Innovative, flexibly deployable container
alignment for perfect equipment

Container alignment

Camera-based bottle alignment before labelling
In addition to standard equipment, individual design bottles with special label equipment aligned precisely to the cap or other marks are becoming the norm. Whether swing-top, relief alignment marks on the base of the bottle or glass seam – our  ROTA container alignment unit with state-of-the-art camera and LED lighting technology and servo-controlled turntables guarantees perfect container positioning before labelling.

Usage
The KS container alignment station is specially designed for the labelling requirements of swing-top bottles and containers that have to be aligned in accordance with special criteria such as base and side cams, glass seam, relief and other alignment marks. The detection takes place via state-of-the-art camera and LED lighting technology. Visualisation connection to the control unit with traceability function. The container positioning takes place via servo-controlled container turntables.

Advantages:

  • Individual positioning in the labelling machine adapted to the container passage
  • State-of-the-art CCD cameras and long-life, high-performance LED lighting systems and sensors
  • Detection of all usual alignment marks
  • Exact container positioning via servo-controlled container turntables for label positioning
  • Unlimited type selection
  • Integration into the machine control system with vision and traceability function

Control integration including vision and traceability
We, of course, ensure a link-up of all the machines and control systems including the faulty bottle ejecting stations. Operating is undertaken in the integrated machine control system or by means of a touch screen with self-explanatory user interface, unlimited sorter pre-selection and a vision/traceability function.

Camera and LED lighting technology
We use only state-of-the-art CCD cameras as well as long-life, high-performance LED lighting systems to guarantee reliable checking and visualisation on the touch-sensitive control panel The camera head can be manually adjusted via a meter or pre-programmed according to the specific container type.
The alignment takes place via camera detection and servo-controlled container turntable.
