitability.

The KromaKing DecoScan system inspects the entire label decoration of two-piece beverage cans (8 to 24oz). Typically installed after the deco oven, it replaces manual operator inspection stations and is capable of inspecting ten cans per minute for colour shifts, ink smears, mis-registration, missing text, and spatial and pattern defects. With DecoScan automated sampling, canmakers can avoid costly continued misprints while ensuring good cans are not wasted.

DecoScan is a standalone solution complete with all required components to receive the can offline, inspect it in a sealed optical environment and return it back into production if it passes a thorough quality assessment. An LCD touch screen interface allows users to define multiple regions of interest on the label for inspection; then, highly accurate, high-quality colour measurements are provided in Delta E, Delta RGB and Delta CMY with value reporting in Lab, RGB, XYZ, CMY, HSI, LCh and Density.
